4 European-Inspired Styled Homes

By Alyssa Morrison |

For those who love the idea of traveling through Europe, but aren’t quite ready to buy a villa of their own overseas, there are many homes across the Pacific Northwest that draw inspiration from the architectural history of the old continent. Today, we look at four such homes for sale from Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, inspired by Western European architecture, but ideally set in some of the metro area’s most desired locations.

French Country-Inspired

415 84th Avenue NE, Medina | View property details →

Bienvenue à la maison! From the home’s stone exterior, its wrought iron accents on the patio, and its soft, French country colors that invigorate the bedrooms of this Medina estate, its styling is certainly inspired. With flowing spaces from the epicurean kitchen to the sunny living and dining spaces, it all lends itself to effortless entertaining and the finest quality of living. Stay outside just a little longer to enjoy the views of the gardener’s garden and the magnifique sunset and Lake Washington views. It’s a touch of Provence in Medina Heights!


1625 Federal Avenue E, Seattle | View property details →

The next best thing to residing in an estate of this caliber in Spain? How about living on Seattle’s Capitol Hill, a part of the urban landscape in one of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods. There’s colorful tilework, wood-beamed ceilings, and wrought iron detailing. From the home’s exterior to the terracotta-style roof to its breathtaking courtyard typical of a Spanish estate, this Edwin Ivy legacy home nods to its historic inspiration. And while significant, it doesn’t fall into the trap that some historic homes might: this home lives for today with a fantastic floor plan, incredible amenities, and a killer indoor-outdoor flow. 


17915 Normandy Terrace SW, Normandy Park | View property details →

Tudors are abundant across Seattle’s most affluent neighborhoods, and for good reason: the style is striking, yet traditional, and the interiors with their rounded doorways add comfort amid luxury. In this Normandy Park waterfront home, the steeply pitched roof with its gable roof line adds to the home’s striking curb appeal. Inside, the decorative fireplaces and Tudor arches add tradition to modern amenities. The home’s renovations seamlessly blend modernity with the home’s refined character. Its significance is not only in this estate’s style, as the second house ever built in Normandy Park, it exudes a sense of history and opulence that will captivate even the most discerning resident. 

European-Styled Swimming Pool

Make your European retreat a dip in your own pool. This beautiful Seward Park estate features a European-style swimming pool complete with mosaic tile details, a stone deck, a waterfall spa, and an enclave gated garden. This 1914 Craftsman is one of the original Seward Park homes near the storied park, and with its recent upgrades, it is a great entertaining house or private retreat with gracious living space.
