Milton Stricker made his own name in the Pacific Northwest with his "organic" designs but he's always going to be associated with another name: Frank Lloyd Wright. Stricker was FLW's first apprentice to be licensed as an architect in Washington State and left behind a legacy of complex and geometrically-distinct midcentury homes and buildings in the region.
One of those homes just hit the market in Seward Park asking $799K.
The 5-BR, 2.5-bath, 3,243 square-foot residence was originally built in 1963. Though it's been well-maintained, it still offers up an uncompromising 60s vibe throughout.
Enter through the glass-framed front door and you'll find a main living area with skylights, a big brick fireplace, and the original couch and side tables, which are completely built-in. The kitchen walks that delicate line between being vintage but also offering modern luxuries, such as Wolf Range and original cabinetry. You can go directly from the eating area to the deck and backyard.
Downstairs, the quintessential midcentury hangout space, complete with fireplace, wet bar, and plenty of room for your pool table. Some of the other era-specific details you won't be able to miss include shiplap, mitered windows, a laundry chute, and many more built-ins.
