Midcentury modern Blue Ridge home near the beach
Built in 1949, 1736 NW Greenbrier Way is a midcentury modern stunner in Seattle’s Blue Ridge neighborhood. Located near Carkeek Park, the five-bedroom, two-bathroom home is close to the beach and provides quick access to Ballard’s shops and restaurants. A one-story, single-family home with a basement, the property has retained many original details and design elements.
The main floor living area is characterized by clean lines, original woodwork and corrugated glass walls. Floor-to-ceiling windows along the back of this 2,690-square-foot home bring the outside in, soaking the living, dining and kitchen spaces in natural light. The cozy living room is defined by its red brick fireplace–the low-profile hearth wraps around the edge of the room and doubles as a built-in window planter.
Elsewhere on the main floor, the kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances and an eat-in bar, a private library nook adjoins the living room and three bedrooms–including primary bedroom–offer tranquil garden views. Off the living room, a private patio provides ample square footage for outdoor entertaining, as well as views of the Puget Sound.
Downstairs, the daylight basement features two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, a laundry space and an office with built-in maple cabinets and outdoor access. Beyond the property’s terraced garden space with raised beds, the neighborhood’s residents can utilize the private community pool and tennis courts.
