I have owned and lived in the Harrison Modern since 1995. 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 1995

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.

Location, Location, Location... Capitol Hill is the most convenient neighborhood to downtown Seattle. from our building it is a lovely 15 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.

Harrison Modern-an oasis on Capitol Hill

My whole experience at Harrison Modern was perfect. Harrison Modern is an unexpected building in the heart of Capitol Hill. It is a perfect location. It is just 3 blocks east of the energy of Broadway with some of the best restaurants and one of the best independent film theatres in town. It is also just 3 blocks west of the quieter area of 15th Ave that offers the best independent video rentals in town! Volunteer Park, the jewel of Seattle is just to the north. The bus for other parts of Seattle is just 2 blocks south.

The unit I stayed in was perfect. The owner is prompt, well organized and considerate. My unit, a spacious one bedroom, was bright, airy, quiet, and immaculate. It is equipped with all the comforts of home including comfy furniture, great AV equipment, open kitchen and even parking! The décor is modern with flair. I walked in and felt right at home. The views of the downtown and the Olympics, and a huge deck were bonuses! I just didn’t want to leave!

I recently took my parents to Seattle for a vacation, and after considering several options for housing we ran across the "Harrison Modern" although skeptical at first, I must say it was an awesome choice, we enjoyed our stay, it is an awesome neighborhood and everything we needed was within a few blocks. We rented a car but really if your only exploring the city it is not neccessary, bus stops within blocks of the apartment would get you anywhere you needed to go, We enjoyed the stay very much and having a nice place to call home for the week made it even better! We will definelty be back!

We (me, my husband, 9 year old and 4 year old) stayed here when my littlest had some appointments at Seattle Children's Hospital. The apartment was clean, classy, cozy and close to everywhere we needed to go. We definitely will stay again when we are back in Seattle yearly.

Dear Ian,

We absolutely adore the Harrison Modern. Truly a
remarkable gem of Seattle. The bed was amazing,
the apartment so stylish, and the location perfect.

Thank you once again for allowing us to celebrate
my sister's 24th at your place. We may be back
again (hopefully in an apartment of our own).

Cheers to the new year---

We had the lovely opportunity to stay in unit 1117 (the penthouse)for two weeks in the middle of October. We felt right at home. Unit was very clean, everything was in good working order. We cooked several meals during our stay and even did some baking. The kitchen was well equipped and user friendly. We enjoyed several sunsets from the living room and deck. Even using the gas BBQ on a few occasions. Very convient to several markets, Trader Joe's, Farmer's Market on Sundays, and of course wonderful shops and restaurants. Buses close by (a bit tricky to get used to)that can take you anywhere you want to go. We Loved the area as well and would definately stay again. Thank you Ian

When my daughter who is a Freshman at Seattle University and I first walked into the apartment, she commented, "I could live in this apartment"! We felt right at home immediately. Thank you for all the comforts of home. We will return on our next visit.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Harrison Modern the third weekend of July,2009. The apartment itself was lovely AND immaculate. (no worries about bedbugs here!) The location was close to groceries, restaurants and the like, and we walked back and forth to the Pike Place Market. It was hot when we were there, none the less the trek was walkable. There are some fun places along the way and as always, Seattle is beautiful. I would indeed stay here again. In the future with all the climate changes, air conditioning would be an added plus to make this place completely perfect.
