Built in 1912 and designed by Bebb & Gould, when craftmanship was of the upmost importance, this historic Seattle landmark, 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, this special building was converted to condominiums by famed Seattle historic preservation architect Ralph Anderson. If your taste favors the unique, consider this urban classic, never before on the market having passed between friends since Northwest icon Ralph Anderson designed this unit for himself over 40 years ago.
If you enjoy world class cities where being blocks from everything is a way of life, you’ll feel at home here. Situated only blocks from the iconic Pike Place Market, art at SAM, live performances at Benaroya Hall, Showbox, and the Triple Door, living here puts you at the pinnacle of Seattle’s cultural core. Sip your morning coffee at Storyville in the Market overlooking the water. Sit down for lunch at the landmark Virginia Inn. Snag a pre-show cocktail at chic Ben Paris. Grab a dinner bite at long time staple Place Pigalle. Enjoy a live performance. You might very well run into a neighbor, while out and about. This is a typical day in the life of a Downtown dweller.

The dramatic hallway with the original white and black tile floors leads you through the home and is a perfect showcase for that art collection. Unprecedented 15.5-foot ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and classic parquet flooring adorn the parlor. Three sets of French doors open to Juliet balconies letting fresh air waft through the space.
