Historic condo in Capitol Hill warehouse conversion
Located in one of Seattle’s more impressive warehouse conversions, 1408 12th Ave. #206 is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo in Capitol Hill. Constructed in 1919, the Trace Lofts building—a Bekins Storage warehouse for decades—was converted into condos in 2007. The city has evolved around it for more than a century, but the building’s exterior brick, terracotta detail and a variety of in-unit touches remain true to the era.
The 728-square-foot unit is a blend of historic architecture and modern amenities, boasting an open-concept layout and full-sized kitchen, as well as 13-foot ceilings and exposed timber beams. Though the building is situated on a busy block in one of the city’s most bustling neighborhoods, unit 206 is positioned on the quieter, more private side of the property.
Just inside, past a generously sized bathroom, the space opens into the living and dining rooms. With exposed brick and reclaimed Douglas fir floors, the home is flanked on one side by a private, covered balcony running the length of the living room. Off the warm, inviting living space, there’s a bedroom alcove with walk-in closet. On the opposite side of the home, a well-lit kitchen with breakfast bar, white oak cabinets, basalt counters and terrazzo backsplash.
In addition to a lofted storage area above the bathroom, unit 206 at the Trace Lofts comes with dedicated storage and reserved parking.
