This is a classic Foursquare home with elements of Beaux-Art design throughout. The interior has been modified with gothic arches, iconic columns, and Art Nouveau carvings on the grand staircase and Newell posts. All fireplaces are American art tiles.
Built in 1909, the home was one of five unique granite homes on Queen Anne by enigmatic designers Bebb and Mendell for the Robinson family, who owned a wholesale grain, hay, and feed firm. The home was also the Japanese Consulate before WWII. With multiple curb cuts, a circular driveway, ample off-street parking and a detached garage, this home is unique for ease of parking on Queen Anne Hill. A large front door opens to high boxed ceilings and beautiful, large light-filling windows. All restorations have been faithfully executed by accomplished craftsmen. The parlor walls have been hand-painted to match period wallpaper. Each room and the floors are finished with old-growth, exotic hardwood including Padauk, Narra, White Oak, and Apitong. It can be safely said nothing was missed. Seven large bedrooms and six bathrooms, and a utilitarian farmhouse kitchen round out excellent living spaces. A bar room and exquisite dining room with an original William Morris tapestry make entertaining an event. Downstairs there is a large poolroom/media den with a museum-worthy tile fireplace made by The Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. Boasting a large 12,800 square-foot corner double lot, this home can lend itself admirably to the newly proposed ADU zoning codes and can, if needed, provide excellent income potential.
