Woodruff Marbury Somervell and Joseph Simon Cote were sent to Seattle in in the early years of the 20th century to supervise the construction of the Saint James Cathedral. They decided to stay here and formed the architecture firm Somervell and Cote, which would design some of the cities early residences and government buildings. One of those residences was the Harvard-Belmont Tudor at 803 E Prospect Street in Capitol Hill. On the market after a three-year hiatus, the historic home is asking $2.49M. The 6,810-square-foot home boasts five bedrooms, hand-carved Siberian oak trim, leaded-glass windows, ornate Italian plaster ceilings, two offices and a third-level studio. The rear gardens on this 7,500 sq. ft. lot are Olmstead-designed, just to help justify the price tag a little more.
