van der Rohe-inspired Edmonds midcentury modern lists for $589K

American midcentury modern fits will with the mutual minimalism of Japan, Scandinavia, and Shaker styles in this house inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Walls of windows have been around for awhile, at least since 1961. A midcentury modern, or at least modern for the time, was inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and built in Edmonds on 0.66 acres. Even then, Japanese style influenced design elements like the "original mahogany and Japanese Sen Wood cabinets in mint condition." Simplicity is always in style.

The basics of the house are as a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath house; but if that's all that mattered then every house would just be a bunch of boxes. One testament to the perseverance of the style is that, even after fifty years, there is still furniture that matches the design and the decor. Despite the label 'modern', the simple lines encourage a multi-cultural approach from the mutual minimalism of Japan, Scandinavia, and Shaker. With 1,868 square feet to work with, there's not too much nor too little space to fill - or leave purposely empty.

At $589,000, the house is close to Seattle's median house price, but this property is in Edmonds which means also getting plenty of natural garden space outdoors. The koi pond, fire pit patio, and deck extend the living space outside. Except for one patch of lawn shown in one photo, there isn't much mowing to distract from sitting and relaxing.
