Northwest contemporary Burien home with unobstructed views
Built in 1957, this four-bedroom Burien home was designed by Seattle architecture icon Albert Orin Bumgardner—who was drawn to Seattle in the late 1940s by the works of notable local architects of the time, including Paul Thiry, Paul Hayden Kirk and Fred Bassetti. The Northwest contemporary property was originally built for a Boeing engineer and his family with efficiency in mind, perched atop a tree-covered hillside and offering expansive views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
Floor to ceiling widows span the spacious living room, dining room and kitchen, with picturesque Vashon Island and beyond as the backdrop. Laid out across three floors, the home offers more than 2,800 square feet of living space—including an upper-level master ensuite wrapped in oversized windows. Below the main floor, on the first level, a large and versatile family space features outdoor access, its own fireplace and plenty of square footage for live, work, or play.
Not to be outdone, the property’s distinct outdoor areas and amenities provide similar versatility. Multiple view decks off the back of the home would be ideal for entertaining, while a landscaped patio is primed for dining alfresco or relaxing alongside the firepit. Across the yard, a more intimate deck offers just enough space for two lounge chairs.
