This is life at 2222 Crescent Drive. Timeless elegance flourishes in this stunning Craftsman on Capitol Hill’s iconic Crescent Drive. Sited well back from the street on its over-sized lot, the home offers grand expanses of green space for outdoor living and entertaining, while offering a welcoming entry through its wraparound front porch. It is poised to capture lush views from three above-ground floors bathed in light.
A masterpiece of vintage architecture and carefully considered updates. Soft white walls compliment the glowing patina of original woodwork. Huge double hung windows and built-in corner banquettes define more intimate spaces. A central staircase anchors the first floor with two branches at the landing.

An expansive foyer leads into a majestic living room with an enormous fireplace, a corner sitting area to its left and a library to the right, with a wall of tansu inspired built-ins for display, while a side door provides secondary access to the wraparound porch.
The octagonal dining room is flooded with natural light through four walls of windows, creating an exquisite sense of connection to the outdoors. A wall of perfectly preserved original built-ins functions as an elegant china cabinet.
With a vast bay window that frames views toward Lake Washington and the Cascades, the kitchen represents a more modern interpretation of the home’s architectural elements. It features beautifully finished custom cabinets, exposed beams, butcher block counters, and handmade floor tiles. An island houses the downdraft gas cooktop and provides casual dining space, while a suite of new, top-of-the-line stainless appliances completes this gourmet hub of the house.
Outside, formal landscaping compliments the home offering room for play, outdoor entertaining, and relaxation. A three-car garage with alley access supports an expansive deck that connects to the house by a herringbone brick patio, while manicured hedges afford a high degree of privacy.
The second floor offers a lavish master suite comprised of three rooms of sublime luxury. Entered through a sitting room with its own fireplace, then to the sleeping area with a second fireplace, this private retreat offers ample space and leads to a bath suite that includes a walk-in shower, vintage soaking tub, water closet, and a double vanity created from an antique sideboard.
Two guest rooms complete the second floor, and oak hardwoods unite both the first and second floors with a seamless expanse of naturally finished wood for warmth and continuity.
The third floor offers two additional rooms and a full vintage bath, connected by a spacious landing. Visually unified by the buttery fir floors, high ceilings, and charming dormered spaces, this area can serve as bedroom space, a vast home office, or casual family area.
