The open one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo in Capitol Hill’s Trace Lofts, the building was constructed in 1919 and converted to condos in 2007. For more than 100 years, the city—and Capitol Hill in particular—has grown, changed and shifted into newer versions of itself around the building. True to the style of the era, the its brick exterior and terra cotta ornamentation have remained, as well as many interior features and touches.
The 614-square-foot home is a blend of historic architecture and modern amenities, boasting an open-concept floor plan and a full-sized kitchen. The industrial-chic unit features exposed steel framing, original brick walls, old-growth timber beams and reclaimed Douglas Fir floors. Facing the south, the home offers picture views into the heart of Capitol Hill, as well as provides unmatched access to the rest of town.
Inside the home and down the main interior hallway, you’ll pass a sizable bathroom with plenty of storage and bathtub with a subway tile surround. Across from the bathroom, a closet houses a stackable washer/dryer. Further inside, past the open bedroom and desk nook, the space opens into the large kitchen and living room. To the right, the kitchen—featuring sleek cabinets, stainless steel appliances and stone countertops—lines one wall. Opposite of that, the living area can be functionally set up in a variety of configurations. Oversized windows line the southernmost wall, providing three cozy bench spaces for additional seating or storage.
Community amenities at the Trace Lofts include an expansive rooftop deck with entertaining space, a large BBQ grill and sweeping city views. Garage parking and storage units are conveniently located across the hall from unit 208.
