Whenever a house by James Jessup comes up we always like to call attention to it. When a house built by James Jessup for James Jessup comes up, we want to make sure we highlight the heck out of it. Especially when it's this 3-BR, 1.75-bath in Shoreline that just listed for $449K.
According to the current seller, the original hand-drawn house plans for the home say they were designed for Jessup and taking one look you'd have to imagine that this is exactly the kind of place a Pacific Northwest architect would want to call home. Seemingly bigger on the top than on the bottom, this 1,530 square-foot Northwest Contemporary builds upwards, leaving plenty of open space below on the 6,430 square-foot lot.
They key to the multi-level design is the way it creates open living throughout. Huge windows & vaulted ceilings work together to make everything bright and airy. And though many of the rooms have openings and walls that end prematurely, there's enough structure to give each one it's own distinct space. Enjoy the outdoors from the BBQ deck off the living room or out back amongst the open space.
