With its iconic Craftsman Foursquare architecture, stunningly remodeled interior spaces, lush gardens and guest house on a separate tax lot, 1252 16th Ave E is the ultimate expression of connected Capitol Hill living. The house is located on the corner of 16th Ave E and E Galer St, placing it only a block away from Volunteer Park, and within an easy walk of the shopping, dining and night life along 15th Ave E. Its timeless décor and exceptional craftsmanship help it stand out as a gem on an idyllic tree-lined street of historic properties. Its deep, full-width front porch gives plenty of room for outdoor enjoyment, while also serving as a gracious, sheltering entry to the main house. Once inside the home, its high ceilings and wide expanses of glass lend it an exceptional sense of volume and space that pervades every room. The main floor is elegantly and conveniently arranged around a circular plan that includes a large living room at the front of the house that leads into a long dining room and through to a spacious dine-in gourmet kitchen across the back. Upstairs, three spacious bedrooms share a large and luxurious bath, all arrayed around a huge landing that can easily function as an additional living space. Walk-in closets provide plenty of storage. The lower level of the house is a spectacular re-envisioning of the former basement space. The subject of a recent, cost-no-object remodel, it now functions as a completely finished, seismically retrofitted and conditioned third level of the home, with full-height ceilings, recessed lighting and luxurious radiant heated floors throughout. Finally, a charming 425 square foot guest cottage occupies a subdivided area with its own unique tax parcel and address just above the garage. This original shingled structure has been updated and remodeled to provide comfortable, autonomous living space with all modern comforts and conveniences, including a galley kitchen, full bath and vaulted ceilings with skylights.The whole property has received loving care and thoughtful upgrades throughout the years. This house is in meticulous condition, ready for next hundred years of enjoyment. Timeless Craftsman architecture meets 21st century luxury and convenience in a home that couples enveloping history and warmth with sophisticated urban design. The chance to acquire both the main home and a delightful second residence makes this an investment proposition of rare opportunity.
