This Sunday, Mad Men signs off for good and we're left to ponder what will become of Don Draper, Betty Draper, Roger Sterling, Peggy Olson, Pete Campbell and the rest of the Formerly Known As Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce crew. While the most important question of all is what's going to happen to Don's apartment, we're also wondering just how close Don is going to get to the Pacific Northwest. That made us wonder, what if he decides to settle down around Seattle? And what if McCann magically decided to open a Puget Sound outpost? Where would everyone live? We scoured the current listings to see what kind of midcentury homes still hold up and legit options for these mad men & women. Pour yourself an Old Fashioned, check out these potential Draper residences and then enjoy the end of the show's impressive run.Read More
Eight Mad Men-Worthy Seattle Homes You Can Buy Right Now
1. 1955 Admiral 3-BR ($525K)
Seattle, WA 98116
This Admiral mid-century was built in 1955, making it prime early-season Mad Men living. That fireplace centerpiece and open floor-plan are built for everyday living and great parties. Break out the old-fashioneds.
2. 1960 Kirkland 5-BR ($1.3M)
Kirkland, WA 98034
This bright, open floor plan is more Megan than Betty. It's actually a studs-out remodel that's kept a lot of it's original mid-century modern roots. You can see the updates in the bedrooms and kitchen, but the living area is all 60's.
3. 1965 Webster Point 5-BR ($4.8M)
Seattle, WA 98105
The Lionel Pries home in Webster Point was the last large project this well-known NW Architect completed. Preserved in its 1965 glory, this place has a classic mid-century foyer and a kitchen Betty would have lorded over (or at least her maid would have).
4. 1958 Tukwila 4-BR ($395K)
Tukwila, WA 98188
Here's a Mt. Rainier view classic with amazing original light & bath fixtures on a gorgeously landscaped lot. Multiple rooms in the home has maintained their original 1958 charm. We could totally see little Bobby and his friends running around the house with plastic over their heads as the parents looked on.
5. 1980 Camano 2-BR ($928K)
Camano Island, WA 98282
This place was built in 1980 but you could absolutely see Don Draper settling in here. Don seems to want to head for the Pacific and this beachfront property fits the bill. That TV, the bar and the decor...it all fits even if it was built a decade late.
6. 1961 Loyal Heights 3-BR ($724K)
Seattle, WA 98117
The owners (or home-stagers) clearly revel in the midcentury particulars and this place is a time capsule to the era it was built. We especially love the bar and the groovy patio with the cantilever cover out back. The perfect place for the Mad Men crew to kick back for a drink before their next drink.
7. 1949 Hawthorne Hills 2-BR ($644K)
Seattle, WA 98105
This Paul Kirk home is a bit more modern in its mid-century modern-ness, but it's still well within the era. The decor certainly screams Megan more than Betty, so maybe this is where she can live if the acting thing doesn't work out.
8. 1964 Medina 5-BR ($2.18M)
Medina, WA 98039
You know who'd fit with this Ibsen Andreas Nelsen mid-century home? Bert Cooper. It's Pacific Northwestern modernity to it with a hint of Asian influence and we could totally see Bert adding his own personal flair. Plus, he's the most likely Mad Men character to end up in Medina.
