Pedigreed Midcentury Modern in Seattle Won 'Home of the Year' in 1964

Ibsen Andreas Nelsen was a prominent figure in Northwest architecture in the midcentury, best known for designing the Museum of Flight and the Inn at the Market. The AIA Seattle Gold Medal winner also had a ton of homes to his credit and one of them, this Medina 5-BR, just hit the market asking $2.18M. Not your average midcentury modern, this one's got a little extra Pacific Northwestern modernity to it with a hint of Asian influence. As you'd expect, plenty of open rooms, exposed brick, rich hardwood floors & floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the surrounding nature into the home. You also get the added benefit of beautiful bay views from both levels, including the master suite. There's also the requisite private dock because, well, you're in Medina after all. The listing says this was "home of the year" in 1964. Doesn't say who said that, but we'll take their word for it.
