Just a few blocks from the Puget Sound in the beachside city of Edmonds, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom home creates a unique space in each and every room.
It was built in 1968, edging just out of midcentury territory—although it has the hallmarks of a Northwest midcentury, with vaulted wood-slat ceilings, walls of window banks, and dramatic-yet-minimalist fireplaces. It’s starting to color outside the lines a little bit though, with a more contemporary exterior and some showier finishes.
The centerpiece of the home is a great room with several carefully delineated spaces within it. A living area and a kitchen-side lounge are both underneath high ceilings—which drop to carve out a dining room in-between. The ceiling drops again over a sunken fireside lounge.
In many a midcentury home, the rec room downstairs has fewer frills than the more formal spaces above, but a uniquely shaped, wood-slat ceiling pairs with exposed-grain walls for an upscale lodge vibe. Along the back of the house, both stories’ gathering spaces can extend seamlessly into the outdoors with a deck above and a patio below, both facing those water views.
