Seattle Designer Gives Her Tudor a Makeover

When Seattle Designer Judy Tall finalized her divorce, she packed up her belongings in Mercer Island and began the move to her newly purchased Tudor in Denny Blaine. According to the Seattle Times, she fell in love with the neighborhood and her master bedroom with an abundance of natural light, but wasn’t 100% sold on the rest of the place. She waited a year before remodeling, and says that “you have to know how you live in a house, and what works and what doesn’t.”

Before Tall became an interior designer she was an acupuncturist, and tries to brings elements of healing into play with her design concepts. She told the Times that whether you’re moving into a new space, or someone recently moved out or in, there are several emotions that come into play when redesigning or remodeling your home. Tall said that a large portion of her clientele chooses to remodel because they’re going through a life transition, and that’s just what she was going through when she decided to redo her home in Denny Blaine. From her choice in tranquil paint colors, to the picture rail below the coved ceiling, Tall tried to make each and every room in the place more cozy and comfortable for her to live in. She believes that every change serves a purpose, and should bring great joy to a living space. For more information about her Tudor design, visit the Seattle Times.

Denny Blaine Waterfront Home Sells

Denny BlaineDenny Blaine features some of Seattle’s most premier waterfront homes.  The lots are generally large and private and with the neighborhood’s proximity to Downtown Seattle the location is very desirable.  In addition, waterfront lots between Madison Park Beach and Madrona Park Beach are rare – there are only about 50 Seattle waterfront homes between the two beaches.

According to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service only two Denny Blaine waterfront homes have sold since the beginning of 2009.  Just this month this idyllic Denny Blaine waterfront home sold.  The 7 bedroom home was last listed for $4,990,000.  A rare transaction where waterfront is not often available.
