I’m sure anyone interested in Kirkland is interested in this news item.  It’s a tremendous building at 701 Market.

It was listed for sale at $4,950,000.00 and is in escrow subject to inspection.  I invite you all to pull it up on the public sites, try click Eastside then Kirkland and put in the price to see additional photos which I am not permitted to display here per mls rules.  You can only see it before it goes pending.  Or email me at and I can email you the listing after it is pending or sold.

View from my window 

This is the view from my bedroom.  It brings me great joy at some unexpected times.  It takes my breath away and makes my day, no matter how many times I see it.  And the night view is even better.  Seattle Skyline, Space Needle to the right, and Mt. Rainer to the far left out of view of this photo.
