Vintage Seattle has a cool two-part post on a 1920s mansion undergoing a renovation here on the Hill. It’s a cool view inside an amazing Hill home — also, as the post notes, amazing to consider this place has stood empty in our midst all this time.
The squatters that occasionally get chased out of various empty Hill locations are probably sorry to see this one go off the VACANCY list.
If seeing this incredible home has you thinking, “Wow, I totally need a Capitol Hill mansion,” we have good news for you. The Moore Mansion is for sale.
Got $4.8 million kicking around?
Here’s the broker’s description from the listing:
Situated on Millionaire’s Row, the mansion is a historical landmark with stories to tell. The mansion is listed on Seattle’s Historic Registry and its renovated interior reflects early 20th Century design while incorporating the original French-influenced architecture. Library, separate maid’s and butler’s Quarters (with separate entrance). Guest quarters with a spectacular view of Puget Sound and the Cascades. Enjoy the panoramic view from rooftop deck.
Better, though, is this strange and circular coincidence — a CHS comment on an old post from a man who grew up in that very home:
I was raised on Capital Hill
Very good article and right on the money, I was born on capital Hill at Providence hospital in 1953.I lived at 811 14th ave East by Volunteer Park my Father bought the house in 1952 it was known as millionaire’s row, my mother raised 10 children there and other homes on Capital Hill but we never left the paris. I attended St. Joe’s on 18th and Aloha for 8 years, Father Eckstein was our man in charge.It was a wonderful time in my life.
