Use the butler’s pantry to enter the kitchen or come in from the entryway. From the kitchen there’s easy access to the lovely deck and the 2 car garage. A 3/4 bath rounds out the main floor before you head up the convenient back stairs from the kitchen to the second floor or use the front hall stairs to go up to the bedrooms.
Absolutely gorgeous stained glass windows fill the landing of the staircase. And two more stained glass windows pair up on either side of the entry to shine lovely light into the space.
Come up the graceful staircase, past the gorgeous stained glass windows, to a spacious landing and discover the four large bedrooms and a stylishly remodeled bath. Two of the bedrooms have graceful French doors with beveled, leaded glass and one has a round, architectural window, walk in closet, and a cozy corner for a reading chair.
Recently described by The Seattle Times as “Pretty much Seattle’s capital of everything cool,” Capitol Hill is edgy and also elegant and upscale, with tree-lined streets, 19th-century mansions, John Charles Olmsted's Volunteer Park and the Seattle Asian Art Museum. Converted warehouses, modern high-rises, colorfully painted two-story homes, and brick mansions all occupy the same neighborhood. There are parks aplenty, cute, quirky shops to browse, and some of the best schools, restaurants, cafes & breweries in the city.
This elegant home also boasts a great location, only two miles from Downtown and South Lake Union, six minutes from the University of Washington and a short walk to the Washington Park Arboretum. Capitol Hill’s major employers include Amazon, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle University, Facebook and Seattle Central College.
