From the 1940s to the 1990s, architect Roland Terry helped define the Pacific Northwest approach to modern architecture. You know his work if you’ve ever been to Canlis Restaurant or Nordstrom’s downtown store. He designed plenty of homes as well, including the stunning luxury residence in Shoreline’s The Highlands that just listed for $5.25M.
Custom built in 1998, this five-bedroom, 9,508 square-foot home includes seven bathrooms, ensuring that no one will ever have to hold it. The design of the home actually creates two wings and balances formal and informal spaces with public and private areas in each. Yes, this is the kind of home that you buy when you need "public spaces" within it.
Beautiful stone design in the main living area, accented with 11-foot box-beam ceilings and eye-catching wood floors. The main dining room really is a room, or you can use the casual one by the kitchen. Don’t worry, there’s a caterer’s area when you need the extra space.
Bedrooms and suite spaces exude a classic luxury feeling and whenever you’re feeling boxed in there’s a terrace waiting nearby. The 3.67-acre property outside the doors includes an expansive sloping lawns, mature plantings and formal gardens.
