Won’t You By My Neighbor – Spacious and Classic MCM In Seattle, WA

By RetroRuth

Today we have a great mid-century home in Seattle, WA that was sent in by reader Carol. Carol writes:

This one is down the street from my friend Gael. It’s a mid-century anomaly on a street of 1920s tudors.

Well, as much as I love Tudor homes, I will take a mid-century anomaly any day!


This home was built in 1953 and it is approximately 3500 square feet. It has 5 (!) bedrooms and 1 and 3/4 bathrooms. The listing price is $569,000 and it is being sold by Windermere Real Estate.


From the listing:

Inviting 1953 Mid-Century Modern offering all the classic features of it’s era: slate entry, large entertainment spaces, gorgeous honey-colored oak floors, 2 stone fireplaces & 5 bedrooms to boot! This home has been well maintained by the same owner for nearly 40 years. Located in the desirable Loyal Heights neighborhood, this sleek home sits high above the street offering peek-a-boo views of the Olympics. With nearly 3500 sq feet & a two car garage, there is ample storage and room to romp!

It looks like this floor got a 1980’s makeover, but that could be easily fixed. The green fixtures look to be in good shape!

So, what do you guys think? I am totally digging the knotty pine room, and the use of wood and stone is really great. I am also loving that light fixture in the dining room!

    It looks as though the flooring in the knotty pine bonus room is asbestos tile like we had in our home. Guess you don’t have to worry about it unless you need to rip it out. Love your posts of midcentury homes. Thanks.
