Why this Capitol Hill home is the dreamiest spot for Seattle summer

Regardless of whether you're a native Seattleite or freshly transplanted, the transition from rainy season to warm, dry season means a big shift in how we enjoy our city. We take every opportunity to be outside, choosing outdoor patios, visiting local parks (especially ones with big views!), we gobble up local produce, and attend barbecues with reckless abandon.

What if you could enjoy all of these activities without ever leaving your home?

Behold, the Skinner Mansion. This stunning, 10,000-sq.-ft. house is positioned on the crest of Capitol Hill, providing phenomenal views from the highest point overlooking the city and Elliott Bay.

A toast to summer!

Game room goals!
This spectacular media/billiards room with a built-in Dolby sound system has the feel of an English gentlemen’s club. Custom cabinetry conceals a 70ꞌ screen. Bar with a long granite-topped counter is equipped with an icemaker, refrigerator and keg on tap.

An exquisite kitchen.
The kitchen enjoys lovely western vistas, while top-notch appliances include a paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator and a stainless steel 6-burner gas range with griddle and two ovens, warming drawer and dishwasher – all by Viking.
