A breathtaking setting in the heart of the city
Originally built between 1903 and 1905, this house is best known as ‘The Skinner Mansion,’ named for the prominent shipping magnate who lived in it from 1914 until the 1950’s. The 10,000-sq.-ft. house sits on a half-acre lot — one of the largest properties on Capitol Hill. Located on the crest of Capitol Hill, The Skinner Mansion is positioned at highest point overlooking the city and Elliott Bay.
This fine Georgian Revival home is a landmark Seattle residence. It belongs to an elite group of early 20th century grande dames situated on what has long been called ‘Millionaires’ Row’ near Volunteer Park. Painstakingly remodeled between 2000 and 2006, the result is a home that retains its historical integrity while offering a warm, welcoming environment for comfortable 21st century family living. The renovation updated all systems and amenities and was completed with exceptional attention to detail, both inside and out, with interior spaces that flow seamlessly to the beautiful grounds.
