Bellevue Midcentury Designed by Oscar Nominee Asks $1.38M

New, 1 comment


When he wasn't being nominated for an Oscar for Best Art Direction in Hollywood, John Detlie was busy designing another kind of art, homes. He puts his University of Pennsylvania architecture degrees to work designing houses all over, including a bunch in the Seattle area. One such residence, the 1951-built 3-BR at 5440 148th Ave SE in Bellevue, just hit the market asking $1.388M. Midcentury fans can start lining up now as this two-level home captures everything about the modern movement of the era. It's classic indoor/outdoor living thanks to window walls that blend nature with contemporary comfort. A great space for hosting get-togethers, at which you can regale guests about how your home was designed by the first husband of actress Veronica Lake. We're assuming they're old enough to know who Veronica Lake was.
