I always drive by this unique looking house on 164th Street SW between Highway 99 and I-5 on the north end of Lynnwood. It’s a beautiful old home that appears to have been abandoned for awhile. Today I noticed some land use signs in the front.
Avalon Communities, which owns the adjacent Avalon Brandemoor, plans to build a five-building apartment complex on the lot. Snohomish County is reviewing their plans to see if county roads can handle the increased traffic. The public comment period ends May 10.
Avalon purchased the 3.4-acre lot last month from the Blevins family for $2.6 million. The home was built in 1967 and looks like it has a lot of history.
A local woman recently visited the property and posted her photos on Flickr. There’s a lot more to the property than you can see from the street.
