Cute Queen Anne Cottage Listed for $1.1 Million

By Kelly Knickerbocker

Sitting hillside on the western slope of Queen Anne, this single-family home—built in 1928 and just a few blocks from Interbay’s busy 15th Avenue—is on the market for $1.1 million. Vintage with a modern pulse, this property offers just over 2,000 square feet of living space, plus updates galore without minimizing the home’s history.

From the curb, this home’s bright blue trim along the roofline, doorway, and windows livens up an otherwise tempered white exterior. A gabled roof reaches several peaks, but the highest emanates just above the front door, creating a focal point at the home’s perfect-for-potted-plants-sized front porch. Heading to or from the house, you’ll walk along a red brick sidewalk boasting a herringbone pattern.

Inside, a bright and airy space welcomes. Large windows line the living room walls, and light-colored hardwoods—which are in excellent shape and continue throughout the home’s main floor—keep the space anchored in light. Like the colorful Laurelhurst Tudor recently featured, this house includes a sought-after Batchelder tile fireplace for gathering ‘round.

The kitchen is cozy, but fully updated with gorgeous marble countertops and a Viking range. There’s a formal dining room, but the informal dining room is more interesting. It sits beside the kitchen and offers enough space for a four-person table. A floor-to-ceiling built-in sits against the walls, and includes ample storage and display space. French doors lead from the informal dining room onto a sunny, west-facing deck above the garage and overlooking the backyard.

The master bedroom of this monochrome home includes an en-suite bathroom—with double sinks and shower covered in subway tile—and a walk-in closet.

Of note: The master bedroom is the only bedroom on the main floor. The kids will have to hang out downstairs.

In the home’s large lower level, there are two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, a media room, laundry facilities and interior access to the garage.

$7.8 Million Price Tag for Historic Queen Anne Home

By Travis Pittman

A Queen Anne home designed in the 19th Century for a prominent architect is on the market for cool $7.8 million.

The Seattle Historical Society (SHS) says the Riddle-Irwin House overlooks the Space Needle and Puget Sound. It was designed in 1899 for attorney Charles A. Riddle by Edwin W. Houghton who later became an architect. Some of Riddle’s work is still alive today, such as Seattle’s Moore Theater and Hotel.

The two-story home on a corner lot has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a theater room, and a wine cellar.


The house is a Shingle style, which SHS says “is distinguished by its rounded forms, smoothly covered with wood shingles, making the cladding an organic skin.”

The interior was remodeled in 1941 and again in 1980.

Riddle and his wife lived there until his death in 1928 and was later purchased by Dr. Lilian Irwin, hence its name Riddle-Irwin House.

Thanks to for spotting this gem.

The Least Expensive Homes in Upper Queen Anne Still Start at $1 Million

By Tom Trimbath

Finding five of the least expensive homes in upper Queen Anne has clicked over into the seven digit range. Last October, there were five under $1 million. Here in July of 2017, they start at a nice round $1 million and head up from there. Even added together, they’re still cheaper than the most expensive home in the neighborhood, which is listed for $7.5 million

Via Windermere

It’s boldly blue. A 1911 classic craftsman is straightforwardly priced at $1 million. The 3,110-square-foot house can ease that mortgage payment thanks to a downstairs rental. Combined, the home has six bedrooms and three bathrooms.

With a 4,791-square-foot lot, don’t be surprised if the neighbors are close. Frosted windows provide some privacy, as does mature foliage and some fencing. Enjoy roses and cherries.

From the outside, this $1.18 million home looks like it could be a vintage Victorian, but from the inside it’s obvious that it was built much more recently: 1995. Granite kitchen counters and stainless steel appliances are up to date. The fireplace is surrounded by decorative tiles, but is gas, which makes it cleaner. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms help fill the 1,790-square-foot house on the 3,598-square-foot lot.

Bright red handles stand out in the kitchen of this 2,620-square-foot home from 1923. Modern improvements like retractable windows allow the kitchen and nook to extend onto a sunny deck. Inside, find three bedrooms and two updated bathrooms. Outside, a brick patio is surrounded by brick walls for a private place for entertaining on the 3,789-square-foot lot. The price for this home with views: $1,198,000.

Via Queen Anne

Unmistakable heritage is on display inside this 1915 craftsman. Rich wood trim is broad and bold, and is only the beginning as wood panels and ceiling accents carry the color through several rooms. An ornate brick hearth is bracketed by stained glass. The artistic package is priced at $1.12 million, and comes with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, 2,420 square feet inside, and 2,600 square feet outside.

Scalloped siding suggests an older style, which helps this 1995 home fit in well with Queen Anne’s heritage. Modern kitchen and bathrooms (3) are a welcome luxury. Three bedrooms are the core of the 2,660-square-foot space. Coved ceilings and creative paint schemes bring character to room like the formal dining room. The $1.2 million package includes the 3,920-square-foot lot and water views.
