Broadmoor Mid-Century

Hat tip to J.M. for sending this in from the Seattle Times:

THEY KNEW it the instant the real-estate agent opened the door. A jewel of a Midcentury modern in all its original, 60-years-ago glory. Untouched and in Broadmoor. Bones as cool as late-night jazz; interiors with that special mix of pooped out and wallpapery perky.

“We wanted to do the kitchen and dining room first,” says Nathan. He’s taking in what is now a warm, modern and comfortable place to conjure up dinner for two or a crowd. “But when that was finished it looked so great we thought, we have to do all of it.”

He’s right. It does look great. Gone is the washer and dryer from their wrongful place near the front door. Instead there is an open galley kitchen of Silestone counters, Ann Sacks limestone backsplash tiles, soft and focused lighting, dark-stained oak cabinets. Overhead throughout the home is the original peaked fir ceiling. It is stripped of its white pickling and has been rubbed with oil. As if in gratitude, it offers a new warmth in return.

  1. Really nice place.

  2. nice crib

    did any of you see the autopsy results from seau? They said they found nothing unusual in his brain.
    Sad to see such a good guy go out like that. I wonder what was really going on in his personal life?

  3. “the old laundry/office/wine cellar combo…”

    What a great room idea. Not sure how you sell this room today… but that’s a hell of an idea. I’d do the laundry if I had a wine cellar in my office!

  4. I just love that style of home; especially when remolded so nice. Love that Seattle neighborhood too! It’s an urban city location; all the homes are attractive and in tip-top shape along tree lined streets (Also expensive being so close-in, and in the city).
