Midcentury Burien view-home designed by Tucker & Shields

Burien, Houses

Built in 1957, 12139 Shorewood Dr. SW is a midcentury estate offering sweeping views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Range. True to the principles of high-end midcentury design, the property’s large courtyard with a covered path and lush landscaping welcome you into a truly spectacular space. That’s just the start.

This architecturally significant home was designed by renowned local architects Tucker & Shields. Bert Tucker and Robert McKay Shields started a firm with Roland Terry in the 1940s. The group went on to create some of the region’s most iconic midcentury homes and businesses—including Canlis—before going their separate ways in the 60s. 

Inside this 2,940-square-foot home, floor-to-ceiling windows stretch across the western wall—framing breathtaking territorial and water views. Accessible from the main floor or the second-floor elevated deck, the back patio is as wide as the home itself. From there, take your private pathway down to enjoy 60-feet of Puget Sound waterfront—a rare property with private mooring.

Renovated in 2017, the kitchen features new appliances, an island, curated light fixtures and a skylight overhead. The primary bedroom offers direct access to the elevated deck and an updated master bathroom with double vanity and copper soaking tub.
