Contemporary Madrona rental designed by Tom Kundig
Built in 2009, 1701 33rd Ave. is a contemporary single-family home in Seattle’s Madrona neighborhood. Built by renowned architect Tom Kundig, the two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home is also known as the Hammer House—and it’s up for rent.
Listed at $5,499 per month, the iconic Hammer House boasts an open floorplan creating a sense of spaciousness and connectedness to the outdoors. Facing away from neighboring houses and toward the larger urban landscape, the 2,210-square-foot home is a light-filled expression of concrete, glass and steel—all key to Kundig’s elemental approach to design.
Offered as a 12-month lease, the property’s loft-like design offers expansive views, custom details and a thoughtful layout. The main floor is a single open living space, with the living room, dining room, and kitchen—bedecked with Miele, Wolf, and SubZero appliances. A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors provide direct access to a street-side terrace and main deck, whether you’re inside or out.
The home’s study and primary ensuite are upstairs. The former overlooks the front terrace and street, while the latter boasts an attached private deck looking west toward the arboretum and downtown. The Hammer House’s lower level holds a mudroom, guest suite, laundry space and storage area.
