4035 SW Downs View Ct -- 4 Beds 3.1 Baths 3242 sq ft Downs View Ct is also a mid century of the best kind, but this one is on two levels. I love a house with deep eaves and this one has them, offering shade where it’s needed on a hot sunny day. Built into a fairly steep hillside, this house has a large driveway capable of parking 6 cars in addition to the double car garage. On entering the house one is struck by the wooden beams, the vaulted ceiling and various niches the architect (Alvin Dryer, Seattle) designed into his plan. Again this house has been updated but all the original character is still here and it is lovely! The master is on the main level, and all other bedrooms are downstairs. Because the house is on a hillside most of the yard has been designed with gravel walkways around mature shrubbery and trees. There are raised beds on a more level part of the yard which could be grassed over if desired. The neighborhood also has a communal salt water pool & clubhouse. Priced at $1,350,000 I don’t think this will sit for long.
5550 SW Dogwood Lane -- 5 Beds 3.1 Baths 5011 sq ft Dogwood Lane is full of lovely homes, clearly well cared for, it’s a pleasure to drive the whole neighborhood if you’re into that sort of thing. This home is also on two levels with a huge covered deck that leads down to a fireplace and hot tub and finally to the grassy yard. There’s not much ‘mid century mod’ going on inside this house, built in 1971, it has none of the vaulted ceiling or open plan living seen in the previous two homes. The kitchen is nice, large and has a family room with fireplace, that opens to the deck. Off the foyer a formal living room leads to a formal dining room which in turn swings back around to the kitchen. There are bedrooms on both levels and a large req room along with another bonus room downstairs. Priced at $1,495,000 and just over 5,000 sq ft, if you need space this house has it.
I am both a Realtor and Interior Designer. I have transitioned from simply selling homes to selling what makes homes beautiful.
