Five years after it last changed hands, West Seattle’s Hainsworth House – a city landmark, at 2657 37th SW, is on the market again (thanks to Fiona for spotting the listing). The 103-year-old, 4-bedroom, 4-bath mansion is listed for $2.25 million. Its significance as an example of “Tudor Revival” architecture is described in the fourth-from-last paragraph on this HistoryLink.org page.

  17. Last time it was on the market we considered buying it. But it needed major renovation. It had a top floor apt of sorts that we could have lived in while the rest of the house could be renovated. We determined it would take some major money to get it to our standards and decided against the purchase. It looks to me that the new owners did an amazing renovation and spent the money and time required. Great job!
