This three-bedroom Tudor Revival in Green Lake isn’t just special because of its historic details—although that helps. It was also the home of beloved Seattle artist Sheila Newman until her death in 2016.
It’s no surprise that an artist lived here. Although it could probably use a few updates, it’s bursting with its original personality, including artsy attention to detail. For example, in the living room, stained-glass and leaded-glass windows are functional decor in the walls and cabinets, surrounding a classic tile fireplace.
The ground floor is full of little nooks waiting to be activated—a small alcove connects to the living room via archway. One space has just enough room for a piano.
One more ornately carved-out space is a grand dining room, separated from the living area with a wide archway and details in the hardwood floor.
The home has three bedrooms, plus a dynamic, finished-attic bonus room underneath steeply vaulted ceilings.
Another unique area is specific to the house’s past as an artist’s home: a studio and gallery space, drenched with light and ready to inspire the next person. A wide window bench is perfect for catching a breath or reading a book.
It looks out over a finished backyard, complete with a shed. In addition to the private outdoor space, the home’s right across the street from Green Lake.
The home’s on the market for $1.7 million.
