Sotheby's International Realty - Seattle, WA

A classic four square home with elements of Beaux-Art design throughout the interior… modified gothic arches, iconic columns, and Art Nouveau carvings on the grand staircase and Newell posts. All fireplaces are American art tiles. Built in 1909, as one of 5 unique granite homes on Queen Anne by enigmatic designers Bebb and Mendell for the Robinson family, who owned a wholesale grain, hay, and feed firm. The home was also the Japanese Consulate before WWII. With multiple curb cuts, a circular driveway, ample off street parking and a detached garage this home is unique for ease of parking on Queen Anne Hill. A large front door opens to high boxed ceilings and beautiful large light filling windows. All restorations have been faithfully executed by accomplished craftsmen. The parlor walls have been hand painted to match period wallpaper. Each room and the floors are finished with old growth, exotic hardwood including Paduak, Narra, White Oak, and Apitong. It can be safely said nothing was missed. 7 large bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, a utilitarian farm house kitchen round out excellent living spaces. A bar room and exquisite dining room with an original William Morris tapestry make entertaining an event. Down stairs there is a large poolroom/ media den with a museum worthy tile fireplace made by The Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. Boasting a large 12,800 SF corner double lot, this home can lend it self admirably to the newly proposed ADU zoning codes and can if needed provide excellent income potential.
