1894 Victorian

William H. Thompson House

Gracious Queen Anne Victorian
Gracious Queen Anne Victorian
Built by Ernest A. MacKay, a prosperous citizen of Seattle, this gorgeous Queen Anne, with its three-story turret, was purchased by William H. Thompson in 1897. Thompson, a man noted for his oratory skills and literary writings, lived in the home until 1927. At one time, before conversion back to a single-family residence, the home served as a boarding house, and local rumor has it that Jack Benny's mother lived in the home at that time. This grand old lady embraces you with details evocative of a gentler age. Yet the updated systems, gourmet kitchen, added bathrooms, and energy-efficient heating mean you benefit from today's conveniences as well. Lake and mountain views, wrap-around porches, a peaceful courtyard all add up to a home made for family gatherings and gracious day-to-day living.

Parlor with Turret

Cozy up to one of the home's two vintage fireplaces. And what better place for a holiday tree than in a turret surrounded by windows? You'll find many spaces large enough for spending time with family and friends, and many a nook to hide-away for some private time.
