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?

    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.
