If you’re looking for a midcentury modern in Seattle, you’d do best to look in the Seward Park area. It might as well be a housing farm where midcentury modern homes are grown.

One of those homes just hit the market and has all the trappings of the 1950s time capsules we’ve come to love.

The 3,050 square-foot, three-bedroom at 6437 Hampton Road S was originally built in 1959. According to the listing, it was built for a U.S. District Court Judge, which is a super-specific detail we can only assume is meant to appeal to District Court Judge groupies who also have the $955,000 required to live here.

Hope you don’t mind people being able to keep tabs on you from the street because those floor-to-ceiling living area windows under a vaulted roof you’d expect are out in full force. The huge windows wrap around the entire home as well, which allows you to get some lake views in certain spots.

You’ve got the big stone fireplace, a sizable covered deck, and all the woodwork you can handle. The spacious kitchen looks like it’s been updated and the dining room has a great luxury-in-simplicity feeling.
