Seattle architect Seth McCallen Fulcher attended the University of Washington in 1942 and went on to become an award-winning designer rather quickly. He would go on to become of the region's most prolific home architects of the midcentery era. His focus was often on a Contemporary style that featured post-and-beam supported roofs and large glass windows.
While the spec house he built for E.B. Vaughters on Mercer Island is considered his masterpiece, you can get a pretty good sense of what his style was like by checking out the midcentury modern home he designed at 1105 NW Norcross Way in Blue Ridge that just listed for $1.05M.
Built in 1958, this five-bedroom, 3,280 square-foot residence has been restored but the original notions that Fulcher created are still evident. That post-and-beam roof and the big windows are right there giving the home the shell it needs to bloom from. The way the woodwork on the ceiling balances the floor really adds a whole new dimension to the space. The kitchen is long and modern, featuring a very cool counter-seating setup.
Rooms are big and even the shower in the master bath looks like it could become a tiny bedroom if you needed it to be for some weird reason. Appliances are top notch and there's clearly upgrades all around. Out back, the large deck gives you a great space from which to take in the sloping backyard and landscaping.
