Samuel Hyde House is a building at 3726 East Madison Street in Seattle, Washington, United States listed in the National Register of Historic Places.[5] The building, built in 1909–1910 for liquor magnate Samuel Hyde, now houses the residence of the Russia consul-general.[2][3]

The two-story brick house is fronted by a portico with Corinthian columns; there is a brick carriage house in back. It is believed that the grounds were laid out by the Olmsted Brothers. The Olmsteds played a prominent role in designing Seattle's system of parks and boulevards, and were responsible for landscaping the grounds of the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition on the campus of the University of Washington.[3]
