Cozy, updated condo in Capitol Hill warehouse loft

By January 22, 2022

Capitol Hill, Lofts, Trace Lofts

This bright, updated condo in Capitol Hill offers one bedroom, one bathroom and 600 square feet in the heart of the city. One of Seattle’s most noteworthy historic warehouse conversions, this home is on the second floor of the Trace Lofts. Built in 1919, the building’s brick exterior and terra cotta detail ring true to that era. Before it was converted to condos in 2007, the Trace Lofts building operated for decades as a Bekins Storage warehouse.

Located near the bustling intersection at 12th Avenue and Madison Street, unit #211 provides a balance of modern living and historic character. Western light filters into the space, reflecting the warm tone of the wood floors and kitchen cabinetry. Industrial details, like exposed brick and steel, provide juxtaposition to the reclaimed, old-growth timber lining the vaulted ceilings.

Inside the home, an urban-style bedroom and bathroom are located off the entry hallway. Unlike some units in the building, the bedroom is a full bedroom—not a sleeping nook. The bathroom features a full-size bathtub with subway tile surround and plenty of space for linen storage. Further inside, unit #211 opens into an open-concept kitchen and living area. Three large windows overlook the neighborhood below, while the updated kitchen provides ample countertop and storage space, as well as stainless steel appliances—including a dishwasher.
