This 1930s Mediterranean villa with a view of Seattle’s Lake Union could be yours for $3.3M

Perched atop Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, the home at 2000 Taylor Avenue North stands out from its neighbors. Its style — a restored and updated 1930s Mediterranean villa — is unique, and the half-an-acre plot it sits on is noteworthy in itself. This home is on the market for $3.3 million. 

The 2,560-square-foot home is positioned in a way so that nearly every window offers views of Lake Union, the Seattle skyline and the Cascade Mountains.

There are two levels, both facing the lake.

Compass Realtor Stephanie McRae, who co-listed the property with Katie Cahill, told the Seattle P-I that renovations were always meant to honor the home’s historical heritage by “perfectly balancing its modern updates with picturesque details such as original oak floors, a Juliette balcony and French doors.”  

“The architecture has a way of bringing the outside in, creating a seamless integration of its surroundings,” McRae added. 

The home is 1930s, but this kitchen with the modern chef's needs met, is all 2022.

The windows in this four bedroom and two-and-a-half bathroom home make the sweeping, postcard-ready views of water, city and mountain seem like they’re part of the house’s interior.

The exterior design encourages dining and lounging in style.

There’s also a .37-acre lot of terraced, landscaped beauty, with a lot of space for taking in that view, whether it’s from the garden, lawn, patio, terrace or fire pit.
