Too young to be a midcentury but with the structure of a contemporary, this view house in Edmonds has a mix of both with some design choices that are a bit more rural. There’s no rule that says a house has to have only one style. For $1,495,000 you get at least three in one package.
Exposed beams in the living room and a long swath of windows are the main midcentury hallmarks in this home. The house was built in 1987, so the contemporary edges make sense. Instead of a wood fireplace it is gas, and the built-in cabinets are sized to hold big screens in addition to expanses of books.
In the other half of the great room is a kitchen with modern appliances and slab granite counters, which all sit in, on, and around country style cabinetry. Both light and dark wood cabinets should provide enough storage, including the glass display cupboards.
A few more frills adorn the corner master bedroom that pulls in some of the north view, too. The suite juts out from the rest of the house, letting light come in from south, west, north, and even above thanks to a skylight in the bath.
Of the three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, enjoy the mural work in one of the bathrooms. The master doesn’t get all of the attention.
Outside the 2,933 square-foot home is yet another distinctive feature, a 1,300 square-foot deck that has a separate level for a gas firepit. Quite modern. The design allows two level seating to enjoy the view.
Complete the package with the terraced 0.7 acre lot and wander from country to mid-century to contemporary to modern all arranged to enjoy an ancient and natural view.
