One-of-a-kind Leschi home built with historic, reclaimed materials

By July 10, 2023


Built in 2004, 1358 33rd Ave. S in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood gives the impression that it’s about a century older than that. The masterfully crafted three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home offers sweeping views of Lake Washington and Bellevue, a variety of charming and versatile spaces, and an emphasis on bespoke, historic elements throughout.

Designed by Tim Hossner, the 3,100-square-foot home is laid out across two floors—each offering east-facing views toward the Cascades. Linking the home with the historic roots of early Leschi and Seattle, pieces were skillfully sourced from the Olympic Hotel, Paramount Theater, the old Wedgewood Pharmacy, and other locales. Historic elements incorporated into the home include a display case from the Friedlander Jeweler location rebuilt after the Great Seattle Fire, as well as bank teller windows, stained glass, a card catalogue cabinet, and fixtures and wood reclaimed from the farm the owner grew up on. 

Inside, the first floor offers a large-but-cozy den and adjoining library, a mudroom, and a coat closet. On the easternmost end of the lower level, two bedrooms boast water views, warm woods, and ensuite baths. Upstairs, the landing leads past a third bedroom, a bathroom, a laundry area, and into the living room and kitchen. Windows along the north and east walls of the upstairs living space provide the home’s most expansive views. Vintage swivel chairs line the kitchen bar, while a wooden diner-style booth provides even more functional square footage. The upper level’s most adaptable space sits at its interior, lined with storage nooks, potential workspaces, and a vintage display case.
