Capitol Hill urban townhome with skyline, Lake Union views
Built in 2009, 1312 A Lakeview Blvd. E is a three-bedroom urban townhouse on the north end of Seattle’s Capitol Hill. The home was designed by architect (and Seattleite) Sean Bell, who is known for using natural materials, emphasizing sustainability and designing for the region’s steep, difficult slopes.
An industrial aesthetic permeates throughout the home’s 1,700 square feet, including the use of concrete and steel juxtaposed with warm-toned wood and glass. Speaking of glass, the property’s entire west-facing wall is covered by dramatic, double-floor walls of windows—providing breathtaking views of Lake Union, the skyline and the Olympic Mountains. A striking gas fireplace in the living dances between an iron mantle and surround and a living edge hearth fit for cozying up on, while additional surfaces throughout the home utilize solid limestone, poplar, birch and bamboo.
The dramatic primary suite boasts a private balcony and a glass-encased bathroom complete with soaking tub. The interior of the room looks through the glass bathroom, both spaces offering western views of the city and beyond. Other show-stopping facets of the home include open wood staircases, an ultra-modern stainless steel kitchen with open shelving and pantry, spacious patio and two-car garage.
