Classic midcentury home sits creek-side in north Seattle
Sitting alongside Thornton Creek and the King Fisher Natural Area, this classic midcentury home maximizes its proximity to greenspaces. This three-bedroom home provides 2,300-square-feet of living space and an unbeatable connection to the nature beyond its walls.
Walking into the house, you’re drawn through to south-facing floor-to-ceiling windows that provide an elevated view of ferns and evergreens. Hardwood flooring enhance the treehouse vibe, while updated kitchen appliances, radiant heat and a gas fireplace add a luxurious touch. Those big windows carry into the main floor master bedroom, which includes a large, walk-in closet with built-ins.
Floating stairs lead to the lower-floor living space, a near carbon copy of the room above—complete with a cozy balcony. Two smaller bedrooms feel a bit more private and share a full bath complete with midcentury pink tile. A bonus area downstairs provides room for extra storage, a media or library room or an extra play space.
Outside, a walkway wraps around the home, leading into the backyard where you’ll find colorful plantings and a rain garden. Located in Victory Heights, this home is three miles north of University of Washington and a half-mile light rail. Simply put, this classic midcentury combines the seclusion of nature and the connectedness of city living.
