Capitol Hill house description

This classic Seattle Craftsman home sits on a residential street in one of the city's most active communities, Capitol Hill. 'The Hill' is known for its nightlife and diverse dining options, while our home is a private retreat from the busy streets that surround it. Many neighborhood residents do not even keep a car, because it is so easy to hop a bus or walk to neighborhood events, or even downtown.

We have a well-appointed, eat-in kitchen. You can watch dozens of neighbors walking their dogs as you have breakfast. Bring a new recipe or two with you and collect fresh ingredients from the famous Pike Street Market or the Broadway Farmers' Market to cook at home. You won't be disappointed with the amenities the kitchen has to offer, with room for multiple cooks to work together. The dining room is large enough to spread out after dinner for conversation or games.

You might want to take in a jazz show in nearby Belltown, or hear live Indie music a few blocks away in the Pike/Pine Corridor. On Broadway, two blocks away, you can take in a drag show, or enjoy a chocolate martini or dessert at Dilletente, a chocolate artisan of local renown.

Each evening, there is a gradual homecoming of seaplanes which you can view from the roof deck. They approach from the north of the city, circle the Space Needle, and find their berth for the night on Lake Union. These aircraft are sightseeing and commuter flights from Victoria and islands of Puget Sound.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: My partner Jeff and I have lived in this house for 8 years, watching the neighborhood add amenities that connect it to the city at large. We operated a former residence as a B & B for several years, which allowed us to meet fantastic travelers from around the world. We sell residential real estate, and we have learned that there is something of great interest in every neighborhood of Seattle.

                          Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
                          The density of Capitol Hill and the diversity of the people ensures that there is always something or someone to watch. If you like people or dogs, this is the place for you! Whether you have a large entertainment budget or none at all, Capitol Hill will engage you, and is a great place from which to explore any part of the city. When we are finished working or exploring for the day, we like to relax on the roof deck, from which we watch a gradual parade of sea planes returning from Victoria and the islands of Puget Sound. From their northern approach, they circle the Space Needle and descend to their berth on the south end of Lake Union. We invite you to make this small ritual a part of your summer vacation in Seattle.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          With its classic craftsman architecture, this home offers a glimpse of the past, a bit of modern luxury, and one of the best locations for shopping, coffee drinking, and bar-hopping in the Northwest. We are literally shoehorned in among multi-family dwellings, which makes our streets some of the most colorful and lively in the city.
