Look Inside the Historic Homes on Officer’s Row

It’s not often you find a property that has it all, but the newly debuted homes on Fort Lawton’s Officer’s Row would probably leave even the pickiest people on House Hunters at a loss for complaints.

If you’re in the market for a new home, you’ll love the perks and amenities listed below. Even if you’re not in the market, you can still stop by the open house this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (March 3-5) from 11 am – 5 pm to take in the beauty of these skillfully restored gems.

The perfect balance of city life and natural beauty

The homes on Officer’s Row are within the center of Seattle’s 534-acre Discovery Park. The crown jewel of Seattle’s extensive park system, Discovery Park is home to rolling fields and lawns, driftwood-strewn beaches, verdant hiking trails and quiet streams.

If you work in the city but often feel the need to escape the hustle and bustle (and really, don’t we all?), living on Officer’s Row is like going home to your own private retreat every evening.

A close-knit community

Since Officer’s Row is an enclave of only 26 houses, it affords residents privacy and an opportunity to form meaningful connections with neighbors. It can be overwhelming to try to forge connections in the city, but the manageable size of the Officer’s Row neighborhood facilitates easy friendships.

Separation, not isolation

Peace and quiet in the heart of the city sounds like an impossibility, but it’s a reality at Officer’s Row. These homes are only 5 miles from the Space Needle, Amazon’s campus and other world-class Seattle businesses and organizations. Whether you’re commuting to work or volunteering your time with a local nonprofit, you won’t have far to go.

A Magnolia address

The enclave is within Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood, known for its charming shops, unique restaurants, exceptional schools and upscale yet relaxed vibe.

An admirable blend of historic charm and modern convenience

“Cookie cutter” homes don’t exactly ignite the imagination, but anyone who’s lived in a historic home can tell you that it isn’t always charming. Often, interior systems aren’t up to contemporary codes and repairs can be costly adventures.

The homes on Officer’s Row have been meticulously restored to afford residents every convenience without marring the structures’ unique character. Enjoy completely new plumbing and electrical systems, enviable new baths and kitchens with Miele appliances, quartz countertops, and other modern touches that live harmoniously within their historic surroundings.
