Have you ever wanted to own one of those picturesque victorian homes straight out of your favorite period piece? Now you can, because one of the most pivotal Victorian homes in Port Townsend is for sale. Not only that, but it’s more affordable than you might think.
Let’s have a look!
The Starrett House, aka ‘the Grand Dame’, was built in 1889 by George Starrett for his wife Ann. Now, we all know that chivalry is mostly dead, so it’s unlikely that you’ll find a man these days willing to build you an 11 bedroom, 10 bathroom, 5,796 sq ft house. But hey, at least you can buy one for $1.5 million!
Yep, this massive house costs about the same as a regular old house in Seattle, and here you get the added benefit of being in Port Townsend. To make this property even more unique, it’s a turn-key B&B. So you can buy it, furniture and all, and get straight to businesses with your new venture. Or you could always return it to your own private 11-bedroom residence. Really whatever floats your boat here.
The home is located close to downtown, shopping, library & beaches. Despite its age, it has a time-tested brick foundation & sturdy faux slate roof. Plus it has some unique architectural features like a rare free hung 70-foot staircase, exquisite woodwork, painted high ceilings, period light fixtures & hardware.
How could you not want this home? If you end up purchasing this gem and opening your own B&B in 2023 we are requesting a stay. You can view more through Windermere.
