Hjärta – Living Green, and Making Green
Hear what you will about home sales in Seattle, but we continue to find success stories all over the place. The latest news is that Ballard-based Hjärta Condos has closed 13 sales in three months! Living green!
There are two reasons for this tremendous burst of success. The first one is price reductions. A review was done on every unit and pricing was readjusted accordingly. Low HOA dues and FHA financing are also helping to close deals. The second is that Hjärta is currently the only LEED Silver-certified suburban Seattle condominium development. Constructed of concrete and steel, it also includes high-performance fiberglass windows, a central gas boiler instead of individual water heaters, and energy-efficient elevators. Hjärta owners average a 30% reduction in energy bills. Buyers are finding this competitive with buildings of wood frame construction.
Hjärta’s Ballard location is only 10 minutes north of downtown Seattle. It’s also within walking distance of public transportation, locally-owned shopping, dining, salons, coffee shops, movie theaters, groceries and recreation. Speaking of recreation, the area is pedestrian and bicycle-friendly. Old Ballard Avenue is nearby, as is Market Street, plus you’re a mile away from the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks.
There’s some great amenities, too. Hjärta’s rooftop garden provides raised beds for vegetables, flowers and herbs. Add some lush professional landscaping and it provides a peaceful retreat from the day, not to mention spectacular city, water and mountain views. An elegant common area features a pool table, catering kitchen, fireplace and internet access. Comfortable for socializing, it also opens to a private, inviting outdoor deck. It’s the perfect place to host old friends or meet new neighbors.
That’s enough about amenities for your soul… how about some for your body? Aside from the ease of walking and biking, Hjärta also has a private Yoga Room which provides mats, straps, blocks and other accoutrements for resident use. Its Workout Room is perfect for a good cardio or weight workout, with natural daylight and a TV to keep you moving.
Currently, one bedroom homes start at $259,950. A one bedroom corner unit with 917 sq ft is priced at $319,950. They also have two bedroom homes. One recently sold at $379,950, and a corner unit with an outdoor patio is currently priced at $409,950. Penthouses on the 7th and 8th floors are also available.
All in all, Hjärta offers a nice mix of green, high-rise living in a neighborhood setting. If you would like more information or to schedule a private tour, just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.Email
