seattlemodern.com for Madison Partners RE

MOST RECENTLY UPDATED ON DEC14th, 2014:
Welcome to THE ORIGINAL modernist architecture real estate site in the Northwest, going strong and updated weekly, most every Sunday evening! filtered by hand (that is: by my eye)... NOT by some automatic computer that doesn't "get it"... I've been doing this special selectivity architectural "niche" for over a decade. That is LONGER than anyone else. Accept NO subsititutes! Competent, enthusiastic real estate MANAGING BROKER 4 yr university degreed with honors graduating in Building Construction and ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN, employed by registered licensed architects in architectural firms for half a dozen years, drafting, designing, construction supervising, in addition to many of my own completed/supervised building projects. Here's my picks of homes below, homes with "NON-generic" distinct fun, with architectural character not cold not souless, not "cookie cutter", Listings: a very few in what Philip Johnson called the "International Style" to Streamline Moderne, to (mostly) Mid-Century Modern,  "Space Age" World's Fair vintage and beyond including select brand new architecture where I decide. I kind of skip over a lot of the 1980's/90's generally, with some noteable exceptions (those years seemed to have been generally the "UN-modern" years like big fat cornice, moldings on the outside upper edge for instance, and heavy trim etc.)
Call/text/email me: Tom Holst for more info or just to say hello or for questions or if YOU have or know of a special home I might want TO LIST for sale and/or if you have any interest in all things architecturally modern, ultramodern, quirky, "time capsules" "modernist", etc. Thanks! Tom Holst: (206) 841-0003 moderntom@yahoo.com

The MLS no longer allows me to upload pictures of other agent's listings (without the listing agent's brokers WRITTEN permission so, for the sake of timeliness on new listing you unfortunately have to input these MLS numbers here yourself, per the instructions further below, in order to see all the photos/descriptions. I give you lists of ten at a time MLS numbers. BUT, IF YOU COULD PLEASE, don't go to another agent or the listing agent but rather COME BACK HERE!!! CONTACT ME TO SEE ANY OF THESE OR OTHERS!
This is the max (TEN) MLS numbers you can input at the link below at any one time, see down this page for instructions on how to input and view all the photos and full descriptions of these really cool houses JUST LISTED FOR SALE:
New listings (mls numbers) for the week of: December 14th-21st, 2014: Just input these numbers at most any local real estate website that allows you to input MLS numbers directly (Zillow does NOT so choose a different one):
Some seasonal slowdown but here's ten that caught my eye as being "different":

This site features architecturally MODERNIST inspired mid-century and newer clean lines (or potentially with a little vision from you, I, and talented architects, designers, craftmakers, restorationists/remodelers, contractors, furniture, etc).
Real estate for sale around the general Seattle area, I try to do considerable "filtering" for you from the "generic" and the bland. This is the original modern architecture for sale website and is still going strong for over a dozen years. Call Tom at: 206-841-0003

Some examples to show you what the market contains and contained and what I have an "EYE" for, and I LOVE working with buyers who "get it" in regards to design and modernist appreciation such as this one on the market recently, built in 1958:

Accept no substitues. I'M THE ORIGINAL modern architecture real estate broker around these here parts GUARANTEED (the only one I know before me was down in LA in the eighties). PRE "Atomic Ranch" or "dwell" magazine. The book "Googie", (with an "i", not "google") back in the 1980's kind of got me started on this idea/concept (plus my experience as a licensed builder, my bachelor's degree in building construction and voracious reading since high school including Frank Lloyd Wright's autobiography, my uncle being a designer/stylist at Ford's etc). Since then my specialty has been uncovering and helping buyers and sellers find and promote, purchase and sell  "modern" design properties. I love all good design but my heart is in design that is ahead of its time and now being reborn/rediscovered/re-invigorated: from DeStijl/Mondrian to Bauhaus to streamline moderne 1930's to "Glass House" to postWWII "Space Needle" John Entenza/Arts and Architecture magazine/Case Study to mid-century martini "Jetsons" Boeing707 era swank, (hopefully not TOO "kitschy"), on up to new clean thinline/slimline minimalism and maybe now some raw rusted steel plate dark color industrial wasteland "warm" style. Particularly in architecture but it spills over into interiors, remodeling, furniture, staging, art, vehicle, industrial, lifestyle textile design etc). Join our consortium!

People say and the owner agrees that this house is furnished and has the feel of a hip urban boutique hotel, but it is 2,910 sq feet on a viturally infinite lot backing to greenbelt. You cannot "date" this house, architect Milton Stricker had the integrity to not be swayed by momentary "fashion" or "style" but instead stayed consistent with respect to the design essence and philosophy of the person he actually worked with, you may have heard of him: Frank Lloyd Wright, you can see Mr. Stricker's "homage" to FLW in these photos, price is $650K, NOW SOLD, closed August 2013:












The above Stricker house is located in the Scenic Hill/Highridge, deluxe area, of Kent, easy access to Bellevue, Airport, Southcenter, Sounder Train, etc.

The house is 2,910 sq ft of heated finished area, completely new condition, current architect/owner spared no expense whatsoever, he spent $60K just on the new upstairs roof alone, adding some 21 inches of super-insulation.
Additionally he added ductless individually zoned heat pumps which drastically cut the heat bills virtually in half.
New wiring, it's definitely of the condition of a new house, but way beyond average quality.
Two massive stacked gas fireplaces, 2 living rms, loft with 16 foot tall ceilings and 17,000+ sq ft lot on that protected greenbelt. Top of line Viking appliances, 3.5 bathrooms, marble, many cool invisible mitered corners windowglass, it's like owning a brand new Frank Lloyd Wright house! Worth the drive!
