Vintage Homes

Since the late 1880’s, five generations of Susan’s family have called Seattle home. Her great-grandparents moved to Alki point in 1901. Her family still lives on Alki beach today creating a family legacy lasting over 109 years. 

Susan has a passion for architecture, interior design and remodeling. She has consulted numerous sellers on best-use designs for their homes to be sold that include updated floor plans, removing walls to create open concept living spaces, kitchen and bath updates and current buyer color trend preferences when listing. 

Susan has flipped four of her own properties including: a 1918 Bungalow, a 1906 Craftsman, and a 1960 mid-century ranch style home. Her biggest endeavor was in 2005 when she undertook a “Rehab Addict” project of a 1901 three story log structure built as a hotel named Seaview Hall. The project was a full-scale historic restoration which preserved a local landmark from demolition. Because of her experience with historic homes and restoration, Susan has developed relationships with local artisan tradespeople who specialize in era-specific renovations. She has connections to local historical societies and volunteers her time promoting preservation and restoration. If you have a passion for older, historic, or era-specific homes, Susan can help you find a historic home that may be already renovated or ready for a passionate rescue. Contact her for details!

Telling Seattleā€™s Story

Historic homes and love of architecture is in Susan’s blood. 

Her great-great uncle was one of Seattle’s most prominent early architects: Arthur Loveless (1873-1971) 

He designed over 100 residences and commercial buildings creating a lasting design impact in nearly every Seattle neighborhood. His most well- known building is the Loveless building located on Capitol Hill. It was originally design as an artist’s co-op with art studios on the street level and artist apartments above for a work-live co-op. Today it has retail and restaurants on the street level and through the courtyard is access to 10 charming apartments. He also designed 7 sorority and fraternities at UW, more than any other architect which includes houses Zeta-Psi and Beta Theta Pi Fraternities, and Delta Gamma sorority. 

Loveless designed stately homes for prominent residents such as Dexter Horton, the Pantages family, and Lawrence Colman who also hired him to design Colman pool at water’s edge in Lincoln Park where generations have cherished swimming and and continue to use today. 

Susan is currently working on a coffee table style book project that includes a catalog of his work featuring current photos of over 35 homes.
