Welcome to the Seattle Turret House, a Landmark Victorian in Seattle's charming and historic Capitol Hill district. We are ideally located on a quiet residential street, just a short walk to excellent grocery stores, busy cafes and world class restaurants.

Super convenient location for most major tourist attractions, with easy access to Downtown, Pike Place Market, Seattle Center, Seattle University, First Hill, Ferry Terminals, University of Washington Campus and much much more.

Very unique, roomy and comfortable.

There is a large master bedroom, which can be adjoined to the living room by opening 2 huge original pocket doors, plus a 2nd bedroom--both equipped with queen size beds, down pillows, comforters and quality linens.

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: Hello, I'm William, I've lived on Capitol Hill since 1990 and still it's my favorite Seattle neighborhood! I'm happy to help you find your way around the city or direct you to some of my favorite sites and restaurants. . . I speak English and French.

                  Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
                  Capitol Hill is a gorgeous historic neighborhood, with beautiful homes and gardens, and super convenient to all the things I love about Seattle! It's quiet and peaceful yet everything you need is close and easy to get to . . . if you like to walk and see the real character and street life of a city this is a perfect place to stay. The building itself is very charming, with unique architectural details and character, the apartments are comfortable and a quiet retreat for relaxing at the end of your day . . . overall a great base for exploring the city of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Ideal location in a great walkable neighborhood, close to excellent food markets (e.g., Trader Joe's, Madison Market Co-op), a great variety of restaurants, coffee shops, taverns & nightclubs, all surrounded by historic mansions, lovely gardens and unusual architecture. From here it's easy to get to most of the major tourist attractions (Pike Place Market, Space Needle, Houseboats, ferries, etc). Be sure to visit Volunteer Park, the Olmstead-designed crown jewel of Seattle Park System and home of the Seattle Asian Art Museum, a lovely Plant Conservatory, and at that top of the water tower the most amazing 180 degree view in the city!
