If you live in Seattle, you’ve driven by this home and it has captured your imagination. The belle of the ball! Once upon a time built to preside over Empire Way (known today, of course, as Martin Luther King Jr. Way), this home exudes the grandeur of another time with voluminous spaces and sweeping views of downtown Seattle and all surrounding environs. In the past decade, this Victorian mansion was restored and completely re-imagined with a modern aesthetic, and it is cool.
2753 South Washington Street, Leschi, Seattle. Offered at $839,000. Five bedrooms, five bathrooms, four floors of living space, all meticulously finished. 4300 interior feet. Wrap around porches, upstairs and down. Entertain in style and everyone can spend the night afterwards! Built in 1904 on a 5000 foot lot. Detached garage.
Granted, this is rather the outskirts of what one might consider to be Leschi but included in the Leschi neighborhood boundaries nonetheless. And what a fair trade when you consider such dramatic and expansive spaces, as well a siting that affords these impressive views.
Open Thursday 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
