This house was built in 1906 in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood and looks like the Classic American Family Home to me — although the truth is, despite what we see in movies and TV shows, few of us actually live in houses like this, do we? (I wish!) It’s been restored and redecorated, so let’s take a look around.
The listing agent says: “Recently showcased as the cover story in noted Luxe Interiors + Design mag as the Comeback Kid, this 1906 Capitol Hill classic was exquisitely restored to create lively, livable spaces for everyone.”
It sits a block away from Volunteer Park and Millionaire Row.
This photo was also included in the listing and appears to be a “before” shot of the same living room above:

The house has 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, and 5,100 square feet.
How fabulous would it be to grow up in a bedroom like this with a sunroom off it?
Check out this playhouse in the basement. My daughter would flip:
I’m really loving the look of wood countertops on kitchen islands. If I ever get around to remodeling my kitchen, this is on my list of things I’d like to have:
The listing says: “New Chef’s Kitchen with custom cabinets is the center of the house with new Viking, Sub-Zero, Miele appliances and Carrera marble counters and backsplashes and custom walnut butcher block island.”
Want it? Asking price is $2,325,000. For more photos and information, check the Windermere listing. (Thanks to Kim for telling me about it!)
I found this old postcard of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle taken around the time this house was built in the early 1900s and thought it was so cool. Can’t you picture this house sitting alongside the others in the photo?
