This is something you don’t see everyday: a house being lifted up and moved 100 feet from its original location! The house is a beautiful example of mid-century modern design. It was designed by Bob Shields of the firm Tucker and Shields and built in the 50’s in the Lake Hills neighborhood of Bellevue.

Because it sits on land that is sub-dividable, the house was slated for demolition. But is was purchased by a visionary local developer who saw its significance and took steps to save it. Greg Walton has put a significant investment into moving and restoring the structure. The remainder of the lot will be developed with 3 new houses, carefully sited and designed to improve the environment. Stay tuned for more!
