A perfect Capitol Hill remodel
It is rare for me to find a pre-1950s home that I love, but I love 718 16th Ave E. Wow!
Built in 1905, the sellers bought it in 2006 and remodeled it in 2016. You can read all about the remodel in Seattle Mag, A Capitol Hill Remodel Reveals a Family’s Dream House.
The two-story addition, built onto the rear of the house, included a relaxed family room, a spacious eat-in kitchen and a home office downstairs. A new master bedroom, complete with an en suite bathroom, and a laundry room were created upstairs. Simultaneously, the renovation also revived some of the historic character of the house by restoring the front porch, which a previous owner had enclosed. Replacing all of the house’s windows (many of the existing ones didn’t open) and installing rift-sawn white oak flooring throughout helped blur any interior distinctions between the old and the new.
Priced at $2.95m the home is nearly 4,000 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. From the tastefully landscaped yard, to the built-in grill, white rift oak floors it is an amazing transformation.
