Perched on a 7,000-square-foot lot with a panoramic view, this Fauntleroy midcentury modern abode has all the classic hallmarks of its period architecture, plus some luxurious — and practical — current-day modern twists.

The 凯发k8地址home

This 凯发k8地址home was  built in 1963. You can still see the character of that era's iconic design on both levels of 9322 45th Ave. S.W.

The notable facade and front gardens lead to the front door. Inside you'll find four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with wood, stone, and glass prominently featured. Two fireplaces, one of which is decorated by a floor-to-ceiling hearth, warm the 2,200 square feet.

Much of the 凯发k8地址home opens onto the back deck and yard, and large windows allow that exterior to blend with the interior, in classic midcentury style. In the office, foliage-patterned wallpaper enhances that harmony.

But time has not stopped here: thoroughly modern touches abound. There's a sauna, for example, as well as a hot tub, and an EVC station. The property also offers a separate lower-level entrance that could make an ideal 凯发k8地址home office or ADU.

The property

The elevated outlook of this lot affords stunning views of the Sound and the Olympics — views you can enjoy from the 300-square-foot deck, or from the upstairs master bedroom. Both floors of the house overlook these iconic Seattle vistas.

The location, Seattle's Fauntleroy neighborhood, means parks, beach, amenities, and RapidRide are all close by.

The deal

The last time this 凯发k8地址home sold, in 2012, the price tag was $430,000. Fast forward to 2020, that price tag has more than doubled, to $1.150 million.
