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 Capitol Hill

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.

Seattle stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this unit which is part of a 4 plex. It is an older building probably dating back to 50s or 60s. Quite a bit of the interiors are the original ie floors, kitchen, Windows, doors. The furnishings are also reminiscent of the time giving it a retro feel. The furniture is comfortable although my husband felt maybe the bed was too soft. The laundry facilities are very nice. The unit sits on a busy road and the noise level can be loud. We did need ear plugs at night. The neighborhood felt very safe. Downtown is easily walkable down maybe uber back.

The Capitol Hill neighborhood was good.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We love mid-century modern architecture as you can tell. The building was designed in 1951 by a prominent Seattle architect, Victor C Martin, there have been several updates to the building and this apartment: Double glazing was added in 1995, the hardwood floors and kitchen counter-tops were redone in 2005 and the bathroom remodeled in 2007. We have gone to great lengths to ensure the work carried out retains the buildings unique mid-century charm.

Walker's paradise

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I are "over 65" and found everything an easy walk downhill to get to from the apartment. Bus service was handy and inexpensive when going uphill got to be too much. Neighborhood restaurants and stores were very close and good. We appreciated all the information Ian supplied about the area. Tom was accessible and helpful when we couldn't figure out the TV. Very roomy, attractive apartment.

Quiet Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd stay at the Harrison Modern. What a wonderful place to stay. It's very close to Seattle downtown & yet very quiet at night when you're wanting to wind down. It's a short walk to food & shopping on Broadway should you elect not to drive. I've rented hotels, condo's, and other VRBO's when I have visited Seattle in the past. This one if by far the best.

excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Harrison Modern is a great apartment for people who are seeking convenient location. Good c/p value. Housekeeper, Tom, has been very helpful. House owner, Ian, is flexible enough to let us have a late check-out. Good services.

Superior Accommodations and Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I discovered that the Harrison Modern was a 5 minute walk from my daughter's tiny apartment in Capitol Hill so decided to book there during our visit to Seattle. We fully enjoyed our stay and in fact we all watched the Superbowl there since it was more spacious and comfortable for 4 people than my daughter's place. Ian was extremely responsive and willing to be flexible regarding a possible early check-in. He also expediciously arranged for my daughter to pick up some items that were inadvertently left behind. I would definitely consider booking again our next visit to Seattle at the Harrision Modern!

We would do it again!

  • 4 of 5

Clean, neat and well maintained. Easy access even with midnight arrival. It felt like being home except the bed was dreamier than mine. I'm a bed snob, I've bought many trying to get one this comfortable and this one was so comfortable we almost didn't notice the traffic noise on the busy busy corner. I would recommend a luggage rack in the bedroom for those of us who don't unpack into a dresser, otherwise fantastic place and we will stay here again.
