Enso Update

I attended Enso's sneak preview event for brokers a couple days ago.  In response to the current market conditions, the developer has revised their pricing on their homes.  There was a pretty big turn out for the event.  All their 12th floor homes were opened for viewing. 

Here are a couple observations:

1.) Interior finish quality is high and similar to what is being displayed in the Discovery center.

2.) Floor plans are well laid out, half of the homes feature dual fireplaces.

3.) I liked the little details such as built-in wine holder and shelves for their kitchen cabinets and built-in bathroom shelves with tiled back-splash.

4.) Supporting columns in some of these homes are less intruding into the living space than what you typically see in other condos like Avenue One and 1521.

5.) Sound insulation is pretty good considering it's located on Denny Way (high traffic area) and is comparable to Rollin (which is now an apartment).

6.) Good range of views of City, South Lake Union and Queen Anne.

Price Sheet and Floor Plans.

My favorite one bedroom floor plans are the 02 and 03.  The view is looking towards lake Union with partial Queen Anne views.  Good sized bedrooms with walk in closet.  The bathroom is accessible from the bedroom and living room.  As for two bedrooms, I think my favorite one would be the 07 floor plan.  There are two walls of windows, you get a good amount of sunlight and a good range of city views.  The layout is also very open.  I bet if they have a twilight open house in the fall, the views will be very nice.

Overall, the building seemed really solid, good floor plans (no weird layouts), lots of views and priced very competitively with resale condos. If you are a fan of the South Lake Union neighborhood and looking for a view home, there is quite a selection from Enso.
