Location: Seattle, Washington
Seattle's Open House probably does have an open house in its future, as it was listed yesterday for $1.9M, but the title refers to the glass walls in back that open up on both levels (the top one pushes up and out, and bottom one rolls up like a garage door). Between those large indoor-outdoor spaces, the too-spare modern staging, and what the listing calls "HUGE art walls," the sale angle is clear: throw parties here.
A Curbed Seattle commenter who may or may not be one of the sellers says the "photos don't do it justice," and they do linger on the terrace/patio sections so much that it's hard to get a sense for this 2009 work by Seattle architect Eric Cobb apart from white walls. There are some cool metal curtains on the bottom floor, a modern built-in bunk bed in the kids' room, and a nearly all-stainless-steel kitchen.
The master bedroom is lofted above the kitchen and dining room, which is pretty interesting. You can't really go wrong with concrete floors and exposed steel, and there's a great deal of both.
