WHAT: The McGrath Residence was designed by Paul Thiry in 1952 for Vincent and Justine McGrath on a dramatic waterfront site overlooking Puget Sound, north of Golden Gardens Park. Construction was completed in 1954. The two-story, clear cedar-clad residence is nestled into the sloping site with expansive views to the west. The house has remained under the same family ownership since its construction and remains a largely intact example of Northwest Regional Modernism. More info on our website.

The house is currently for sale. View listing.

The family wishes to find a preservation-minded new owner who appreciates modern design.
