Historic, $3.6 M Capitol Hill home neighbors Seattle’s Volunteer Park

Written by Desmond

Originally built in 1905, this Capitol Hill Neoclassical home has an iconic history and location. The asking price is currently $3.599 million. 

At 1013 15th Ave. East, it neighbors Volunteer Park.

The home’s grand lines, marked by its classic columns, make for excellent curb appeal. 

The property has been extensively remodeled. We might expect that, given the home’s age. But the home’s facelift, in this case, is recent.

A wide front porch embellished with elegant carved wood accents, offers a luxurious perch. 

In 2020, the property sold for $1.775 million. Now, after less than two years, the asking price is substantially higher. That price speaks not only to the increased demand for homes that allow residents to work from home in luxurious way, but also to the scope of the remodel. 

The kitchen has been remodeled for today’s home chefs. 

A butler’s pantry off the kitchen includes storage, sink, and wine fridge. 

The kitchen opens to a deck. 

The home’s lovely bones can be attributed to the Seattle architectural firm Kingsley and Anderson, a partnership of architects Joseph Anderson and William Kingsley. Kinglsey’s resume also includes Seattle’s glorious Orpheum Theater #5, built in 1911 and sadly demolished in 1949.  The Beaux Arts Neoclassical themes that inspired the architect team is still very much apparent in the home more than 115 years later. 

Dramatic beamed ceilings gleam in the main level entry hall.

The the five-bedroom, four-bathroom abode is 5,160 square feet in diameter.

The home’s bedrooms look out on picture perfect Capitol Hill views. 

From the formal dining room, to the library, to the top floor ballroom, “not one stone has been left unturned” in seeking to marry the original design with contemporary luxury, according to the official listing.

This library/office is paneled in warm hardwoods. 

An upper level ballroom is configured now as a home theater and lounge. 

In the finished basement are a recreation room, utility room and studio.

In the finished basement are all the possibilities today’s lockdown savvy home buyers look for. 

The glittery stone of the front entry is charming by twilight. 

 The park is just a few minutes walk from the 5,670 square foot lot. 

The home neighbors Seattle’s Volunteer Park.
