Midcentury home tucked away in Seattle’s North Beach
Situated at the end of a private, dead end street in Seattle’s North Beach neighborhood, 8743 24th Ave. NW is on the market. The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home was built in 1960—the height of the midcentury movement. Its simplicity, use of natural elements and integration with nature embody those design principles. Across the home’s 2,620-square-foot floorplan, highlights include vaulted ceilings, exposed wood beams and a statement fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stacked stone and brick.
Just beyond the breeze blocks and in the front door, you’ll find the home’s cozy formal living room. A bank of oversized windows lines the back of the room—looking into the backyard with mature evergreens. The home’s double-sided fireplace creates separation between the living room and formal dining room, where French doors open onto an elevated patio. Past the dining space and into the kitchen, home cooks will be delighted by the ample storage space and informal eating area for quick family meals and meals on-the-go.
Three bedrooms and a bathroom—with a vibrant retro turquoise color scheme—round out the main floor. Downstairs, two additional bedrooms provide optimal space for home offices, hobby rooms or guest spaces. An informal first-floor den also features a working fireplace and ample natural light. The backyard, including a patio and hot tub, can be accessed from the lower floor via the laundry room.
