This 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.

See the full photo gallery below.

Originally built between 1903-1905, this home is best known as the Skinner Mansion, named for the prominent shipping magnate who lived in it from 1914 until the 1950s. The current owners painstakingly remodeled the home and surrounding estate between 2000-2006.

Several living spaces have been reimagined with lighter features for a more modern feel. See more below.

The result is a home that retains its historical integrity while offering a warm, welcoming environment for 21st century living. This renovation updated all systems and amenities, and was completed with exceptional attention to detail. From casual everyday living to formal entertaining…there are rooms here to accommodate everything and everyone!

Embraced by extensive, mature gardens, large bluestone patios and walkways, Tenino stone retaining walls and custom designed fountains…these beloved grounds were completely refurbished in 2005-2006 and have artfully blended formality befitting the home with informal features suited to an active family. There is an ironwood deck off of the kitchen for grilling space with access to a back yard with a fruit and vegetable garden, raised planter boxes for herbs and a cut flower garden.

Discover a look at the formal dining room redesigned to suit a more contemporary aesthetic.

Close to Volunteer Park, eclectic shops and eateries—with a Walk Score of 89—and just minutes to downtown Seattle and the freeways, it’s no surprise that Capitol Hill is among the most sought-after neighborhoods in the Emerald City.
