Vintage Seattle Urban Retreat: A Private woodland mid-century sanctuary. Designed in 1952 by Albert Fenwick Simonson. Refashioned by House-Healers.

From Edward Krigsman’s listing: “A Seamless Blend of Old and New. Heron House is a private woodland creekside sanctuary designed in 1952 by Albert Fenwick Simonson and refashioned for 2016 by House Healers. The ingenious restoration artfully blends classic and original mid-century elements with a collection of historical architectural artifacts showcasing a century of Pacific Northwest history. Designed and sited to revel in two totally private Pacific Northwest woodland lots, Heron House is happily placed several blocks from world-class conveniences including a new regional transit hub.

Upland Level: Rough and Smooth. Heron House’s forested approach and soothing sounds of Thornton and Victory Creeks brings solace from a busy, noisy world. Inside, original cathedral ceilings finished in cedar, together with supple gray oak flooring and slate accents, define a generously proportioned main level. The architect’s colossal “wedge” fireplace – a sculptural form of a brick, copper, and mahogany – stands as a signature sentinel, while the classic 1950’s picture windows grant 360-degree views of the woodland setting.

A dramatic chef’s kitchen suggests casual dining as well as grand fêtes. Its centerpiece island, hewn from the hip of a Washington Sequoia redwood tree with live-edge, easily accommodates four or more, even while sharing its surface with a hefty 4 -burner Wolf range. Ample kitchen counters of cast concrete are illuminated by both LED. Under-cabinet lighting as well as by the array of vintage headlight-style theatrical lighting decorate all the living areas.”

Patti Payne from Puget Sound says: “The house at 1223 NE 108 th St. in Seattle’s Maple Leaf neighborhood looks like it could be Don Draper’s home in the acclaimed TV series Mad Men. It is a 3,300 square-foot gem – a mid-century creekside sanctuary with a history dating back to 1952. It is listed for sale for $1.1 million. Windermere’s Edward Krigsman has the listing.”
