Updated loft-style condo in historic Queen Anne school
1401 5th Ave. W #201–a one-bedroom, one-bathroom loft-style condo a few blocks north of Kerry Park–is on the market. The home offers 766 square feet of living space, 13-foot ceilings and loads of historic charm. Built in 1896, the West Queen Anne Elementary School building was designated a landmark in 1977 and reimagined as 49 private residences in the 1980s. The Romanesque building’s four stories are covered by red brick and defined by steep rooflines and arched windows.
Unit 201 is defined by its most inviting spaces–its open, airy dining and living room spaces. Palladian windows line two walls, and an ornate, operational fireplace is covered in elegant detail sits at the center of the home. The kitchen and bathroom are cozy and well-appointed with sleek fixtures and finishes. Heated tile is underfoot in the bathroom, while the rest of the main level is covered in polished hardwood.
A staircase leads from the living area to the bedroom loft overhead. Unconventionally shaped, the bedroom provides enough square-footage for a large bed and a dresser. A small built-in shelf would be great for bedside books and/or a lamp. Looking over the edge of the loft, occupants are treated to an aerial view of their domain.
