Seatac: It isn’t just about the airport, but it’s rather hard to ignore, too. Take a quick trip through five of the most affordable homes in Seatac.
Dial it back to 1955 when they built this 1,410 square-foot rambler and find an era when airliners were using Boeing Field as well as the newer Sea-Tac Airport. The three bedroom, one bathroom house looks newer than that, with very little suggesting the age except the mature landscaping. Priced at $320,000, the package includes the 7,840 square-foot lot with fruit trees and ample parking. (The long term lot next door is much bigger.)
The most obvious feature from the curb is probably the lavender exterior and the chevron garage door. Keep this 1962 rambler retro or follow the listing’s lead and consider it a fixer. In 2,160 square feet there are five bedrooms and two and a quarter bathrooms. There’s more room outside thanks to a 0.26 acre lot, and a wrap-around deck. Take a tour to find out if the $359,950 package is a large or small project.
How about low maintenance thanks to plenty of pavement? Thanks to a wide driveway, a sport court, a covered outdoor entertainment area, a firepit, and a walkways, there’s a lot less to mow than is normal for a 0.26 acre lot. The 1948 rambler has four bedrooms, two and three-quarter bathrooms, and 2,000 square feet for $385,000. It also has an innovative corner space that is curved on the outside and square inside.
Mixed materials have their eras. This 1969 split entry may be the newest of the five, but like some of the others the exterior is a mix of brick and wood. The choice was probably more style than function, but at least there’s less likelihood of wood to ground contact. Dull, but important. The three bedroom, two bathroom, 1,580 square-foot house sits on a 8,367 square-foot lot and is priced at $399,950.
The swimming pool would seem to be enough to make this 2,900 square-foot house stand out, but step inside and find wood paneling that is uncommon and dramatic. A variety of slants and tones make rooms unique, and hopefully not induce vertigo. The house was built in 1965 and has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, accommodations ready for a big family. It and the 8,276 square-foot lot are priced at $450,000.
