Pure and unadulterated, mid-century modern architecture set along the South Seattle edge of Lake Washington. Original finishes, appointments and appliances remain, as installed in 1966. True devotees of the modern architectural style will find this opportunity, if not a must-acquire, at the minimum, a must-see! Custom-designed, specific to its lot, in the 1960’s and completed in 1966 to the standards of a Boeing engineer who commuted to work in Renton, in his 1959, 14-foot Glasspar runabout until 1971. Beyond 1971, the home was, lightly used, as a weekend getaway and boat moorage. Hence, the like-new condition of the home. Easterly views across Lake Washington to Mercer Island, South Bellevue and to the Cascade Mountains beyond are impressive by any standards. Vistas, to be enjoyed from virtually every room of this home, to include its finished garage and shop. Time to rise-and-shine! How about a quick, half-hour, jet-ski ride? Refreshed and ready for breakfast but not quite ready to cook? Well, wander one-half block south to the Stone House Cafe' and let them whip up a scrumptious bite (Realtor tested, Realtor approved). What a great way to begin your day! An engineer and inventor, Mr. Lea was precise and meticulous. He was involved from design to implementation of his dream home. His care for this home for over a one-half century was far above average! The new steward will benefit from an impressive collection of records, pertinent to the home. Frankly, opportunities this grand are a rarity. Don't risk the disappointment of letting this opportunity pass!
