*yawn*


What? You expect me to put the lid down? Pshaw. For a mere $520,000, it really isn't worth my time.

They just want to show that for $520,000 you get a toilet seat that goes *up* as well as down.

For $520,000 I sure don't want to live right next to an exit ramp for an interstate highway. Don't let the dog out!

$520k for that? Makes greater Boston look sane.

well, after seeing other bathrooms on this site, i think it's a plus to keep the lid up so that you can see that someone actually kept it clean!

This is to show that expensive homes have toilets that you can use, rather than the fake ones in poor houses.

Hey! That's in my neighborhood!

I drive past that house nearly every day.

Yes, Seattle real estate is ridiculously high (higher than Boston, but not quite as bad as San Francisco), but we are cooling off with the economic downturn.

What's wierd is that it's almost as if the bank wants to keep this house, given the sad state of the cosmetic cleanliness, and the bad photos.

It's actually got good bones, hasn't been screwed up by a lot of bad remodels, and used to have nice landscaping before they foreclosed and let it sit for six months.

The freeway proximity looks worse than it is - I-5 is elevated through this section and has baffle walls and landscaped vegetation keeping the noise down to a whisper. There's one of the best park-n-rides for hopping a bus downtown directly under the freeway nearby, and this will be within 2 blocks of the new light rail station in a few years.

The place is on a beautiful tree-lined boulevard with a grass median (they were designed by Olmstead in the early days of the city) has a super location near two popular large parks (Cowan/Ravenna and Green Lake) and the University of Washington. It's in a residential neighborhood, but everything a person would want is walking distance - groceries, movies, nightlife...

Plus, they managed to take a photo of the back, not the front of the house.

If the bank was serious about selling this place, they'd bring in a yard service, a housecleaner, then stage the place, and take better photos.

It would look like it's worth $520,000 then, maybe....

Did anyone else notice what seems to be a note on the toilet lid?

My goodness, Julie Anne, they should hire you to sell this house for them!
