Sophisticated home in historic Capitol Hill church
Built as the First Church of Christ Scientist in 1909, this ornate and historic building was converted into luxury townhomes in 2011. With a century of history wrapped up in its walls and just 12 units, the Sanctuary is one of Seattle’s most unique—and coveted—multi-family residences. Steps from the Pike/Pine Corridor and abutting a neighborhood greenspace, a swanky two-bedroom, four-bathroom home at the Sanctuary is on the market.
An urban retreat in the heart of town, this home boasts floating steel stairs, rail-mounted stained glass and soaring ceilings. The property’s functional, 2,610-square-foot layout enjoys south-facing light and views of the neighboring Howell Collective P-Patch and Seven Hills Park. A rarity in the area, it also comes with a two-car tandem garage with Tesla charger.
With multiple living spaces and plenty of room for a desk, this multi-level home offers a plethora of flexible uses. The spacious kitchen includes a large center island, marble countertops and backsplash and a six-burner gas range. Off the kitchen, the dining room sits under dappled tones streaming through stained glass. Elsewhere in the home, a spacious master en suite provides a sense of tranquility in the middle of one of Seattle’s most densely populated neighborhoods.
