Arthaus ArtHaus is a nine-unit boutique condominium conversion located in Capitol Hill, one block south of Volunteer Park. The nine homes include studio, one bedroom and two bedroom floor plans. Four of them are sold. The remaining homes are one bedroom's ranging from 578 to 677 square feet and one large two bedroom on the top floor with square footage of 1,368. Prices for these homes range from $280,000 to $320,000 for the one bedroom and $680,000's for the two bedroom.

Interior of the homes feature 8.5' ceilings, 16" crown molding (living room), original millwork, original wood floors, tile floorings in the kitchen, stainless appliances, slab granite countertops and mahogany cabinets. Storage and parking are also included. The building is also equipped with Wi-Fi for all owners. The developer has also done some extensive work to convert this 1927 building including re-tuck pointing of the brick exterior, new roof, windows, eletrical and plumbing work.

The homes have a functional layout with the living room seperated from the kitchen and bedroom. Each space is well defined yet does not feel chopped up and narrow. The only drawback for a couple of the homes is the small bedroom closets. Half of the space is taken up by the ensuite washer and dryer. The only other space you could probably store personal items will be the large walk in closet in the living room which will probably also be used as a coat closet, storage or small office space.

How does Arthaus compare to McKean in Queen Anne? Both are built around the same time with almost the same number of homes.

Location: One thing about Arthaus, it is close to a park and walking distance to Broadway where you can find almost everything you need. McKean location is a little more ways out from all the conveniences.

View: McKean has more homes with some type of neighborhood or water view which Arthaus lacks. 

Finishes: The finishes in McKean are more contemporary whereas ArtHaus is more traditional.

Space: McKean floor plans are much larger than ArtHaus, however, their bathrooms are smaller than ArtHaus. McKean homes come with gas cooking; ArtHaus has electric cooking.

Amenities: ArtHaus has a movie room with a collection movies that residents can watch on the 42 inch plasma TV. In the case of McKean, there is a garden right in front of the building.   

Overall, if you like the idea of an intimate building on a quiet street, ArtHaus is worth a look.
