HISTORY
Built in 1890, this shingle style Dutch Colonial Revival is one of the oldest homes on Prospect Hill. The neighborhood was initially known as “Little Germany”, in part because many of its early residents were of German descent and in part because of its winding roads and hillside topography. The house was built for Brigadier General Luther Bradley and his wife Marcia with a neighboring residence at 21 N. Summit Rd built for Mrs. Bradley's sister, Mrs. Helen Rogers. The two homes were initially connected to one another but were eventually separated. General Bradley was born in New Haven, CT in 1822 and fought for the Union during the Civil War, entering service in 1861 as a Lieutenant Colonel and becoming a Brigadier General in 1864. During the Civil War, Bradley fought and was wounded in the capture of Island No. 10 near New Madrid, Missouri on the Mississippi River. After the Civil War, Bradley continued to serve in the military in Wyoming, Kansas and New Mexico. He retired in 1886 and moved to Tacoma with his wife and her sister. Bradley died in 1910 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

PROPERTY
Beautifully sited high on Prospect Hill with impressive views of Commencement Bay and Mount Rainier, this historically significant home offers a number of architectural elements consistent with the period of its construction, including an original wood shingle exterior, leaded and stained glass windows, vintage hardware, refinished quarter-sawn oak floors and custom mill work. The gracious entry hall leads to a large formal living room with a gas fireplace, custom built-in bookshelves and direct access to a large wrap around veranda with water views. A butler's pantry with ample storage connects the formal dining room to the eat-in kitchen, which has been thoughtfully updated with a central island, slate counters, custom fir cabinets, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Wolf 6 burner range with double oven, a Miele dishwasher, a Miele coffee maker and a built-in banquette. A mud room off the kitchen leads to a large side patio and barbecue area. Five bedrooms and two bathrooms are located on the second floor, including a master suite with water views. One bedroom is currently used as a family room and another as a home office. The hall bathroom has been tastefully updated with a glass enclosed tub and shower and dual sink Carrara marble-topped vanity. A large attic accessible by stairs could easily be finished for additional living space. A comfortable family room with a gas fireplace, bar area and Brunswick pool table is located on the lower level along with a climate controlled wine room, a 3/4 bath and a large laundry room with custom built-in cabinets. The grounds include a circular driveway with a porte cochere, a two car garage off the street below, an in-ground hot tub and a sprinkler system.
