The 5-BR estate located at the water's edge on Webster Point is known as being the last large project that leading Pacific Northwest architect Lionel Pries ever built. Along with his wife Helen, businessman & controversial art patron Max Gurlich called it home until his death in 2009. The grand Northwest-style house is on the market and, as you might expect, it won't come cheap. $5.9M is the asking price and it's well earned. The home boasts terrazzo floors, vaulted ceilings, Shoji-style window screens and of course blisteringly-good views from just about every room. While some features tow the line on this side of vintage (like the old school stereo unit), others feel in desperate need of updating (Hi, linoleum...). A final statement from a local legend, hopefully it continues to tell the story Pries intended regardless of how it's adapted.
