Lovingly maintained midcentury home in Magnolia

By February 20, 2022

Houses, Magnolia

Designed by Ira E. Cummings in 1959, 4225 28th Pl. W is a midcentury modern gem that has been cherished and thoughtfully improved on over the years. Located in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood, the three-bedroom home offers quick proximity downtown and Ballard, as well as to Discovery Park—the city’s premier green space.

Inside, a wall of east-facing windows runs the entire length of the home. This wall of glass provides sweeping views of nearby Fremont and Phinney Ridge. In the living room, a wraparound sandstone fireplace with an oversized opening and raised seating hearth exemplifies the swankiness of the era. Gracious enough to host, the living room sits under a low slung roof with exposed beam and provides access to a cozy, elevated main floor patio. The home’s kitchen was recently renovated but honors the home’s history and style with a mod color palette, groovy eat-in bar and plenty of storage.

On the first floor, a sizable family room features a wall of built-in shelves, a fireplace and connectivity to a ground-level patio that wraps around to the back of the property. In the backyard, there’s a lovely deck with firepit and lounge chairs alongside a privacy-fostering wall of landscaped rocks and vegetation. Up a few stairs, you’ll find a platform perfect for yoga, meditation, coffee or just taking in the elevated views.
