The home is a generous 3,290 square feet.
The home, constructed in 1941 by noted Washington architect, C. Frank Mahon, was built for Dr. Arthur Jordan and his wife, Anne Jordan. Eighty years later, the original Tudor lines and details are still intact for the enjoyment of its next owner — for the price of $2.195 million.
This historic home’s architect is best known for buildings many Washingtonians might be familiar with. “Mahon’s most notable designs are probably the Holy Rosary Church in Tacoma (in the news because it is in danger of being demolished), and the Hotel Hungerford at 400 Spring St., today’s Executive Hotel Pacific,” Barbara Manning of Seattle House Histories wrote.
In this home, we see Mahon’s reverence for Tudor Revival design. Well preserved are the ogee mouldings and peaked angles inside, as well as the mahogany and copper details that adorn the cedar and brick exterior.
Modern updates are also notable: a bright, well-equipped kitchen; remodeled bathrooms; a bonus rec room in the basement level; and a landscaped lot that makes the most of the property’s dimensions. All this adds to the home’s overall unique blend of the best of centuries past with the demands and desires of a 2021 lifestyle.
