Take A Tour Of This Time Capsule Mid-Century Home Selling For $2.4 Million

The mid-century aesthetic is having a resurgence at the moment. Many people are taking inspiration from the architectural and furniture style to incorporate them into their own homes. The style rose to prominence between the 1930s and 1960s and was largely influenced by architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, says My Modern Met. The focus of mid-century modern was a futuristic aesthetic that emphasized function.

Mid-century homes feature clean lines and floor-to-ceiling windows. This architectural style was most characterized by the minimal decor and a connection to nature. All of these features are valued in homes today. Listed on Realtor is one of the most spectacular examples of mid-century modern architecture. This $2.4 million dollar home is located in Burien, Washington, and was restored to show off the original features in all their glory. At 3,173 square feet and build in 1957, this home is a true masterpiece and time capsule of a beloved architectural style.

Surrounded by Nature

The Pacific Northwest is often boasted as one of the most beautiful regions in the United States. Here you'll find varied landscapes that include volcanoes, mountain ranges, tropical and coastal forests, and tons of waterways, according to Thought Co. Outside this home, you'll be surrounded by some of this natural beauty. You'll feel like you're in your own private forest from the moment you arrive. The entire property is encircled by tall, lush trees.

But you'll also have unmatched views of the famed Puget Sound with its glittering blue waters. In the distance, you'll have views of mountain ranges as far as the eye can see. From this home, sunrises and sunsets are unmatched. You'll have three decks to enjoy being surrounded by nature, per Realtor. You can access one off the main level and another across the yard. The main bedroom also has its own deck. A private courtyard off the family room provides another space to enjoy the outdoors.

Sleek Original Design

Throughout this home, you'll find a stunningly sleek mid-century design with modern touches that highlight the original architecture. The current owners painstakingly and thoughtfully restored the home for twelve years, reported Realtor. You can see the love they put into the home in even the smallest details. The kitchen features cabinets rebuilt to look like the home's original cabinets. But these original features are highlighted by modern appliances.

The sleek design also compliments the airy feel of the open-concept living space. According to a survey reported by Rocket Homes, 51.2% of Americans prefer an open layout.

Connect to the Outside

Even the powder room off the kitchen has views of the water below.

You won't have to do much decorating since each of the bedrooms has large windows that have either water or wooded views. Skylights flood the center of the home with natural light. Per Realtor, the basement is a daylight basement, which means you can walk outside rather than being underground. Even places with a lower elevation have high-set windows to allow in sunlight.
