This Saturday, April 28, get up close and personal with Seattle's modern homes.

The annual Seattle Modern Home Tour will run through seven modern houses in Seattle, Bellevue and Redmond from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Three of those homes are in North Seattle, including two in Fremont and one in Ballard. Ticket holders interested in the tour can meet the owners, designers and architects of some of the area's most interesting modern homes.

Hosted by the Modern Architecture + Design Society, the event is the seventh annual modern homes tour.

One Fremont home, on Ashworth Avenue North, is described as "A serene modern oasis on a small urban lot, the Ashworth House is a renovation and second-story addition over a cottage originally constructed in 1912."
