Seward Park Modern with Lake Views

I don’t care for the exterior of this brand new modern home in Seward Park (there’s a lot going on and I don’t like seeing the rooftop railing from the street), but the place has views of Lake Washington and is under a million bucks.

5237 S Farrar St is a 4 bedroom, 3.25 bathroom, 2,724 square foot place. Listed at $939,000 they bought the house that was on the lot before for $260,000 in May of 2013.

You can check it out today from noon to 3pm and Sunday from 1 to 4pm.

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.

    Regarding the railing, because we were at the height limit for the house, we had to have a railing with clear panels, that was the compromise. We could not do a solid panel around the top because that would have been considered part of the total height of the house. We wanted to maximize the views by going as high as we could while putting a 800 SF deck on top. So now we have Lake Washington, Andrews Bay, Mt Rainier, Seward Park, Mercer Island and a great territorial view of the neighborhood. The deck is pretty amazing, one of the best in the neighborhood. The house is very nice too. In floor radiant heat throughout, awesome views, great floor plan and loads of storage.

    Brian, thanks for stopping by and giving us the inside scoop! We’d probably have maximized for height too.
