New Listing!- Mt. Baker View Estate

We are thrilled to blog about our newest Bennion & Deville listing, a fabulous 1911-built home thats situated on an expansive corner lot in Mount Baker – the kind of place, reported The Seattle Times, “where a few neighbors hire a band, strap on their tool belts and erect a stage in the park to provide free concerts for the neighborhood. Where people get together to fight City Hall or to dog a major petroleum company over a contaminated site. Where the community club hosts a neighborhood potluck for 300 and a biennial Home Tour requiring 150 volunteers — and also raises around $100,000 a year in college scholarships.”

Take a peek through 2810 Cascadia Avenue South….

#Throwbackthursday – Then & Now

In keeping with #TBT (throw back thursday) hashtag fad, we found this little throw back photo of one of our Bennion & Deville current listings in an architectural books titled Homes and Gardens of the Pacific Coast Seattle 1913 …

ThenNow harvrd blmt
Book caption reads: “detail of central section, which is flanked by symmetrical wings. Architect was Carl F. Gould, who designed not only many beautiful homes but also most of the Gothic Revival-style buildings of the University of Washington. This house was built in 1910 for the Francis Brownell family.”

This architectural book was published in 1974 so our assumption is that this photo must be at least 40 years old.  It’s clear that this residence looks much the same as it did all those years ago, improved only by the addition of a spa with a mosaic glass wall tucked just under the round arch beneath the expanded stone terrace.  It’s always wonderful to see an architecturally significant and historic home like this so beautifully preserved with updates that show ingenuity and thought.

Happy almost Friday!

Newly Listed – Exquisite Highlands Estate

This exceptional estate property offers an architecturally significant home, nearly three acres of exquisitely landscaped grounds and sweeping views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. It is privately situated in The Highlands, one of Seattle’s premier gated communities, prized for its distinguished residences, pristine woodland surroundings and accessibility to the city center.

Highlands Home Seattle Bennion & Deville

A large courtyard with a fountain in the center, bordered by trained ivy covered walls and ringed by towering evergreen trees provides a spacious and dramatic parking area in front of a stately 8,790-sq-ft home. Built in 1937, the house was designed by H.T. Lindeberg, one of this country’s most prominent residential architects during the first half of the twentieth century. Lindeberg is remembered for the large country estates and suburban villas he designed for some of the leading professional and cultural leaders of his era, most located on the East Coast and in the Mid West. This house, a fine example of the celebrated architect’s elegant, refined style, has the added advantage of a glorious water and snow-capped mountain backdrop unique to the Pacific Northwest.
