Property Details

Proudly sited high off of the street and dressed with a handsome wrap-around porch is this pretty Grand Dame. A winding walkway leads up from the street through verdant gardens with heirloom grafted fruit trees, deciduous trees, flowering plants and a small yard. The home may also be accessed from the brick paved alleyway and level private enclosed courtyard with Pennsylvania blue stone patio.

The property is located a few short blocks away from many of Seattle’s favorite parks and restaurants! The home boasts of a multitude of Queen Anne Victorian characteristics; balustrade spindles, classical columns, large 1 over 1 windows with diamond patterned wood clad upper windows and extensive porches and verandas. The turret room features vaulted ceilings, clerestory windows and a private balcony with tree top lake, mountain, and territorial views.

A gracious entry hall welcomes with a gleaming oak floors and a formal staircase. Unique to this home are walls of exposed brick, over-sized windows allowing generous amounts of light to spill in, 2 story turret & den with wet bar. In traditional Victorian styling there are smaller rooms which perfectly lend themselves to intimate gatherings or large scale entertaining. The showcase kitchen is highlighted by granite counter-tops, cherry floors, custom cabinets, laundry room and access to the Pennsylvania bluestone patio. Upstairs are four well proportioned bedrooms, 2 baths, spacious landing and attic storage. Downstairs is a guest apartment/nanny quarters with 2 bedrooms, family room, eat-in kitchen and bath.
