Built in 1954, this split-level mid-century ranch house has been redone while preserving some of the 1950s flair that made it unique. The 3,360 square foot place, with four bedrooms, and four and a half baths, is listed for $1.185 million, which, after the cost of the renovation, is just a little bit above the $835,000 the owner spent on the place in 2014. It’s a buyer’s market people!
Highlights of 1640 NE 104th Street include an expansive living room with 18-foot-high pine beam ceilings, and one of those fabulous iron fireplaces that you see in sunken living rooms and retro bachelor pads. Speaking of sunken things, there’s actually a sunken dining room, and the original kidney-bean-shaped pool has been preserved. A spectacular grand staircase leads up from the living room to the bedrooms, and a wall of decorative stonework graces the front facade.
