This is definitely our home of the week. Unfortunately we can only share what we think if you login.

Phinney Ridge 1914 “Contemporary”


It is hard to believe that a home built over a 100 years ago would be called a contemporary but this 1914 home really does look much more contemporary than something built in 1914. Listed at $669k for 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms spread over 2,100 square feet on a 4,300 square foot lot it last… Read More

Seward Park “Astro Turf” Modern


Another house we love in Seward Park just hit the market at 5145 S Willow St. Stylish kitchen, rooftop deck with views of the lake and Mount Rainier, and an interesting taller outdoor gas fireplace on the ground floor level deck.

Striking Bryant New Construction


4703 33rd Ave NE, a brand new home in Bryant, caught out eye. $1.299m for 4 bedrooms, 3.25 bathrooms on a 3,600 square foot lot.

Views from this Magnolia MCM


MCM fans, check out 3010 W Garfield St on the south side of Magnolia for $965k. Needs a bit of updating but looks totally livable in the meantime. Love the views, the fireplaces and that it has a mother-in-law. It is open both this Monday and Tuesday from 11am to 1pm if you want to… Read More

Loft Livn Next to Volunteer Park


From the outside 1508 10th Ave E Unit #404 doesn’t look like a sweet loft, but inside it sure does! Exposed brick, tall ceilings, nice kitchen. It’s like a Pioneer Square loft but next to the quiet serenity of Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill. And as the listing remarks point out, you’re close to Macklemore’s… Read More

Pioneer Square Loft with Views, Brick and Tall Ceilings


Rare to find a true loft in Seattle with 18′ ceilings and tons of exposed brick. Even rarer to find one with views! Which is why we love, 80 S Jackson St, #405 (though you may want to renovate the bathroom). At 1,737 square feet spread over two stories for 2 bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms,… Read More

Two West Seattle Mid-Century View Homes

4700 51st Pl SW_liv

They’re really not modern style, but they are pretty much untouched by the remodeler’s hand.  Both have Open Houses this afternoon, Sunday Dec 7th, 1-4 pm  (I know, late again).  So if you’re not looking for a cookie cutter home, townhouses are too cramped, or most moderns are out of your price range, these homes… Read More
