Behold the Starrett House, ‘the Grand Dame’ of Port Townsend, Washington.
This Victorian head-turner is being sold as a ‘turn-key’ B&B business with most of the antique furnishings included!
Priced at $1,500,000, this exquisite home has 11 bedrooms, and 10 bathrooms in 5,796 square feet.
A stunning and rare “free hung” staircase rises 70 feet from ground floor to dome.
The dome features beautiful frescoes of angelic maidens.
Built in 1889 by George Starrett for his wife Ann, this home is a very tangible gesture of love (and wealth).
Each room is rich with saturated color and artistic detail.
There are so many original features intact in this home… the wood floors, the pocket doors, the period light fixtures & hardware, the millwork, trim, and moldings.
The one room that is NOT in original condition, is the kitchen.
Converted to a commercial kitchen to service the bed & breakfast, the kitchen is thoroughly modernized but still charming.
There is also a lovely green pantry room being used as a library:
Have a look at some of the gorgeous bedrooms…
View from the Purple room:
On the very top floor is the owner/innkeeper’s flat.
There are three separate bedrooms on this floor, so the whole family could live up here and help run the historic inn!
Down on the garden level, there is an entirely separate apartment for the in-laws or… additional rental income.
Outside, there are both patio and grassy areas.
This landmark home is prominently situated on a corner lot with a brick foundation and sturdy faux slate roof.
Here’s hoping this Grand Dame finds a wonderful new owner who relishes all her historic character!
