Sophisticated home in historic Capitol Hill church

By September 29, 2020

Capitol Hill, Townhouses

Built as the First Church of Christ Scientist in 1909, this ornate and historic building was converted into luxury townhomes in 2011. With a century of history wrapped up in its walls and just 12 units, the Sanctuary is one of Seattle’s most unique—and coveted—multi-family residences. Steps from the Pike/Pine Corridor and abutting a neighborhood greenspace, a swanky two-bedroom, four-bathroom home at the Sanctuary is on the market.

An urban retreat in the heart of town, this home boasts floating steel stairs, rail-mounted stained glass and soaring ceilings. The property’s functional, 2,610-square-foot layout enjoys south-facing light and views of the neighboring Howell Collective P-Patch and Seven Hills Park. A rarity in the area, it also comes with a two-car tandem garage with Tesla charger.

With multiple living spaces and plenty of room for a desk, this multi-level home offers a plethora of flexible uses. The spacious kitchen includes a large center island, marble countertops and backsplash and a six-burner gas range. Off the kitchen, the dining room sits under dappled tones streaming through stained glass. Elsewhere in the home, a spacious master en suite provides a sense of tranquility in the middle of one of Seattle’s most densely populated neighborhoods.
