361 Blaine St, Seattle

This Queen Anne Dutch Colonial is currently on the market for the first time since 1952. You can tell this home has only had 2 owners since its construction in 1919. Even though this house has been updated to have all the right quartz, and all the right tile, in all the right places… it’s still easy to fancy what the house was like when it was first built.

By 1919 in Queen Anne the streetcar lines were well established up and down the hill. Subsequently, the Queen Anne neighborhood was growing and that same year the Seattle School District hired Floyd Naramore to design the second John Hay Elementary School. The school would be constructed over the next two years and is now Queen Anne Elementary’s brick building.

While envisioning the Queen Anne neighborhood 100 years ago, you can also imagine that this Dutch Colonial sported a crisp white paint job on day one, just as it does on day 35,770. Given it’s location and proximity to South Lake Union and Queen Anne Ave it’s also easy to conceive of living here.

Sold: This property is no longer available and sold for $1,200,000.
