My Notes

This classic Colonial Revival home combines traditional New England charm with all of the amenities desired for contemporary living. The 7,200-sq.-ft. property also affords glorious views of Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains. It is ideally situated on a quiet street in Washington Park, a neighborhood prized for its proximity to the lake and Seattle's city center as well as its fine older homes. Built in 1936, the house underwent an extensive renovation by Schultz Miller Construction in 2002-2003. The remodel updated systems and endowed the home with more living space, a beautiful multi-level terrace, and a new attached garage. Recent updates have added a home office, a state-of-the-art audio/visual control system, and air-conditioning. A wrought iron gate set in brick pillars opens to a level front lawn with a bluestone and brick walkway. Exterior features of the 2-story house include clapboard walls accentuated by crisp white trim and shuttered, double-hung windows. A paneled front door introduces a main level with a center hall floor plan. The entry hall has wainscot walls and a staircase; it is flanked by gracious formal rooms. The living room has deep crown molding, fluted millwork, and an elegant wood-burning fireplace with a marble surround. A door flanked by sidelights opens to the view terrace, making indoor/outdoor entertaining an easy option. The dining room is endowed with corner cabinetry for china storage. Floors on the main and upper levels are hardwood; windows are fitted with plantation shutters throughout. The kitchen features traditional cabinetry, black granite counters and a center island. Top-of-the-line appliances include a six-burner Viking gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and KitchenAid compactor. An adjoining family room has a gas fireplace with a marble mantel and cabinetry for entertainment equipment. Corner cabinets with beveled glass afford more storage. Two sets of French doors afford water and mountain views and access to the terrace. Kitchen and family room floors are wide-plank maple. Serving the main level is a powder room with a granite-topped vanity and a tile floor original to the house. There are three bedrooms and two baths on the upper level. The master suite is abundantly endowed with closet space and built-in cabinetry. The three-quarter master bath has radiant heated hex tile floors, granite counters, and a built-in shower bench. The other two bedrooms are ample in size; one has French doors that open to a large east-facing balcony with stunning water and mountain views. These bedrooms share a full tile bath. The lower level offers a full daylight floor of additional living space as well as a fourth bedroom. A new home office has built-in cabinetry with two large desks and computer stations. At the foot of the stairs is a spacious playroom with built-in cabinetry and counters topped in granite. Accessed from the playroom is a utility room with laundry facilities, a work sink, gas furnace and large capacity hot water heater. 

What I love about the home

A wide center hall leads to living space added in the remodel. The hallway has built-in bench seating, a wall of glass display cabinetry, and a door that opens to the terrace and back yard. Located off the hall is a three-quarter bath with rare blue marble counters and floors. At the end of the hall is a large media room with surround sound and a state-of-the-art Crestron audio/visual control system. The system accesses an extensive music library that will remain with the house. Completing the lower level is a splendid wine cellar with rosewood racks and a herringbone-patterned floor fashioned from antique French tiles. Gated stairs in the media room lead to an attached 2-car garage, also accessed from the alley. An area in front of the garage provides additional off-street parking space. Both the garage and lower level areas created by the 2002-03 remodel have radiant heated floors. The house was fully air-conditioned in 2007. The multi-level terrace provides spectacular views and an inviting setting for outdoor living. The 1,600 sq ft. terrace has brick walls, white railing, and Pennsylvania bluestone pavers. A built-in Viking gas barbecue grill flanked by black granite counters is located on the upper level. The lower level has a built-in wood-burning fireplace with gas starter, bluestone bench seating and a fountain. Adjacent to the terrace is a level lawn surrounded by a high privacy hedge. The backyard is fully enclosed, with gated walkways connecting front and backyards on each side of the house. Lushly planted grounds have lovely mature plantings, including a magnificent old wisteria that drapes a trellis on the back side of the house. This distinguished residence is only minutes from Lake Washington and the village-like amenities of Madison Park. It is also easily accessible from downtown Seattle.
