Welcome home to Fischer Studio #801
Built in 1912 and designed by Bebb & Gould, when craftsmanship was of the utmost importance, this historic Seattle landmark, the Fischer Studio Building, gives you the opportunity to own a truly unique piece of history.
Eight grotesques stand guard over a classic structure of concrete and steel cladded in beautiful terra cotta with noteworthy Venetian-inspired architectural character.
Built as music studios with a concert hall and housing for performance artists and teachers, it was converted to condos by famed Seattle historic preservation architect Ralph Anderson. If your taste favors the unique, consider this urban classic, never before listed on the market having passed between friends since Anderson designed this unit for himself over 40 years ago.
If you crave the luxury of space and design freedom in a creative urban environment, this one-of-a kind place will call to you. Its 2,800 square feet live like a New York flat and encompass most of Fischer’s top floor. And, as a penthouse home, you have the opportunity to create a private rooftop deck, an unheard-of benefit.
Great room walls feature five sets of impressive French doors with Juliet balconies that provide room for plants and allow fresh air to waft through the space. The den is moody, cozy, and intimate. A party-sized dining room rises to every occasion for great entertainment opportunities. The adjoining sunroom is the perfect spot for summer dinners or lounging with the morning paper. If you’re looking for a home to host unforgettable celebrations, galas, fundraisers and parties, this place has done it all and will inspire you.
Only blocks from Seattle’s finest restaurants, this home also gives you the option to create your own feasts. Everything you need is here, including a commercial four-burner induction cooktop with separate built-in induction wok, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, double Miele ovens, and custom floor-to-ceiling wood cabinetry with custom pull-outs to reach an incredible amount of storage space.
Home for your collections
If you’re looking for a home for your collections, its strong modern lines, architectural details and soaring ceilings provide a backdrop equal to any gallery.
The dramatic central hallway with original white and black tile floors leads through the home and opens onto the great rooms. This showcase space features unprecedented 15.5-foot ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and classic parquet flooring.
Sleeping quarters feature two spacious ensuite bedrooms plus an additional bedroom and powder room.
The main bedroom suite boasts more custom cabinetry, a walk-in closet and spa bath with washlet toilet and chromatherapy soaking tub.
The second suite lives like a studio space, perfect for guests, a live-in nanny, family member or would serve well as a media room or office, as it contains a small kitchenette, walk-in closet and full bathroom plus a loft space.
The third bedroom was used as an office and still contains a built-in desk added by Ralph Anderson. A separate laundry and utility room with deep sink provides more storage and the space necessary to serve your household needs.
