Hey, Remember the ’80s?










Built in 1988, this Manuel Zeitlin-designed home near Bellevue is scheduled to hit the auction block this Thursday, July 23, at 11 A.M. Yes, there’s some glass block and the arrangement of bannisters overlooking the living room looks a bit organ loft-y, but the design has aged pretty well, really. There are 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths on 3 levels—4,532 square feet in all. Throughout, natural light and views of the surrounding 22 acres of woods pour in through large windows, glass doors, and skylights. Asking price for this very private property is $1,189,000.

Something to keep in mind: This pack measures 11.4 by 7.9 inches–too small for textbooks or binders, but roomy enough for preschool/kindergarten accoutrements.  Need something bigger? There are deals to be had on the original, full-size Kånken too.
