Madison Park Mid-Century Living, Re-Imagined

We’ve enjoyed a few parties in this amazing home at 2236 38th Place E built in 1960 and totally re-imagined in 2010. It is hard to believe it has been six years since their remodel though. It looks practically brand new. Listed at just shy of $2m this home is 3,050 square feet and has… Read More

Madison Park Mid-Century with Double Lot

I can’t believe the $1.25m price tag on 1834 McGilvra Blvd E. It is a rather unassuming 1,870 square foot home built in 1945 in need of a remodel. I guess the value is all in the 8,000 square foot lot! Open this Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4pm if you want to check… Read More

Isola Home Flip in Madison Park

I like this Isola Home resale at 2032 41st Ave E. But you’ll need to look past the questionable interior decorating. This home originally hit the market back in 2012 for $1.6m eventually selling in March of this year for $1.4m. And now they’re hoping to flip it for $1.52m.

Barrel Roof in Madison Park

With the number of nice houses I post about in Madison Park (versus Capitol Hill) something makes me think when it comes time to ditch our loft we’ll be moving off the Hill…. Anyhow, the barrel roof at 1423 McGilvra Blvd E caught my eye last week. 18′ ceilings, big garage, 3 beds, 2.5 baths,… Read More
