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.
