Location: Nine Mile Falls, Washington
A well-maintained midcentury modern home on ten acres of lakefront land in Nine Mile Falls, Washington, has come on the market, with many original details still intact. Designed in 1962 by Spokane architect Moritz Kundig (father of Tom Kundig of Seattle firm Olson Kundig), the Wallmark House has been in the same family since its construction.
The nearly 4,000-square-foot home boasts many elements from the era, including a broad, shallow-pitched roof with overhanging eaves, glass expanses, open living spaces, and the use of natural materials.
The open-plan great room is the highlight of the heritage-listed home, with terrazzo floors, a massive stone fireplace, beamed and paneled ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows facing lake views. On the opposite side of the double-sided hearth is a smaller family room.
A built-in shelving unit separates the living room from a large kitchen featuring original custom wood cabinetry. And on the other side of that is a skylit solarium with brick flooring, a wood-burning stove, and large windows. As for private quarters, there are three bedrooms and two baths.
Outside, a huge deck takes in gorgeous views of Long Lake, where the house enjoys over 700 feet of water frontage. Located at 14701 North Oxford Street, the historic property is offered at $675,000.
