Thoughtfully renovated midcentury home in Wedgwood
Built in 1955, 2553 NE 106th Pl. is a three-bedroom, one-bathroom home in northeast Seattle’s leafy Wedgwood neighborhood. This home and 12 others nearby were designed by Arnold Wisbeck and built by Les Sauvage, and an article showcasing the property titled “Open Plan Marks Contemporary Home” ran in The Seattle Times on May 29, 1955. The architect-builder team worked together on another building in the neighborhood that same year—the Will House Pharmacy, now the Wedgwood Rite Aid building on 35th Avenue NE.
More recently, the owner and her architect spent seven years updating the one-story, 1,567-square-foot home while preserving the original designer’s vision. Noteworthy renovations include a new membrane roof, a new heating systems, the addition of a yoga room with heated floors and a mudroom between the garage and house.
Inside, walls of windows wrap the living areas around a redesigned yard, and vaulted ceilings are lined by wood beams. New oak floors add brightness to the space, which offers distinct areas for dining, relaxing and warming up by the fire. The spacious bathroom features a double vanity and easy access to the washer and dryer across the hall. The kitchen includes dark cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, and is conveniently located in the heart of the home.
The entire yard was reimagined with a new fence, patio and separate fire pit—all sitting under ambient string lights. A walkway winds around the back of the home, providing access to the raised planters, while seating areas across the corner lot provide space to entertain or relax.
