There are some homes that stay true to the era in which they were built—homes like this midcentury modern time capsule or this Beaux Arts mansion. But more often than not, homes change over the years, adapting and transforming through the decades.
Take this six-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath house in Seattle, Washington. Located in the Eastlake neighborhood north of downtown, the home was first constructed in 1910. Then, in the mid-1950s renowned local architect Clayton Young remodeled the home, adding midcentury sensibilities to the mix.
The result is a three-story house with three peaked roofs reminiscent of a classic Victorian, but with 1950s style inside. Wood paneling, built-ins, and a central brick fireplace take center stage in the living room, and a galley kitchen has a mish-mash of updates and midcentury design. Plentiful windows let in light and provide views of Lake Union and the Cascade mountains. The home also features a mother-in-law suite with its own brick fireplace, kitchen, and bedrooms, making it a good option to rent out separately.
