Wood Beams & Stone – 2 Affordable Midcentury Contemporarys
Almost forgot the brick and walls of glass. One is on a double lot and the other has over half an acre. The only thing is, they are both in north northeast Seattle, one in the part called Shoreline.
1561 NE 196th St, Shoreline, is impressive enough to make our shortlist. Listing for $374,500, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,440 square foot house built in 1954, has massive rough cut beams, high ceilings, original custom cabinetry, and lots of glass. Only cons I can see is that the street facade is lackluster, and there may be some issues related to the age of the building. Surrounded by 24,684 square feet of forest, with McAleer creek at the back of the property, it would make a wonderful retreat. Open House on Tuesday, November 4th from 11-1pm.
13347 12th Ave NE is just across the street from the south end of the Jackson Park Golf Course. Listing for $399,950, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house has 1,400 square feet. It’s more down to earth than the other house and blends the inside with the outside terraced garden. Kitchen has been updated, but the rest of the house looks like it has been well kept to original specs. Golf anyone?
