The tour took us from West Seattle to Magnolia to Leschi to Madison Valley,… Read More

Madison Park Mid-Century with Double Lot

1834 Mcgilvra Blvd E - Exterior

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

Eric Cobb’s Madison Park Modern “Masterpiece”

4100 E Highland Dr - Exterior

Live in the Arboretum

1512 Arboretum - Exterior

I really liked this mid-century home that feels like it is situated right in the Arboretum until I saw the front of it. Oh well. Designed by the firm of Elizabeth Ayers and built as the personal residence of noted builder CI Anderson, 1512 Arboretum Pl E, is sizeable at 4,890 square feet with 5… Read More

Isola Home Flip in Madison Park

2032 41st Ave E - Back deck

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.

Seattle’s First Certified Passive House

Park Passive - Exterior

Cascade Built and NK Architects have brought Seattle our first certified passive house. Located in Madison Park, they’re referring to it as “Park Passive”. Sounds pretty cool and looks great too! Construction costs were roughly $200/square foot. Park Passive demonstrates that luxury and sustainability can co-exist. The home’s average indoor air temperature of 70 degrees… Read More

Ultra Contemporary Madison Home is Back


After taking a break from the MLS for two months this $2.88m Madison Park home at 1910 37th Pl E is back! 3,691 square feet. 3 bedrooms. 3 bathrooms. Built 2 years ago, the land (or teardown) sold for $1,231,900 in 2006. Perhaps they’ll have better luck now with many million dollar homes selling in… Read More

Ultra Contemporary Madison Park Home – $2.8m


Wow. $2.88m for this Madison Park home at 1910 37th Pl E. 3,691 square feet. 3 bedrooms. 3 bathrooms. Built 2 years ago, the land (or teardown) sold for $1,231,900 in 2006.

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
