Damn. According to a press release from broker Paul Thomas, not even a sale to a well-meaning mother & daughter duo will keep the Edith Macefield House from going "Up" to heaven. Despite beating out 37 other offers for the Ballard property, the new owners have had their hopes dashed thanks to Seattle code compliance issues. The duo planned to turn the old house into a coffee and pie shop named Edith Pie. However, doing so would require bringing the 100-year-old house into compliance with 2012 commercial code that is "virtually impossible" financially.
