Set in a stunning Seattle hotspot, this waterfront townhome sits smack dab in the city but feels a million miles away. This luxurious home offers a combination of refined city style and relaxed coastal atmosphere that is hard to come by. Boasting views of the mountains and Puget Sound, this sweet urban retreat will wow you, if not for its natural views, then for its contemporary-cool interior design. Massive walls of glass, earthy materials and a sophisticated sense of style make this townhouse a real showpiece. But beyond looks, the home is also a great spot for entertaining, relaxing, and enjoying the finer things in life – nature, art and luxury, all in one.
On entry, you’re welcomed by a towering, double-height glass wall framed in natural wood – a warm, earthy complement to the cool Italian tile floors and chiseled granite fireplace. This open concept layout lets you enjoy every aspect of this interesting home, from its exterior environment to its airy interiors. The sun streams in, instantly warming up the space.
An eclectic mix of furnishings adds interest to this extravagant eyeful, which encompasses the living and dining area, kitchen, and a second-storey loft overlooking the entrance.
The dining area is its own little nook, defined by two drops in the ceiling that slightly separate it from the living room and the kitchen. A vibrant orange artwork gives this neutral open space a lively pop of color. The pendant light above the table is a modern sculptural focal point dangling overhead.
The kitchen is a delicious combination of natural and urban elements. While not extensive in its size, this gourmet kitchen has visual space that lets the eye wander, thanks to the home’s open plan. A wood-framed window above the sink boasts views of the lush, leafy trees outside, complementing the wood cabinets, marble countertops and tile floors spilling seamlessly from the living area.
On the other hand, the stainless steel appliances, hood fan and bar top give the kitchen a modern edge.
The bathroom brings a pop of drama to the home, featuring a melange of different tiles that all work with the earthy color palette used throughout the house. Different shades of brown highlight the various areas and functions of this small but well-planned space – the sink/vanity, the bathtub, and the toilet.
The upper-level master bedroom boasts a Zen-like appeal, the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of a busy day. The floor-to-ceiling glass wall slides open onto a peaceful patio walk-out.
Offering private views of the waterfront, this small but sweet terrace may well be the best seat in the house!
The master bath carries the bedroom’s Zen style, with neutral colors and materials. The vanity features a huge mirror that visually doubles this space and reflects the stunning views through the large window. A pair of sinks have a wonderfully raw, rocky shape, like two stones sawed in half.
A Japanese wood soaker tub just below the window invites you to lean back and enjoy the best of this lovely location.
A lower-level bedroom is a low key place for visitors to crash, or can be used as the homeowner sees fit. This versatile little space is almost cave-like compared to the rest of this open, heavily windowed home, offering privacy from the world.
Outside, this small garden sitting area is low maintenance, adding to the whole R&R look and feel of this home. Colorful blooms and leafy trees make it a great spot to sip your morning java or flip through your favorite books and mags in total peace and quiet.
Below, 30 feet of waterfront make this townhouse the ultimate nature-lover’s paradise. The lapping waves on the sparkling shoreline beckon on sunny days.
Though neighbors are nearby, you can’t help but feel like you’re a million miles away from it all.
