About Ian Petry

I have owned and lived in the Harrison Modern since 1997. I have a passion for architecture and interior design, you will see this in every aspect of the building. Originally born in New Zealand, I have traveled the world and the US extensively, I believe that Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet. My back ground is in Tourism Marketing, I worked for the New Zealand Tourism Board in Los Angles for 8 years before moving to Seattle in 1994. I have a love of travel and new experiences - Whenever I away I always stay at vacation apartments, as you get a real feel for the destination you are visiting.

Ian Petry purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Ian Petry chose Central

Seattle is a vibrant city full of amazing sights from world class architecture, vibrant arts scene, to spectacular outdoor activities. Capitol Hill, is the perfect location to explore all Seattle and everything the region has to offer. If you are not traveling outside the city you won't need a car, everything is within an easy walk or a short bus ride. Within 3 short blocks of the building are a a number of great restaurants, shops and cafes, 2 supermarkets and 3 wonderful city parks. Capitol Hill is a rich, diverse, neighborhood with multi million mansions and a wonderful farmers market within blocks of each other. One thing I am sure about... You will love the location. I have done a lot of traveling and believe that Seattle and the Pacific North West is one of the most beautiful, livable, areas in the North America.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, Location, Location... Capitol Hill is the most convenient neighborhood to downtown Seattle. from our building it is a lovely 15-20 minute walk to downtown. The building is super stylish, all the apartments are large and individually furnished in keeping with the mid-century contemporary theme. Comfort, convenience, and style are what you will find when you stay at the Harrison Modern.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent stay in Capital Hill

Thanks to Ian for a great stay, the apartment is wonderfully located, well-appointed, and comfortable. We liked the mid-century feel and ease of everything, even providing dishwasher and washing machine soap for your use. We'd stay there again!

Great location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this property for 17 days with my family and it was a great choice. Location is just perfect, close to Lync and main downtown buses. We could easly walk downtown as well. The two parks nearby helped entertaining my son of two years. Besides, the house is very comfortable and clean, nice space, great backyard with barbecue and quiet in the evening. Only item for improvement would be the wood noise in the floor, specially if there is a neighbor upstairs. I strongly recommend this property.

We only stayed one night in the apartment, which was very spacious clean and bright with everything we needed.

Ian was very helpful with our requests and always replied very quickly.

The apartment was in a very convenient neighbourhood with shops and public transport nearby.
