No two apartments in the historic Anhalt Building are alike. The building at 12th and John in Capitol Hill was built in 1929 by Fred Anhalt, known for many beloved multifamily buildings with Tudor and Mission-style revival designs, despite no formal training in architecture.

Each unit draws on different points of the building’s design to create unique floorplans, although we’ve typically seen the neighboring condos in bigger sizes—with price tags to match—than this 443-square-foot studio apartment.

Despite being smaller than its neighbors, it still packs in the architecture that makes these homes stand out. It also, typical to the building, has an interesting layout for a studio, with a foyer and a kitchen and dining area set aside from the living and sleeping area. It even has a small, private balcony off the kitchen for all your grilling or herb-growing needs. The building shares a larger deck for outdoor gatherings.

1201 E John Street Unit 4 is listed for $318,000 through Windermere.

The front door is located inside a grand entrance to the building.
A foyer is bounded by a classic Tudor archway on one side and plenty of closet space on the other.
A window bank in the main living and sleeping area brings the Tudor exterior inside.
The kitchen and dining area, set back from the main area, achieves even more visual separation with a large nook.
Period millwork continues into a full bathroom.
A courtyard features brick paths surrounding a central tree. Behind it, a building with brick below and half-timbering above wraps around the courtyard.
