This is, pretty much, midcentury modern in a nutshell. Built in 1954, it is described as one of the most significant architectural designs constructed in Spokane, reflecting both the Harvard Graduate School of Design where Bruce Walker was educated and the influence of Southern California designers such as Craig Ellwood, Gregory Ain, Raphael Soriano and Charles Eames.

Best of all though is the authenticity of this place. It looks largely unchanged over the decades with some amazing period features. Everything from the coloured panels outside the property through to the fitted furnishings and quirky ornamental pieces inside. That could be because this place has never previously been offered for sale.
