Queen Anne Townhouse with Elevator

Don’t want a house but don’t want to deal with all the stairs of a townhouse? Here’s a $925k townhouse at 423 Ward St in Queen Anne with an elevator. (What’s the maintenance on a private elevator like??)

I don’t get the frosted windows in the kitchen?

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    I’m just guessing here, but wouldn’t the frosted windows be for privacy from whoever is looking down on the front of the townhouse from higher up, behind it?  I mean, they have a photo that appears to be taken from the vantage point I’m talking about.

    To hide the view of  the street and a mansion of windows looking down on them.  Not quite sure why they need so many north facing windows anyway.  

    BTW: you forgot the link  (
    MLS #319728

    ).  I would have included it, but when I link to anything it never seems to get posted.

    Hi Matt,
    I’m the owner of the townhouse.  The frosted windows are for privacy.  My husband and I wanted as much natural light as possible without living in a fishbowl.  Oh, and the price is $925k.  Thanks for including us! I read your blog all the time.

    Thanks for commenting! Don’t know how I messed up the price, I must have been looking at an old listing.

    So good to know that our dream condo exists. Now only if we could come up with that extra $425k we seem to be missing!

    This is beautiful. Nicely done, Susan.

    I toured one of these a couple years ago; I remember the elevator, and that great view

    Thank you! We enjoyed living there, we hope the next owners do too.
