Oftentimes when discussing the work of Ellsworth Storey, we're talking about homes that resemble Swiss chalets or invoke an Arts and Crafts sensibility. Not so much here but that doesn't make this Federal Avenue 4-BR any less impressive. Designed by the legendary early 20th-century Seattle architect and completed in 1913, this all-red brick colonial is asking $2.2M. The interiors have been modernized and maintained, but it's the backyard that catches our attention. Vintage-style gas lights, a tranquil water feature and the sizable stone patio make it a mini-getaway of your own. Just steps from Volunteer Park, it's a Seattle classic with a direct link to the city's architectural and real estate history.
