When you look at the windows at the heart of the 3-BR, 2.5-bath home at 367 Highland Drive, you'd think that they built it thinking about how to best frame their view of the Space Needle and everything beyond. But then you realize the home was built in 1940, a full 22 years before the Needle existed.
Asking $1.495M, that view of the Space Needle and Elliott Bay is a big part of why the price is so high. But this Northwest Contemporary and it's two-level windows are just part of the attraction here. Tons of upgrades have been made since 1940, including Thassos counters and sinks as well as an island fridge in the kitchen, not to mention a marble bathroom upstairs. There's also radiant floors throughout.
High quirk factor here as well. The garage doubles as an office/band room and the bedroom with stairs that lead up to a loft space make for a cool kid's room. While the view is impressive from inside the house, the one from the outdoor patio up top might be even more so.
