In a happy development, a whole spate of appealing condominium homes have come on the market this past week. I tooled around with clients and visited several of them today on Capitol Hill and First Hill, each just as good as the last. This one, though, it captured our imagination and I daresay even a heart or two.
The Twin Gables condominium is classic Anhalt, built in 1929 in his signature Tudor Revival style with courtyard entry, high beam ceilings, hand-carved woodwork, lead glass windows. Romantic. Like living a fairy tale. Except in this fairy tale the kitchen and bath have been sumptuously updated.
One of Anhalt’s most agreeable features, I think, is that his apartments had both a front and a back door. From the kitchen, step through the back door of this home onto leafy 16th Avenue East, the prettiest street of historic homes in all of Seattle.
This new listing will be open again tomorrow, Sunday, May 3rd from 1 to 3 p.m. You will fall in love.
