This 1907 condo got a posh update while keeping vintage details—including a fireplace

Seattle has a beautiful selection of vintage brick buildings, with varying levels of quality and charm: Some, for better or for worse, have all their vintage features intact. Others live more modern, but look more modern, too.

This two-bedroom condo in lower Queen Anne has the best of both worlds: a careful restoration with modern conveniences that keeps all the original handsome features that make living in a 110-year-old building worth it. It’s not just about the built-ins and clawfoot tub (although those stuck around, too). In an era where restorations have made apartments smaller and smaller, it keeps the layout typical to the time, too, with both a formal living and dining area ready for entertaining. That plus two bedrooms makes the place measure up at 867 square feet, the size of some Seattle bungalows.

The place is listed for $619,900. While the homeowners dues are steep, at $709 a month, it includes water, sewer, gas, and heat. (Plus, these old buildings are expensive to maintain.) Take a look.

A cozy living area is anchored by a palladian window.
Sliding wooden doors can open up the space between the living room and the master.
Two bedrooms are decently sized, including a master through double doors from the living room—complete with walk-in closet that’s more like a dressing room.
Newer fixtures make for a better shower while not clashing with the clawfoot tub.
A large, formal dining area has an extra dose of charm, with a built-in cabinet (perfect for crystal and linens) and the original radiator.
The real focal point of the dining room is probably the brick fireplace, something that doesn’t always stick around in an apartment or condo for more than a century.
