Split-Level Splendor

House styles, like shoe styles or hair styles, they come and go. For example, it’s hard for us to imagine why anyone would want to lower the ceilings in their vintage Victorian home, but I’ve seen it unfortunately done enough times to understand it was once a fashionable trend. And have you noticed that here in Seattle mid-century rambler homes are desirable – super cool even, once again?

Perhaps split levels can make a come back, too. Last week, I was involved in selling this one in West Seattle. The buyers have definite plans for making it more modern. After initially rejecting it as not appealing, they came back to it because of how practical it is for their family of five, lots of finished space, upstairs and down.

And if you are a non-believer, check out this split level for sale in Mount Baker. Opened up and bedecked in all white, it feels completely modern, stylish, chic even. Martha Stewart could live here.
