Tour an Eric Cobb Madison Park Modern

This Sunday from noon to 3pm Northwest Home and AIA Seattle bring us an open house at 4100 E Highland Drive (the home is not for sale!). The home designed by Eric Cobb looks right up our alley.

Architect Eric Cobb’s design for this new Madison Park dwelling plays off the layered look of its corner neighbor—a midcentury modern house designed by famed Seattle architect Roland Terry (look at photo’s far right)—while making its own distinctly this-century modern statement.

The home features a custom jungle gym, cat passageways and lots of other neat features. Check out all the photos.

Built for $455 square foot Northwest Home has all the details.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    Really nice.

    Zillow shows the last sale price at 1,100,000 (Dec 2009), so the build price would be $121/sq ft. If that’s correct, they did an excellent job for the money.

    Zillow still has photos of the old house. Bird’s Eye and Street View show the construction of the new.

    Whoops. The build price was $455/sq ft. Still a nice house. Though I’m cheap and would find a way to cut the build price, like using a service like .
