In a recent feature on Curbed Seattle, Sarah Anne Lloyd invites readers to explore the “muraled master suite” of a charming abode in Wedgwood, currently listed by Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty broker John Madrid. As Lloyd writes, the home, which is situated just blocks from Matthews Beach, “is cute enough on the surface, with bright shutters and a collection of gables and dormers. The inside, of course, matches, full of wainscoting and hardwoods.” Yet the “crown jewel” of the home, she says, is the master suite, which offers wood paneled walls, built-ins, exposed beams, a fireplace, and a set of unforgettable murals.
In a recent Curbed Seattle feature, Sarah Anne Lloyd stepped back in time and into an historic home once owned by John Wallingford and currently listed with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) broker Eleanor Heyrich.

Built in 1907, Lloyd gushes over period details, from “a dormer and diamond-shaped window” to a “covered porch . . . bounded by square columns.”
