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.

7018 150th Place SW is listed for $1.25 million through Windermere.

The ceiling carves out different areas within the great room—like the dropped ceiling on the dining room.
Behind the dining room, a separate sitting area with a wet bar is surrounded by the kitchen on one side and the back deck on the other.
The kitchen, which has plenty of counter space and bar seating, is semi-open to a lounge area.

The master bedroom has a wood accent wall to match the same dramatic ceilings as the living room—and opens to a deck.
The downstairs den has its own stone fireplace and a unique ceiling shape.
The exterior reveals asymmetrical rooflines and plenty of skylights.
