Seattle Restauranteur Linda Derschang Lists $1.7M 'Old House'

Linda's Tavern. Smith. King's Hardware. Oddfellows. Those are just some of the Seattle restaurants, music clubs and watering holes that Linda Derschang has had a hand in. The queen of Seattle nightlife has built a local empire that in turn led to her purchasing a 1927 Interlaken Park 4-BR around 2007. Now she's selling her "old house" for $1.695M. Derschang told City Arts that she "was envisioning it as this house that someone inherited from a distant uncle, and there was already furniture there and then the punk rockers moved in and put their spin on it." The big metal "KISS" sign that greets you when you enter the front door speaks to that. Outside, a patio and expansive terraced yard might not be punk but they are pretty. Inside, exposed beams, leaded glass windows and arched entryways remain from the original architectural style while the decor makes the house very much Derschang's own. One of those things will be staying and the other, well, that's gonna be up to you.
