Cabin Vibes and Bursts of Color in a Meticulous Midcentury Modern
1718 NE 124th St is thoroughly cozy—and apparently has been for quite some time. The 1952-built basement rambler has kept many of its original finishes, from kitchen cabinetry to its sloping exposed wood-slat ceiling. Any aesthetic upgrades appear to be in service of brightening the place, like recessed lighting on the lower level and bright, bold paint colors throughout.
While it’s not a total time capsule, the basics are still in the bones. Even its standard midcentury hallmarks have a unique flair, though—like a brick fireplace dividing the living and dining area that’s not just two-sided, but largely open with a generous bench for a fire-pit kind of feeling.
Sitting on a tree-lined quarter acre, the home is made for both indoor and outdoor revelry, with the main-floor common areas opening up to a generous back deck lined with a built-in bench. That works with the wood accents (and the fireplaces!) to give it a cabin-like feeling despite being less than a block to a bus stop and a grocery store.
