Tucked among other super impressive houses on 10th Avenue in north Capitol Hill, this 1907 home bordering between Victorian and Craftsman carries history—but isn’t dusty.

It makes a grand first impression, with stained glass greeting visitors at the front porch. The, the front door opens up to a classic collection of formal gathering spaces, starting with a living room complete with a brick fireplace.

Pocket doors open up to a dining room with robins-egg wainscoting that looks proper, but not stuffy—then a kitchen occupies one corner of the home, complete with a vintage stove and tons of extra pantry space.

Don’t let the classic look fool you; the home’s had some upgrades, including an elevator that can carry passengers from the first floor to the second—or take the grand staircase with a large stained-glass window at the landing.

Four of the home’s bedrooms are up here, all with hardwoods and corner views.

Climb one more flight—no elevator up here, sorry—for a wood-paneled attic sanctuary.

Staging absolutely helps with the home’s presentation—but if you’re looking for a home that looks exactly like this, you’re in luck, since many of the vintage furnishings and decor that adorns the home will be for sale once the home’s in escrow.

Down in the basement, a whole other set of living quarters—kitchen, bedroom, and bath—are a little more modern.

Outside, the bamboo-lined backyard has patios and decks create pockets for lounging.

The home’s on the market for $1.5 million.
