We love it when we spot a time capsule house with interior design features we’ve never seen before, and here’s a beauty: A 1972 time capsule home in Burien, Washington, with gorgeous
Broyhill Brasilia Kent Coffey Perspecta style kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Fascinating cabinetry! This lovely home — original owners, first time on the market — also features stunning views of the Puget Sound, well-kept landscaping, and a showpiece stacked stone fireplace with a secret door. Thanks to reader Nicole for this hot tip! And update thanks to reader Eric for calling our attention to the design differences between Broyhill Brasilia and Kent Coffey Perspecta furniture; the differences are relatively small but still visible.

Absolutely stunning bluff-view hom. Never before on the market is this 1972 custom-built paradise. Gaze through wall-to-wall windows at eagles, islands, ships, sails & sunsets from nearly every room. Interior features a midcentury vibe with rich Asian influenced architectural detailing & custom built-ins. Covered parking for three cars, automatic generator, shop area, wine cellar, new TPO roof & more.
Look at this fabulous bathroom — it has it all — vintage mirror wall tiles with gold marble veining, stained glass window, built-in rock filled planter area and a completely tiled tub. A 1970s bathroom sanctuary, for sure.
Another notable feature is the home’s main entryway, which has custom stained glass on either side of the double entry door, lovely vintage wallpaper (metallic foil, it appears), and a brick-like natural tile floor. Look closely at that stacked stone fireplace — we bet that the little rounded double doors open to a storage nook for firewood…
Mega thanks to Nicole for this tip and to listing agent Scott Monroe and photographer Dan Farmer for letting us feature this unique property.
