I thought visitors might like to see what a nice older Seattle apartment building, now converted to condominiums, looks like. This view looks up at an arched window and three story facade of the 1929 Sheffield Apartments on Capitol Hill. I like the details of shield style ornaments in the windows and the reflection of the trees and sky, the sunlight on the brickwork. Most of the older apartment buildings in Seattle are made of brick this color rather than red, and most have terracotta details. I didn't know it when I took this photo, but this 23 unit building sold for $4,500,000 US $. A 530 sqft studio condo that cost the owner about $200,000 can be rented for about $1000/mo. Some real estate interior shots here. Things are pricy in the rental market. Oh, and did I mention that reg unleaded gas cost $3.29/gal this week and organic milk (the store's brand!) was $4.19 for a HALF gallon.
