Leavenworth Condos - 25 years of Condo Development

 

Leavenworth Condos

 

With all the new condominiums that have gone up in the last two years  in Leavenworth a casual observer might think that condominiums are just now starting to be built in our Bavarian hamlet.

 

In fact we have had new condos built on a fairly recently basis for the past 25 years, with a major project every 3-4 years.  If buying a new condo in Leavenworth isn't for you, you might see if there are resale units available in any of these condominium projects.

 

In 1983 it was the 17th Fairway Condominiums which took advantage of their location on the Leavenworth Golf Course. These are very large 2 bedroom units. (1400 square feet.)

 

The units at the Rothenburg, also on Icicle Road but closer to town were built in the same year. The Rothenburg has a very Bavarian exterior and is within walking distance to most of the tourist activities in town. These 2 bedroom units are also fairly good size at 1200 square feet.

 

Summergreen Condos at the Leavenworth Golf Course were very extravagent for Leavenworth in 1984.  The 2 bedroom units were 1600 square feet and featured brick fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs in the master bath. The even had enclosed garages instead of the carports most condos offered. Of course it's the golf course location that gives these condos value today.

 

In 1987 Alpenblick came on the scene. Alpenblick has recently been the affordable condo choice in Leavenworth. This is because only 1 bedroom units were built ranging from 815 to 887 square feet.  They also built a large number of units, preventing scarcity from causing prices to soar.

 

1990 brought us Kahler Glen.

Kahler Glen is a golf course near Lake Wenatchee that doubles as a xc ski area in the winter.  The condo units here are all 2 bedroom and nearly 1300 square feet. All are right on the course which means skiing out your door in the winter.  In 1998, Natapoc Village brought additional units to Kahler Glen.  These 2 bedroom units are located on the 18th fairway.  Condos in either project have been hard to come by of late and seem to be more popular every year.

Alpine Place is the name given to three different phases of condos built along Icicle Road close to town. (Just past the Rothenburg) The first condos were525 Alpine Place built in 1992 and 1993. These are 2 bedroom units with 958 square feet.  485 Alpine Place came in 1994 with 6 larger units (1024 square feet) and then in 2003 they built 575 Alpine Place. (Also 2 bedroom units)

The majority of these condos are either zoned for commercial use or are located outside of the Urban Growth Boundary which means they can be used as nightly rentals. (Although some do have restrictive covenants preventing rentals - Rothenburg for example.)  A few smaller projects have been built in residential multi-family areas, but without the commercial component their effect on the Leavenworth condo market has been minimal.

Geordie was great in every way. We have been looking in the Leavenworth area for some time, and Geordie was absolutely the best for local knowledge, history and depth on neighborhoods, developments and the local market trends. He was very quick to respond (even when he was on his vacation) and worked very diligently to get all of our questions answered in a very timely fashion. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Very friendly, and helped us navigate all of the local options before we made an offer on the property that we purchased. Thank you, Geordie!

It was such a pleasure to work with Geordie and his wife, Allyson on our cabin purchase. They showed us a variety of locations, listened to what we wanted and helped us find the perfect match. Everything was smooth and not stressful, just relaxed and easy. We would definitely recommend Geordie and use him again if the need arises!
