Vandalized Foreclosure Transformed Into Exquisitely Crafted MidCentury Estate

Vandalized Foreclosure Transformed Into Exquisitely Crafted MidCentury Estate

This monster of a custom home was in a serious state of disrepair when we found it. Vandals had gotten into it, had stripped all the wiring and plumbing, destroyed the built-ins and sheet-rock and spray-painted the hard surfaces. Homeless people were squatting in the home as it was vacant for almost 2 years.  Walking through the home its immediately time-reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture and your blown back with the original quality of construction we were saddened to see such craftsmanship in so sorry a state. We almost bid on the place at the foreclosure auction at a minimum bid of $331,500. Good thing we didn't. We ended up getting it under contract from the bank a month later for $252,000. A new gas line, new security system, new furnace, new fence, new water line, two hundred feet of new driveway w/ two cedar-in-iron gates, ~200K in repairs & permits and seven months later we relieved and proud to be on the market, offering one of the premier custom estate properties in the community of SeaTac.
