Chic, artsy rooftop condo in Capitol Hill
One of just two private rooftop homes built atop Capitol Hill’s Harvard Market complex, 816 E. Union St. is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo. The chic, contemporary property in the heart of one of Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhoods was most recently home to Greg Kucera, a longtime art dealer who retired this year and sold his Pioneer Square gallery to its employees.
The home’s entry opens onto a zen, landscaped courtyard with a reflecting pool, arbors, trellises and a 20,000-square-foot rooftop garden. Accessible via a set of French doors in the kitchen, the patio offers an ideal setting for dining alfresco with views of the surrounding neighborhood and nearby towers. Elsewhere, enjoy cultivating plants in the greenhouse and planting veggies in your raised, container beds.
Inside, a central gallery-like space with 10-foot ceilings separates the public entertaining spaces with more private, informal areas. The open-concept living and dining areas adjoin the kitchen, which boasts marble counters, custom wood cabinetry, and appliances from Sub-Zero, Bosch, and Wolf. The primary ensuite bedroom features a walk-in closet, floor-to-ceiling windows, a soaking tub and double-vanity. Elsewhere, two guest bedrooms with direct patio access share a full bathroom.
