6 Favorite Features of This Unique Mid-Century Home with Backyard Getaway in Shoreline 

Surrounded by greenery and just minutes to top local conveniences, this 1,100-square-foot mid-century home shines with character and comfort. In addition to cheerful, light-filled living spaces (plus a daylight basement), you’ll also find 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. This property’s outdoor setting is especially captivating—terraced landscaping with native plants rests alongside charming patio spaces, and even a cedar wood-burning sauna. Located at 1237 NE Perkins Way Shoreline, WA 98155 and less than 1 mile to freeway access, bus lines, grocery shopping, parks, schools and more, this Shoreline home is listed for $584,000. 

Take a moment to explore my 6 favorite features about this mid-century home in Shoreline: 

1. Convenient location & surrounded by amenities in Shoreline’s North City neighborhood. 

At 1237 NE Perkins Way Shoreline, WA 98155, you’re merely minutes to a long list of conveniences, with areas like Downtown North City and Ridgecrest close by. Head south for less than 1 mile to reach grocery shopping, eateries, and local services, and head north for less than 1 mile to find even more grocery shopping options, a movie theater, dining options, etc. 

This particular location is also especially attractive for those who commute for work. To start with, Interstate-5 is only a 2-minute drive from home, which you can take south into the heart of Seattle. The 347 bus line picks up just down the street, which heads south all the way to Northgate. From here you can hop on the Link Light Rail, and take it throughout Seattle and even all the way to SeaTac International Airport. However, an even better option will be available in 2024—just 0.7 miles from home, the Shoreline 185th Station is opening up, making it super easy to hop on the Link Light Rail! 

2. Light-filled living spaces are a delight to spend time in. 

In the living room, vaulted ceilings soar overhead, while light pours in through strategically placed skylights. At the same time, a fireplace keeps things cozy on chilly winter nights. Imagine relaxing here during quiet evenings, or having friends over for get-togethers while you catch up. The dining area is just as lovely to hang out in—have fun styling this haven of gathering! 

3. The character-filled & convenient kitchen. 

In the kitchen, a smart design meets eye-catching style. Bold cabinetry accents add flair, while on-trend open shelving is perfect for displaying your favorite glassware, cookbooks, and plants. And, just like the rest of the living spaces, vaulted ceilings and ample natural light let this space feel even larger. 

4. Find flexibility in 2 bedrooms. 

One bedroom is on the main level, and one is downstairs in the daylight basement. Natural light fills each retreat, while the spacious square footage promises versatility in use. If you have an extra room, you might decide to transform it into a home office, hobby room, or den! 

5. Pristine bathroom shows off modern style.

In the beautifully curated bathroom, a thoroughly contemporary aesthetic lets wellness routines feel even more refreshing. Spa-inspired finishes sparkle, and open shelving does double duty by adding character and plenty of storage. 

6. Lovely outdoor space is a true oasis. 

In the backyard, a whole other world of wonder opens up. Terraced landscaping features native plants, offering a sense of privacy while providing a view from the patios. Set up a comfy outdoor dining set for hosting al fresco meals when the weather warms up, and create a cute outdoor living area on the adjacent patio, connected by a picture-perfect stone walkway. Host summertime soirées, sunbathe all summer long, and put your green thumb to work tending to shrubs, trees, and flowers. And, one of the major highlights here is the cedar wood-burning sauna that offers a truly fabulous way to rest, rejuvenate, and recharge!
