10 Tudor Revival homes for sale in Seattle right now

Pitched roofs, half-timbering, and brickwork for days

View as Map

In 1920s Seattle, it may have been a different time and place, with historic revival styles dominating home construction. One of the most prolific of these was the Tudor Revival, featuring a grab bag of high roof peaks, half-timbering, leaded-glass windows, ornate brickwork, and archways. The effect is not unlike a building in a medieval village, and Seattle couldn’t get enough of it. Builders like Fred Anhalt jumped on the trend, constructing elaborate homes and buildings throughout the Emerald City.

Renewed interest in the style started in the early 1900s, though, giving us such notable Seattle landmarks as the Stimson-Green Mansion in 1901 and what’s now the Episcopal Diocesan offices in 1905.

But leading up to the Great Depression, Seattle construction exploded—and while construction had decreased 95 percent by 1932, we got a whole lot of elaborate Tudor houses added before the collapse (and, eventually, building trends that favored less busy construction).

Here are 10 notable Tudor Revival houses currently for sale.

Map points are ordered north to south.

6228 East Green Lake Way N

This three-bedroom Tudor Revival in Green Lake was the home of beloved Seattle artist Sheila Newman, and it’s bursting with its original personality, including artsy attention to detail. In the living room, stained-glass and leaded-glass windows are functional decor in the walls and cabinets, surrounding a classic tile fireplace. Deco-inspired archways connect the “Revival” to the “Tudor.” It’s on the market for $1.63 million.

4826 NE 41st Street

Featuring both a cute exterior brick pattern, half-timbered elements, an arched front door, and the original leaded glass, this Laurelhurst four-bedroom has a little bit of everything Tudor Revival. Inside, this continues, including a tile-lined fireplace and a cased opening full of both arches and some patterned leaded glass. Modern upgrades include a lofted bedroom and a finished basement. It’s on the market for $1.55 million.

In Laurelhurst, the Tudor homes can veer toward the more large and luxurious—and this one is certainly no exception. This home has at least three fireplaces of different sizes and materials, a sauna, and a huge, wraparound deck. Outside, it’s almost daunting, with an L-shaped design that make it look like more of a denser part of a 16th-century village, not a single-family home. It has some cute details on the inside, though, like a beadboard-lined attic room and rounded, built-in shelves. It’s asking $3.25 million.

3011 W Viewmont Way W

This 1930 four-bedroom home in Magnolia features a brickwork pattern on the outside with alternating colors and trim around the arched windows. Hop inside for all the hallmarks of a typical area Tudor Revival, including a fireplace protruding from the wall, deeply coved ceilings, and archways separating the gathering spaces. While there’s been some modernization, a lot of the original features, like built-ins, remain. It’s asking $1.3 million.

2223 E Lake Washington Boulevard

Copy Link

This Montlake two-bedroom house defies the convention, with a whimsical, rounded roof instead of the traditional peak. Still, the interior is classic Tudor, filled with archways, coved ceilings, leaded glass, and the iconic fireplace. Vaulted ceilings upstairs add a nice touch, including a room nestled right in the roof peak with built-in drawers. It’s asking $829,000.

2570 Magnolia Boulevard W

Copy Link

This super-luxurious—and incredibly massive—Tudor estate overlooking the water in Magnolia features a home theater and an in-ground pool. Multiple decks include one off the master, and the home has no shortage of formal gathering spaces (including a couple with ornate fireplaces). At $4.45 million, this one doesn’t come cheap.

1925 E Miller Street

Denser Tudor options are typically limited to Fred Anhalt buildings, but this three-bedroom Montlake townhouse provides another option, with all the trappings of a Tudor house in a thinner, shared package. The fireplace is even a little more ornate than some homes on this list, with tilework surrounding it. Mahogany trim and leaded glass maintain the historic look. It also has a pretty robust yard for a townhouse, including a red-brick patio. The asking price is $900,000.

1821 23rd Avenue E

Also in Montlake, this three-bedroom house has a cute, low-key exterior, with blue siding and just a touch of storybook trim—plus the characteristic roof peaks. Inside, the iconic Tudor fireplace is wide with a small mantle, and original woodwork, including around the leaded-glass windows, adds warmth. It’s listed for $1.29 million.

2502 41st Avenue SW

Whimisical brickwork make this North Admiral house stand out. Inside, period details include a tile fireplace, a clawfoot tub, and leaded glass. A finished attic includes some more modern skylights. It’s asking $950,000.

5525 S Frontenac St

Copy Link

The biggest and fanciest home on this list is a Seward Park manse, listed for a whopping $8.49 million. Imposing size aside, it’s elaborate from the jump, with a many-gabled design and brick-lined archways. Leaded glass windows are maintained throughout, including doors in the cabinetry. While the main house of the state was built right at the height of Seattle’s historic revival craze, a matching, Tudor-inspired carriage house—still bigger than many just regular ol’ houses—was added in 2012. Nearly two acres of garden lead down to 174 feet of Lake Washington waterfront.
