Up in the North Seattle neighborhood of Meadowbrook—just north of Wedgwood, part of the original Lake City annex—this four-bedroom midcentury modern home has most of the original trimmings from 1958. On the main, upper floor, living areas are loosely separated by a two-sided fireplace, each occupying one slope of the shallow roofline under a dramatic wood-paneled ceiling. On one side, a sitting area cozies up behind a translucent room divider from the entry. On the other, a dining area opens up to an elevated back deck, a classic staple of the basement rambler design common to the era.
Typical of a Boeing Boom midcentury, the place has plenty of room to stash a family, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms (minimal sharing!) in 3540 square feet. One bedroom—one of three on the top floor—would be an ideal office, opening up to a patio in the side yard. Below, a rec room has its own brick fireplace, and another bedroom makes up for its basement locale with tons of closet space and built-ins. There’s plenty of unfinished space down here for a shop or a den expansion, too.
