Walk over to Ballard’s year-round Farmers’ Market (the best!) every Sunday to pick up fresh produce, flowers and specialty goods for the week – just blocks away. Take in amazing morning sunlight and twinkling lights at night of the Ballard and Ship Canal Bridges from your living room, bedroom or balcony – even the peak of Mt. Rainier on a clear day. Enjoy never having to take your car out of the garage if desired since EVERYTHING is so very close: groceries, dining out, hardware stores, boutiques and more – the utmost in convenience! This fabulous Canal Station South one bedroom condo plus den is perfectly placed in the heart of coveted downtown Ballard and benefits from all the charm and features the neighborhood offers.

Hip. Dynamic. Impeccable.

From the moment you arrive at Canal Station South, the care and maintenance of the property is clear: a beautiful entry set back off the sidewalk, with an impressive water feature and lovely landscaping. This secure building benefits from engaged, on-site property management which is rare these days! Make your way through the gracious and well-appointed lobby to the elevators and travel to the fourth floor . . .

Unit 417 benefits from southwestern exposure so fantastic, light is abundant all times of the day! Newly painted inside this year, you will immediately see how bright this unit is all around. A foyer greets you into this beautifully maintained unit (only one family has owned!) To your left, take in a special den – useful at so many levels, some will want and need a home office, some can use as a reading library, some for guests . . . . you decide! To your right is a large entry closet and further is an actual laundry room – with a brand new, super smart LG washer/dryer tower. This machine is amazing!

As we move forward into the unit, we are welcomed by an open living / dining / kitchen floorplan, with large windows at the SW side of the room. Let’s look at this lovely kitchen first: sleek maple cabinetry offering plenty of storage, both beautiful and durable granite countertops and perfectly placed bar for workspace and additional eating area. All this but even better – this kitchen has ALL new, high-end, Samsung stainless steel appliances just installed this year, including induction cooking – nothing but the best!

Moving into the rest of this open space, enjoy all the light and the fun views from this dining and living room: city lights, Ballard and Ship Canal Bridges, even the peak of Mt. Rainier on a clear day! Plenty of room for both entertaining and day-to-day activities, this space offers it all. Plus, a lovely covered balcony to enjoy private outdoor space – take in the newspaper (yes, the newspaper!) which you can pick up from the front desk in the lobby with your morning latte.

Let’s make our way into the bedroom which is more than large enough for a king size bed and additional furniture, also with the favorable southwestern light. The bedroom has its own large, walk-in closet to help keep all your wardrobe items organized. An expansive, double vanity full bathroom also serves the unit – spacious with copious amounts of storage.

Speaking of storage, this unit comes with its own storage unit, #93 in a secure area on the first floor, conveniently placed for easy access. Additionally, Unit #417 has a covered, secure spot on P2 with its own EV charger.

Canal Station South offers multiple community areas including an events room, a gym, conference room and a beautiful and spacious outdoor patio, complete with grill and tables/chairs. Beautifully landscaped, this area also delivers a seasonal spa!

Also, no rental cap and two furry friends are welcome per unit!
