5 of the most affordable homes in Lynnwood

The Baby Boom lives on in ramblers and split-entries

Our weekly tour of neighborhoods continues with a visit to Lynnwood, where four of this week’s five houses are under $400,000.

Welcome to a classic, one story rambler, a house style that seemed like a starter when it was built in 1963, but has regained some popularity with those looking for “one-level living.” The three-bedroom, one-bathroom, 1,352-square-foot house remembers its era with a (dry) cocktail bar. The pass-through makes it easier to deliver the ice to the bar and the drinks from it. Include the fenced 7,405 square-foot lot and find a package price of $349,980.

Another rambler, this one with 1,542 square feet but the same number of bedrooms and bathrooms, is priced slightly higher at $374,950. Inside, there are fewer period pieces. A skylight in the living room adds a modern touch. Outside, the main item to note is the separate shed—a potential office, retreat, or studio.

Great concrete pads out front provide plenty of parking for cars and RVs. A two car garage helps, too. A great expanse of wooden decking out back provides plenty of parking for people, assuming the weather eventually cooperates. Between them is a four bedroom, two bathroom, 1,698 square-foot rambler that was built in 1958. The $375,000 price includes the fenced 7,841 square-foot lot, which may sound familiar.

Finally, a house that isn’t a rambler. It’s that other icon of the Baby Boom, a 1958 split-entry, a house built for the kids to play downstairs out of the way of the adults. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms in the 2,182 square-foot house, at least there shouldn’t be a line. A big brick fireplace and the colorful bathroom tiles make for interesting, retro details. Listed at $379,000, head outside for the 10,018 square-foot lot.

Older can mean bigger, at least in terms of lot size. At 0.39 acres, it isn’t a surprise that this listing emphasizes the yard, the gardens, and the foliage. The 1948 house is for sale at $423,000. A pair of uncommon features are slate floors and a mud room, two pragmatic items considering our rainy climate and a yard ready for getting your hands dirty. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms sit in the 1,784 square feet of living space.
