This site features architecturally cool (who am I to name something "cool" ah well the word comes into play often)... MODERNIST inspired mid-century and newer clean modern lines (or potentially with a little vision from you, I, and talented architects, designers, craftmakers, restorationists/remodelers, contractors, furniture, etc).
Real estate for sale around the general Seattle area, we try to do some "filtering" for you from the "generic" and the bland. This is the original modern architecture for sale website and is still going strong for over 12 years. Call Tom at: 206-841-0003

Some examples to show you what the market contains and contained and what I have an "EYE" for, and I LOVE working with buyers who "get it" in regards to design and modernist appreciation such as this one on the market recently, built in 1958:






^ Now that's what I'm talkin' bout! ^

Market activity, new listings etc, are showing some holiday winter seasonal slowing up, somewhat slim pickings this week plus  I also have specific buyers I'm working with too of course, but here's what  I saw for this week,  mostly newer modern but a few  from the midcentury with potential...more to come after the first of the year for sure....but it's not bad to buy now, I just finished one of my busiest Novembers ever, three south end sale, a midcentury sale on Mercer Island, and the one below so I cannot complain!
I had a great Thanksgiving too, 21 people over to the house!

To see the listing for Dec 1st, 2013:

Accept no substitues. I'M THE ORIGINAL modern architecture real estate broker around these here parts GUARANTEED (the only one I know before me was down in LA in the eighties). PRE "Atomic Ranch" or "dwell" magazine. The book "Googie", (with an "i", not "google") back in the 1980's kind of got me started on this idea/concept (plus my experience as a licensed builder, my bachelor's degree in building construction and voracious reading since high school including Frank Lloyd Wright's autobiography, my uncle being a designer/stylist at Ford's etc). Since then my specialty has been uncovering and helping buyers and sellers find and promote, purchase and sell  "modern" design properties. I love all good design but my heart is in design that is ahead of its time and now being reborn/rediscovered/re-invigorated: from DeStijl/Mondrian to Bauhaus to streamline moderne 1930's to "Glass House" to postWWII "Space Needle" John Entenza/Arts and Architecture magazine/Case Study to mid-century martini "Jetsons" Boeing707 era swank, (hopefully not TOO "kitschy"), on up to new clean thinline/slimline minimalism and maybe now some raw rusted steel plate dark color industrial wasteland "warm" style. Particularly in architecture but it spills over into interiors, remodeling, furniture, staging, art, vehicle, industrial, lifestyle textile design etc). Join our consortium!

Comments: for 4611 NE 75th St in View Ridge, pictured above:

Simply sublime! Clean lines of true mid-century modern architecture speaks volumes with this modestly proportioned home. Endless walls of glass create seamless transitions between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The living & family rooms are centered on the double sided fireplace and the open kitchen looks out to a spacious backyard replete with koi pond, lush gardens and a Japanese inspired tea house designed by conceptual artists SuttonBeresCuller. A home, garden & backyard retreat to treasure!

People say and the owner agrees that this house is furnished and has the feel of a hip urban boutique hotel, but it is 2,910 sq feet on a viturally infinite lot backing to greenbelt. You cannot "date" this house, architect Milton Stricker had the integrity to not be swayed by momentary "fashion" or "style" but instead stayed consistent with respect to the design essence and philosophy of the person he actually worked with, you may have heard of him: Frank Lloyd Wright, you can see Mr. Stricker's "homage" to FLW in these photos, price is $650K, NOW SOLD, closed August 2013:

The above Stricker house is located in the Scenic Hill/Highridge, deluxe area, of Kent, easy access to Bellevue, Airport, Southcenter, Sounder Train, etc.
Tom: cell/text: 206-841-0003  moderntom@yahoo.com
The house is 2,910 sq ft of heated finished area, completely new condition, current architect/owner spared no expense whatsoever, he spent $60K just on the new upstairs roof alone, adding some 21 inches of super-insulation.
Additionally he added ductless individually zoned heat pumps which drastically cut the heat bills virtually in half.
New wiring, it's definitely of the condition of a new house, but way beyond average quality.
Two massive stacked gas fireplaces, 2 living rms, loft with 16 foot tall ceilings and 17,000+ sq ft lot on that protected greenbelt. Top of line Viking appliances, 3.5 bathrooms, marble, many cool invisible mitered corners windowglass, it's like owning a brand new Frank Lloyd Wright house! Worth the drive!

Tom here with Madison Partners Real Estate. As I mentioned earlier this month, the NWMLS is no longer allowing brokers like myself to put up photographs or other info on other agent's listings without that agent's head broker's WRITTEN permission (they generally seem to not want the competition so often say "no" although some are excited and happy but I couldn't get "written" permission in a timely manner anyway, certainly not on the weekend when I do my updates). But, I still can SEND OUT to YOU via email ANY listings I want, so for now you'll have to give me your email address and I am free to send you a link I create that can contain any and all listings I want, of which I will use my "eye" for cool modernist architecture to do my selecting, just like before only I email them to you instead of posting them here for the whole world to see. Email me to join my mailing list and I will send them out to you directly: moderntom@yahoo.com , thanks! (I won't share this list with any nonSeattleModern people)
For now, all I can do here, besides showing sold samples of my work, is list the MLS numbers of those that meet the "modern" or "NW Contemporary" criteria and architectural design potential. You can still see most everything like you used to but you'll have to copy and paste in the mls numbers:

For St Patty's Day March 17th, 2013: here's your mls numbers:
