The initial blurb that accompanies Milton Stricker is always that he was an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright. But the architect made his own mark in the Pacific Northwest with his "organic" designs. The 5-BR at 7102 55th Ave S is a little more straightforward than some of the Y-shaped or V-shaped homes we've seen elsewhere, but it's still a reflection of his style that looked to blend house interiors to the vegetation and views outside. The centerpiece, quite literally, is the glass atrium, which can be seen from all four sides of the home. The 2,320 sf home is situated on a 11,972 sf double lot, accentuating that connection to nature as well. Asking $975K, this midcentury gem still does what Stricker set out to accomplish, a Seattle lifestyle that is becoming rarer and rarer with every modern development that comes in.
