Retro Olympic Manor midcentury with panoramic water, mountain views
Built in 1957, 9327 23rd Ave. NW is a five-bedroom home in northwest Seattle’s Olympic Manor neighborhood. Among many noteworthy features and design elements, the 3,210-square-foot home is defined by its sweeping views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains—from nearly every room on the main floor. Oversized windows along the upper floor’s west-facing side bring the Pacific Northwest’s unmistakable landscapes up close.
The home’s retro interior boasts clean lines, a peaked roofline with exposed beams, skylights and plenty of original features. Opposite of the living room’s corner windows, a large stone fireplace and hearth surround provide a cozy backdrop for everyday living. Water- and mountain-facing windows extend into the kitchen and dining rooms, while an elevated view deck off the main floor provides panoramic views across the sound and beyond.
Downstairs, the walkout basement features two flex-use rec rooms and a separate entrance. Whether you utilize the basement as a family room, art studio or guest suite, the second of two original stone fireplaces is primed to keep things toasty. From the lower level, the zero-landscaping-required backyard space is directly accessible—perfect for easy summer entertaining with a view.
