Wedgewood Mid-Century Gem
Our house was designed and built in 1953 by my dad, Ross Dimm. With thoughtful updates it still presents the essence of the mid-century aesthetic. 12 foot exposed beams are the center piece of the house as my dad was an engineer by trade. His vision created a one of a kind design with exposed brick in the country kitchen. 2 working wood burning fireplaces are brick faced. Sam, the deer over the fireplace has been there since the Seattle World's Fair. The back yard is unexpectedly large with a greenspace down to a very small creek. An in ground, tiny pool peeks out of the very back of the yard. Updates are ongoing periodically. Located in Wedgwood and next to a golf course the neighborhood has some ancient trees. Our yard looks onto the ravine of Thornton Creek.
