Artsy hillside hideaway in NE Seattle

By June 19, 2020

Houses, Lake City, Matthews Beach

Nestled among ferns and evergreens, this slope-side, single-family home is on the market for $875,000 in northeast Seattle.

Designed by John Morse of Bassetti-Morse Architects in 1954, the international-style midcentury house has retained many original finishes and floorplan specifications. From the Masonite flooring and plywood cabinetry to the large windows that offer Lake Washington peekaboo views, this one-of-a-kind, artful abode plays with the boundaries between indoor and outdoor.

Located at the end of a quiet street between the Matthews Beach and Lake City neighborhoods, this home offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,300-square-feet.

Entering the wood-clad property through the front door—its bright yellow—will put you on the second-story main floor. Upstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Below, at ground level, is another bedroom and full bath. Unifying both floors, the home’s east-facing windows are covered by windows. Exposed beams along the upstairs ceiling carry through to the exterior to provide partial covering for the deck.

Throughout the home, concrete floors, walls and ceilings are balanced by ample light, natural wood cabinetry and accents and a peaceful green backdrop visible from every window. Off the main floor’s kitchen, living and dining rooms, a large deck provides a space suitable for anything from solitary meditation to entertaining.
