About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 7

Amazing Classic Capitol Hill Home! 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house on a quiet street.

Tons of old world charm in this well maintained 110-year old home including original fixtures, hardwood floors, wood trim, coved ceilings and leaded glass windows. All systems are upgraded including a forced air gas furnace and an “endless” hot-water boiler so your group won’t run out of hot water while taking showers in the morning.

A great location: Our home is located two blocks east of Volunteer Park, a beautiful Olmstead Legacy Park. We are located just two miles northeast of downtown Seattle and two miles south of the University of Washington within easy bus service.

This home is our primary residence but we spend enough time in Japan and elsewhere that we now consider it our “home while we are in Seattle” and make it available on VRBO while we are not in town. We also rent our Whistler Canada condo on VRBO’s platform (see

Why Gary chose Stevens

We love our Capitol Hill house for its great location and realize that if we sold it we would never be able to buy another home in our neighborhood where prices are now in excess of $2 million. We walk everywhere! This is the description from "Walk Score:"

1153 17th Avenue East has a Walk Score of 74 out of 100. This location is Very Walkable so most errands can be accomplished on foot.

1153 17th Avenue East is a 24 minute walk from the LINK at the Capitol Hill Link Station stop.

This location is in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle. Nearby parks include Volunteer Park, Volunteer Park and Louisa Boren Overlook
