Sophisticated Seward Park midcentury home
Built in 1957 and restored more recently, 6055 51st Pl. S is an inspiring five-bedroom midcentury home in Seattle’s Seward Park neighborhood. From the curb, the home’s striking cyan blue front door draws the eye—and there’s more to discover behind the vibrant entry point.
Across its 2,720 square feet, some of the property’s most impressive features include its flawless original stone flooring and epic two-story wood burning fireplace. On the main floor, an open-concept great room offers a bright, window-wrapped kitchen, living and dining space under a low-slung roofline. A sliding door onto the back patio creates an extended, indoor/outdoor footprint—ideal for entertaining during the upcoming summer months. Beyond the renovated kitchen—including an island with eat-in bar-top space—a hallway leads past one bedroom, a bathroom and the laundry space to the primary ensuite.
Downstairs, a large, secondary rec room is where the party’s at! The dynamic downstairs space, which features a fireplace and kitchenette, could be utilized for movie nights, workouts, office or art space, or all of the above. A wall of windows and sliding door provide great visual connectivity to the lush backyard. Three additional guest rooms and a three-quarters bath round out the lower level.
