Located at the center of Seattle’s 534-acre Discovery Park, commanding unparalleled views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, Fort Lawton’s natural beauty and serene atmosphere create an unrivaled living experience. 

In 1896 Ambrose Kiehl, a civil engineer, photographer, musician and family man from Port Townsend was hired by the Army to survey and clear the new Fort Lawton site and supervise the construction of its buildings—including The Ambrose. 

The Ambrose features a generous front porch and formal living and dining rooms. The kitchen adjoins the rear porch, and the basement and attic include extra living and storage space. Thoughtfully renovated spaces that retain the home’s classic charm, enviable kitchen, and baths with modern systems for today’s living, and hardwood flooring throughout the main floor.
