From downtown to Capitol Hill

| Via Windermere

King County Metro route 10 is a relatively short route, traveling roughly three miles from downtown to the northeastern edge of Volunteer Park.

It starts off in the Pike and Pine corridor downtown, then heads east on Pike (Pine on the way back down) to Capitol Hill, turning on Olive and sticking with it as it turns into John. Then it heads north on 15th Avenue—the main bus serving this micro-neighborhood of the Hill.

Eventually, it runs past Volunteer Park before stopping near by Lake View Cemetery.

Because it runs through some of Seattle’s densest areas, the inventory is heavily dominated by condos. Once it gets far enough north on 15th, though, it starts heading though one of Seattle’s most mansion-heavy neighborhoods—an abrupt change in scenery from one block to the next.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route, from the edge of First Hill to right by Volunteer Park.

211 Summit Ave E
Seattle, WA 98102

While this Capitol Hill one-bedroom condo has some very 1980s design, it makes up for a lot with a wood-burning fireplace and a long balcony that stretches from the bedroom to the living room. This one’s going for $400,000, plus $276 a month in HOAs.

409 16th Ave E
Seattle, WA 98112

This one-bedroom corner unit has been heavily renovated to have a more modern look, but its 1911 origins are apparent in the boxbeam ceilings inside—and the gorgeous brickwork outside. The asking price is $449,000, down $50,000 from when it was first listed.

749 17th Ave E
Seattle, WA 98112

North of Mercer, things switch pretty abruptly to massive, single-family houses, including this five-bedroom foursquare home on about a quarter acre of land.

The multiple covered porches and leaded glass windows are impressive enough on the outside. Inside, a formal living area with a grand fireplace opens to a formal dining area with French doors, and a large wood-paneled library is lined with a wall full of bookshelves and its own cozy little fireplace. A second formal dining area—yes, a second—is in a sunroom.

With this much going on, the listing price, $3.5 million, shouldn’t be too much of a shock.
