Burien, Houses

Built in 1955, 11660 23rd Ave. SW in Burien is four-bedroom, four-bathroom midcentury home on a half-acre lot. Custom built by architect and structural engineer S.D. Vanek, the property offers true-to-the-period details and charm with all the benefits of a thoughtful 2022 restoration.

Laid out across 2,890 square feet, some of the home’s most noteworthy elements are its exposed tongue and groove ceilings, retro steel I-beams and a walls of glass. Abundant natural light streams into both floors, and both feature large, open floorplans with a fireplace at the center.

Upstairs, the open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen sit below skylights and look into the lush and manicured backyard. There are two elevated decks off the main floor, including one that’s accessible via the dining room. The updated kitchen features stainless steel appliances and a gas range, as well as an eat-in island with additional storage. The primary suite and a second bedroom—with direct access to the second elevated deck—are also on the main floor.

Downstairs, there’s a huge daylight rec/playroom that features a cozy living area, backyard access and a wet bar. Two additional bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms sit at either end of the family space, and a laundry room is tucked into the interior of the lower floor.
