This tudor revival penthouse feels like a single-family home from the inside, with four bedrooms and nearly 2500 square feet of space. Step outside into a denser, shared courtyard with a handful of other homes curved around it.

The building was developed by Fred Anhalt, known for many multifamily buildings with normal, tudor, and mission-style designs—many neighboring this one in Capitol Hill. In this home, he built a detailed tudor-revival exterior. Inside, this home is more reminiscent of Spanish revival, with white stucco walls punctuated by richly-finished wood accents.

There’s no part of this home that’s lacking for space. In the main living area, vaulted cathedral ceilings with exposed beams top original hardwood floors, archways, and an open staircase swooping upward to the ceiling’s apex.

A larger archway atop the stairs leads to three of the bedrooms, including a spacious master suite with a large bathroom, sitting area, and walk-in closet.

Vaulted ceilings line the edges of some of these upstairs areas, including two bedrooms. In the second bathroom on the floor, a sloped ceiling creates an alove for a bathtub.

Stairs curl downward from the living room into a dining room and an uncharacteristically gigantic kitchen for a condo.

From here, a door leads to a large back patio—perfect for bringing ingredients to and from a barbecue.

The meticulous design and location at 12th and John in Capitol Hill both feed into the seven-figure listing price: $1.3 million.
