An affordable Mid Century Modern is what landed us in North Beach. I wasn't much interested in the new construction moderns as a buyer, for several reasons. Not the least of which was shelling out over $550k for no yard.

Some of the new modern homes are incorporating design elements that translate well to mid century homes - which is why I was looking at them to begin with.

Normandy Park has some amazing mid century modern view homes at below median prices. If I was shopping based on price alone I'd have moved there easily.

Frankly, both of those designs are cr@p. Seattle has always had junk architecture. Even the expensive homes are poorly designed. Mercer Island is especially bad.

I've really come to love the mid century modern homes. I grew up in one, and never imagined that one day it would become so popular. That neighborhood is now one of the most coveted in Bellevue.

A site for mid century modern lovers: 360° Modern - The Source for Modern Real Estate. Some really beautiful homes there.
