Tastes, norms, and designs change a lot over the years. And that’s part of the reason why we see fewer and fewer heritage homes in Seattle these days. Let alone houses that have had multi-decade influence and alterations like this Seward Park home for sale. Ready to take a peek inside?
This legacy property was built in 1916 and sits on over half an acre, one block from Lake Washington. Its grounds have professionally nurtured black pine and Japanese maple trees, a sports court, and mature fruit trees creating a lush green space. You’ll feel like you have your very own forest and if you decide you need more greenery you can always head over to Seward Park which is a short walk or drive away.
Now when you enter this home, things look pretty classically heritage. It has 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and 3,990 sqft of space. Theres gleaming wood floors, wall detailing and beautiful windows. But as you move through the home and into the open living and dining areas, things will start to look a lot more 60s/70s.
You’ll find wood walls and beams, abundant shelves, skylights, and large windows. It’s a unique mix of MCM and heritage that could be made wickedly cool by someone with a vision for the space.
What makes this home even more unique is that it has an indoor lap pool and a separate Mother-In-Law suite above the garage with a kitchenette and bath. You could rent that space out, let your friends live there, or have a studio space. This home has many possibilities and if it sounds like the perfect purchase for you, it’ll cost $1.85 million.

Happy house hunting!
