Seattle Modern Homes for Sale

Seattle and the Pacific Northwest is a hotbed of modern and contemporary design, with a unique emphasis on energy-efficient and sustainable architecture.
From affordable modern homes in Seattle to million-dollar custom homes, multi-family residential and mixed-use buildings, green building and sustainable approaches to urban living, you’ll find it all here at Northwest Modern Homes.

Many homebuyers today appreciate the modern asthetic and are interested in purchasing and living in a home that has a modern and streamline feel. This does not necessarily mean a new home, as the Bauhaus and Modern Home design began in the 1920’s, so when we speak of “Modern Homes”, they may not necessarily be new but have the clean lines and open spaces that epitomize this kind of design aesthetic. We can be discussing homes built from the 1930's to today.

1954 Urban Gem on Queen Anne by Architect Robert Reichert for sale


This urban retreat is a very unique mid-century modern classic designed and built by Architect Robert Reichert. Originally, it was covered in black & white geometric shapes, but that was painted over to blend into the neighborhood better. 

Mr. Reichert built this home and resided here with his mother. 

Here are photos of the interior: 
From City of Seattle website: This unusual modern house sits on a small (1800 square foot) corner lot, surrounded by trees and shrubs. The house is only 1,080 square feet, on an unusually small lot. It has a steep shed roof with a very shallow eave; the high point is on the east side. There are few windows, with three on each side elevation and two on the east; windows are all aluminum frame. The west elevation, fronting on the street has the garage door but no windows. A sliding glass door opens into the rear parking area, which appears to be the main entrance; there is no door on the street. Cladding is horizontal wood, painted off-white.
Harvard-trained architect Robert Reichert also designed the Egan House (named for its first resident, Willard Egan, a retired admiral of the US Navy) in 1958, which has now been bought and restored by Historic Seattle (more info here.)




Here are some great photos of the interior on Remodelista in an article, Living in a Seattle Architectural Landmark.
