Pacific Northwest midcentury modern home in Lake Forest Park
Nestled between parallel stands of evergreen trees, 17208 Brookside Blvd. NE is on the market for the first time in six decades. Located on the north end of Seattle’s metro area, the four-bedroom home was built in 1939 and sits on a lush half-acre. Close to Lake Washington, the Burke-Gilman Trail and the Towne Center at Lake Forest, the property provides an ideal balance of privacy and proximity.
Across the home’s 2,680 square feet, aesthetic details include high and vaulted ceilings, natural woodwork, a two-story brick fireplace and a mixture of oversized windows and windows in nontraditional shapes. Outside, the space is primed for entertaining with multiple decks and patios, as well as lovingly tended gardens and detached garage.
On the main floor, the home’s master bedroom sits under a wood-planked ceiling. A warm and inviting living room is covered by windows on three sides, overlooking the meticulously kept yard—including fruit trees. A functional u-shaped kitchen sits alongside an eat-in dining area and a door leading to the back patio. Elsewhere, an open-concept formal dining room and living area provide additional visual connection to the outdoors—plus built-in seating and shelves.
Upstairs, an additional bonus space could serve a variety of functions—office or school space, playroom or creative studio. Three bedrooms offer similar square footage, natural light and tall ceiling heights, as well as share a bathroom and separate water closet.
