This distinctive building at 12th and John in Capitol Hill, built in 1929, was developed by Fred Anhalt, known for many beloved multifamily buildings with Tudor and Mission-style revival designs, despite no formal training in architecture. In this building, each unit is unique, drawing on different pockets of the building’s construction to create striking shapes and floorplans—all bringing the feel half-timbered, Tudor exterior inside.

This two-bedroom, townhouse-style condo spreads across two floors: an expansive lower level punctuated by coved ceilings and Gothic arches and an upper level with attic rooflines. Below, a large living area flows into a formal dining room. A semi closed-off kitchen has both laundry facilities and, in true townhouse style, a back door. Above, two bedrooms—one a master with a large closet and courtyard view—are both adjacent to a full bath with the tub and shower tucked into an alcove.

The neighbors share the building’s meticulously maintained, walled gardens, with brick pathways for strolling and patios for gathering.

1201 East John Street Unit 2 is listed by Redfin for $649,000.

A private entrance within an arched alcove helps maintain the townhouse effect while creating the feel of a Tudor village.
Hardwood floors, a large window bank, and a cut-out staircase help define the living area.
A Gothic arch separates the living area from the dining room.
A first-floor powder room beneath the stairs is a more recent addition, but it keeps the historic look and feel.
A large, formal dining area isn’t always a given in a condo.
The master bedroom overlooks the courtyard and the half-timbered gables of the building.
