At just under three hundred thousand ($298,000) is a four-bedroom, two-bathroom rambler that was built in 1942, just as Boeing was building up. The 1,510-square-foot house sits on a 7,405-square-foot lot. Newer, white appliances in the kitchen and a modern plastic shower surround show some upgrades have happened since then. Is it time for the next round?

The fifth of the five is both the largest, at 1,900 square feet; on the biggest lot, with more than a third of an acre; and the oldest, built in 1928. It also boasts a view of the Space Needle, the Great Wheel, and one of Boeing’s plants.

Inside are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a full-height unfinished basement. The listing includes few photos, but maybe the price—$335,000—is incentive enough for a tour.
