Late in his career, Seattle architect Jesse M. Warren focused on small, efficient homes that showcased minimalism and simplicity. Warren had a passion for populist homeownership and the brick 3-BR at 12003 35th Ave NE in Meadowbrook is an example that's survived many market fluctuations since. Asking $350K, the 1946 house offers art deco touches and hardwoods throughout. Lots of potential here with an unfinished basement that could become a MIL unit as well as a detached garage that could double as a shop (or ADU if you got really creative). Warren wanted his simple concrete & brick designs to be available to everyone. It might not look like too much right now but the potential he saw still remains. 70 years later, it's still a way into Seattle homeownership for those who can't keep up with the market.
