This Space-Age Seward Park Home is Seattle's Epcot Center

New, 1 comment


In an episode of The Simpsons that features a trip to Epcot Center, the theme park is described as "what the people in 1965 thought the world would be like in 1987." We can't help but think about that summation when we look at the 1963-built 4BR at 7001 Brighton Lane S that just hit the market asking $948K. The home, known as Vista '63, was actually "completely built, furnished and landscaped in 10 days" as part of the 1963 Seattle Home Show. Vintage details abound, such as a lo-fi Rangaire intercom & starry sky acoustic tiles. Intended to be a "house of ideas" rather than a house you're supposed to, you know, actually live in, the 3,942 sq. ft. Ken Koehler design still manages to seem like a unique, if not cozy, abode. According to a Post-Intellegencer article from the time, the way the master suite sits atop the home "is reminiscent of the lunar landing module of an Apollo-era spacecraft." So, yeah...1960's.
