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.

We truly feel like we're at home when we stay at Harrison Modern. It's so wonderful, easy and centrally located to great shopping and restaurants - Even downtown is a nice walk! We have stayed in 1115, 1117 and this time 1113 - Next visit is for 1111. We've loved them all!

Great location - great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment in great location. My friend slept in the bedroom and I slept on the pull out couch which was very comfortable. We ate some meals in the apartment and kitchen had everything we needed. Decorating was very cool - mid century modern. Will definitely return.

Good value, could use some updates

  • 3 of 5

This location was a good home base for being able to explore a lot of different neighborhoods in Seattle. As others have noted there are many bars, restaurants and other attractions in a short walking distance. The apartment itself felt worn and could use a few basic updates - new towels and bathmats, a window AC in the bedroom (it was in the mid 80's when we were there and got pretty toasty int the unit}, new portable fans (the ones in the unit were completely encrusted in dust making them unusable). Also, I'm surprised other reviewers didn't mention this but was a lot of street noise at night so we ended up buying earplugs the second night to be able to sleep with the widows open.

We weren't there to hang out in the unit so everything was fine for our purposes and the price was good for the time of year we visited.

clean, well kept, convenient

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was very convenient to public transportation and close enough to walk to several area attractions. Ian was very kind and helpful. My one and only complaint would be that the pots and pans need an upgrade to stainless steel. Many of them were scratched and not safe to use at this point. I would highly recommend this condo for anyone coming to the seattle area.
