Beautifully maintained midcentury in North Seattle asks $899K

This modern home looks out over Meadowbrook Park

The dining area has a classic midcentury design, with floor-to-ceiling windows, a sloped wood-panel ceiling, and a fireplace divider with built-ins.
Spencer Redford, Rendering Space

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.

3009 NE 105th Street is on the market for $899,000 through Windermere.

The home opens to a great room, divided by a fireplace and sleek built-ins.
Just off the main entry, a fireside living room has floor-to-ceiling windows cozied up in the roofline.
The dining room is open to the kitchen, separated by a breakfast bar.
A den on the lower level provides a less-formal gathering space.
Like many a Northwest midcentury basement rambler, the home keeps a low profile at entry.
The yard wraps around at two levels, with the front and side flush with the main floor—and a lower yard with a swing set.
