Broadmoor Bargains

In the last 3 months some lucky buyers have managed to purchase some wonderful homes in the neighborhood for unbelievable prices. On June 29th, 1919 Shenandoah Dr E sold for $1,050,000. The 4 bedroom 3 bath brick tudor home is 3970 sq ft. The lot size 8,362. The home certainly needed some work, but in spite of that the home is assessed at $1,991,000. On September 30th a Parkside Drive East sold for $905,000. This 4 bedroom 3.25 bathroom brick colonial is 3,820 sq ft and sits on a 8,624 sq ft lot. The home is assessed at $1,500,000. These homes are the most notable of the most recent Broadmoor sales as they were purchased for far less than their assessed value. I never thought I would see values like this in Broadmoor, and I thought that the likelihood of another such opportunity coming up again anytime soon was highly unlikely. Well I was wrong. A 5 bedroom 3.25 bathroom brick tudor just hit the market and the asking price is $950,000. The homes assessed value is close to $1,300,000. Some lucky buyer should end up getting this Broadmoor home for a great price!

Sections of Highway 520 Closed This Weekend

Drivers, be aware.  A section of Highway 520 from Montlake Boulevard in Seattle to I-405 will be closed over the weekend (September 16th-18th) as workers begin to demolish an overpass on Bellevue Way NE for the Eastside Transit and HOV Project.  This portion will be closed from 11:00 pm Friday to 5:00 am Monday morning.  Those of you who are residents in neighborhoods near to the 520 on-ramp by Montlake (Broadmoor, Madison Park, etc.), consider yourself warned.  Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes if heading towards the Eastside out of Seattle.  Please see this Seattle Times article with closure details for more information.

A great article about a remarkable Seattle golfer who brought big time golf tournaments to Broadmoor.
