Prolific home builder Fred Anhalt was known for his distinct apartment buildings that blended Tudor, Mission, and Norman Revival styles—especially on Capitol Hill. His work would later be celebrated for bringing a single-family home feeling to dense, apartment living.

Tudor Manor, which was built in 1929 and became a condo building in the late 1980s, combines a lot of Anhalt’s architectural influences into the design, fitting Tudor gables into Mission geometry. This two-bedroom, 1,180-square-foot condo preserves its original historic look, with exposed wooden ceiling beams and ornamental archways surrounding formal spaces on the first floor. A second floor—complete with a generous landing—holds both bedrooms, wrapped in sloped ceilings and leaded-glass windows.

Anhalt was also known for his elaborate courtyards, and Tudor Manor has a classic example, with paved paths winding through a large lawn and gardens. The landscape makes for quaint, private front entrances to many of the homes, including this one.

111 14th Avenue E Unit 12 is listed for $649,000 through Wilcynski Partners. It’s not unusual for homeowners’ dues to be steep in older buildings—in this case, they’re $677 a month.
