About the home

Coveted as one of Seattle’s finest properties the Eckstein Estate is sited on what was historically known as “Millionaire’s Row”, the two blocks of 14th Avenue East leading to the south entrance of Volunteer Park. Sited on three city lots this classic Georgian Revival house was designed by Louis Mendel in 1914 for Nathan Eckstein, a prominent Seattle business leader and highly regarded philanthropist. The home features incredible period details such as a stunning mosaic tile fireplace created by Louis Comfort Tiffany. 

The estate’s present owners have meticulously and completely updated the home while maintaining its original period charm and details. The stunning remodeled and expanded kitchen and beautifully designed stone and marble baths blend seamlessly with the handsome woodwork and period moldings. A new master suite, guest apartment, multiple indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces and the spacious en suite guest bedrooms offer the ultimate in urban living. All systems have been updated to top of the line and state of the art levels. No detail of this impeccable restoration was overlooked creating a rare in-city estate offering the ultimate in today’s amenities.

Capitol Hill is home to many of the city’s most historic and architecturally impressive homes, many designed and built in the early 1900’s.  Capitol Hill boasts an incredibly strong sense of neighborhood and community.  Many of the homeowners who have purchased the old “Seattle Boxes” as some of the architecture is called, have restored them to their original grandeur while adding modern appliances, fixtures and lighting reflecting a style of yesteryear.  North Capitol Hill is noted as one of the city’s best places for Halloween trick or treating with some homes greeting over a thousand trick or treaters each year!  The neighborhoods décor and displays at Halloween and the holidays are some of the most impressive in any city.

Volunteer Park, between 15th and Federal on North Capitol Hill, includes a play area, a conservatory, a 108-step brick water tower with one of the best views of the city and region, and the Seattle Asian Art Museum. Capitol Hill is also home to some of Seattle’s best restaurants.
