So serene

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Edmonds, Washington

Price: $589,000

Update: As of June 21, this house has sold for about $150,000 over asking after fielding eight offers. A jewel indeed!

For a bit over half-a-million dollars, you can score a 1961 gem in the Evergreen state—it truly looks enchanting against a backdrop of huge fir trees, doesn't it? The three-bedroom, 1,868-square-foot Seattle-area house looks well-maintained by current owners, who’ve had the place for 14 years.

According to the listing, original mahogany and Japanese Sen wood cabinets have been preserved in "mint condition." Other notable features include brick fireplaces in the living room and kitchen, floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, and extensive decking wrapping around the home. There are also a few stone patios next to the house.

The lush 0.66-acre property is located in Edmonds, WA, a straight 30-minute drive north of Seattle. The house, now asking $589,000, was last sold for $265,000 in 2002, and it’s not hard to imagine that number rising in the future if Seattle is indeed following in the footsteps of San Francisco, real estate wise. Take a closer look at the house itself, below.
