Historic Fort Lawton Officer’s Row home at Discovery Park
One of five homes on Fort Lawton’s Officer’s Row, 4002 Washington Ave. W was built in 1900 and housed senior military officers until the U.S. Army post closed in 1973. The history-filled Colonial Revival home offers four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and unbeatable access to one of Seattle’s most treasured public spaces. Situated alongside the trees and bluffs at Magnolia’s 534-acre Discovery Park, the home was carefully renovated in 2017 to incorporate modern-day conveniences while preserving its historic attributes.
Up a few stairs, the front and side of the home are covered by a sizable wrap around porch—an ideal spot for entertaining or simply enjoying your western view of the park, Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains. Inside, the kitchen features custom blue-grey cabinets, quartz counters and Miele appliances—including a gas range. Elsewhere, recent updates include new electrical and plumbing systems, refinished doors, hydronic in-floor heat, a 40-year roof and hardwood floors.
In addition to the bedrooms and main common areas, the 3,620-square-foot home features ample flex space throughout. Downstairs, there’s a brick-walled basement, as well as a top-floor lofted area. The home includes a detached two-car garage, and common areas for Officer’s Row residents include a community veggie garden, gazebo with firepit and two playgrounds.
