Over Half an Acre in Eastlake

Here’s your chance to play developer. Though at $5m for 0.64 acres this is hardly play money!

A stone’s throw from Pete’s Market and the water it… Read More

Bryant New Construction with a View

Two years ago we rarely blogged about Bryant or Wedgwood. This year, seems like everyday we’re blogging about a new modern place.

Washington Park Contemporary

529 36th Ave E is a light filled contemporary in Washington Park.

New Modern Home in Ravenna

Here’s a “new” modern home in Ravenna. 7022 29th Ave NE was originally built in 1950 but I’m hard pressed to see any evidence of 1950 left! It looks like it has had a massive renovation since being acquired off market last spring for $435k. It is now 3,850 square feet and has 4 bedrooms… Read More
