Playhouse Designed Modern Close to the Arboretum

This modern home, 751 26th Ave E, by the Playhouse Design Group has already racked up a lot of favorites on Redfin, 68 and counting.

Priced at $839k you get 3 beds, 2.5 baths, 2,622 square feet.

What do people think about bathrooms without doors on the shower. Weird, no?

Here’s what a Redfin agent who toured it had to say:

Large spacious single car garage. Lower level office room seems a bit cramped. Main floor in well lit and open floor plan, second level hosts two bedrooms, large laundry facility, and full bath. Third floor is master suite with enormous shower and very large walk-in closet. Decent views from master suite as well.

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.

    I think the open shower is actually a pretty cool concept. Might get kind of cold in the winter though…

    A two-car garage would make it even more awesome!
