Recent NWMLS sales of The Verandas on Queen Anne from all Realtors:

The turn over in The Verandas on Queen Anne is very low and the owner occupancy rate is high.  The last sale before this one was in March of 2010.  It sold more quickly than this one.  We believe that the current market would support a much shorter days on market for any of these spectacular units coming on the market.  We also have a much larger channel of marketing than many of the other Queen Anne Realtors and would love a chance to prove it to you!

Winterfest Ice Skating at Seattle Center

Winterfest Ice Skating at Seattle Center

My daughter decided that for her borthday, she wanted to go ice skating and I told her that there was no where to skate around here.  She of course had already done her homework and pointed out that we could ice skate practically under the Space Needle if we wanted to.  Seattle Center has Winterfest going on right now and there are lots of events including…ice skating.

From the Seattle Center website:

Winterfest Ice Rink

Admission is free only to patrons wanting to watch and not ice skate. Special hours: Dec. 24 closes 4pm, Dec. 25 closed, Dec. 31 closes at 11:30pm

Ice Skating at Seattle Center was something indeed!  It was especially significant for my daughter who has grown up hearing stories of her great grandparents having their first dates ice skating at the Seattle Center.  The Winterfest Ice Skating Rink is a in Fisher Pavilion and very crowded, but a pretty amazing winter experience overall.

Seattle Center is the heart of Seattle local events.  It is a great place to explore and a wonderful part of Uptown (Lower Queen Anne).  If you are interested in Queen Anne homes or other Seattle neighborhoods that are close by Seattle Center, then let me know and I will show you my favorites!
