Three-bedroom midcentury treehouse in Burien
Built in 1965, this World’s Fair-era home in Burien’s Fenton Wood neighborhood sits among the evergreens. A midcentury masterpiece with captivating territorial and peek-a-boo water views, 3039 SW 116th Pl. offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms across 2,200 square feet. A blend of original charm, custom touches and modern conveniences, the home is characterized by its wall-to-wall windows and full-length decks off of each living space.
The front door opens into a cozy and open-concept main floor with a kitchen, dining and living room. Along its western edge, the home is lined by oversized windows and sliding doors that provide multiple outdoor access points. Various decks off of the living, dining and main-floor bedroom are uncovered, allowing natural light to filter into the home. Each deck has been recently weatherized and updated, including their metal rails.
Down the custom staircase, the home’s lower level offers a similar floorplan to the main floor. A versatile secondary living area opens onto a covered deck, and two bedrooms and a bathroom comprise the rest of the space.
In addition to period details like clean lines and exposed beams, the home’s acacia hardwood floors gleam. Modern updates include the installation of air conditioning, new plumbing and electrical, earthquake retrofitting and updated bathrooms.
