Heart and Home


Ann Wilson just sold her dreamy rock and roll mansion in Interlaken Park on one of Seattle’s prettiest roads, a favorite route of mine that winds through the urban woods. Originally listed last March for $6,150,000, this 3/4 acre property with its historic 7000 square foot home has closed for $4,320,000.

If these walls could talk.

When it was first built in 1912 as a hotel, The Boulevard Inn, luminaries of that time such as Ethyl Barrymore visited.

Elizabeth Ayer, the first female architect to graduate from the University of Washington, made it her home in the 1930’s. Most of her design elements remain today.

Ann Wilson bought the property in 1980 for $460,000. In an interview with Seattle Refined , Wilson says ALL the Seattle rockers partied here, “All the guys in Soundgarden, all they guys in Pearl Jam, all the guys from Mud Honey, the Nirvana people, the Alice in Chain people.” Her sister Nancy and Cameron Crowe were married in the living room in 1987.

















Ann lives in Florida now, still making music.

Rock on. For more info and photos, check out Curbed Seattle or the listing broker’s beautiful website Interlaken Drive Manor.

    Great pool shape. The house looks lightly haunted – in a good way.
