Move closer to our mountains and a white Christmas becomes much more likely. This NW Contemporary designed by Jeff Loveless sits on Snoqualmie Ridge with up-close views of the snowy Cascades. Spend about $2,000,000 and get in the mood.
With a stone exterior and tile roof, let the winter wonderland play outside while you enjoy it from inside a 6,040 square foot two story (with a 1,540 square foot basement). The five bedrooms and five bathrooms accommodate a big family or a lot of guests in Northwest luxury, not ostentatious and yet refined. That much room means enough space for a pantry, wine cellar, theater, and shop.
This time of year though, the living room’s high ceilings gives you the opportunity to have a tree tall enough to require a ladder to reach the top. It’s almost as if you have your own cathedral at home. By the way, it looks like someone’s been very good, or thinks they deserve a lot considering the length of one of those stockings.
Check out the kitchen and bathrooms for examples of a variety of stone and glass that flow into the spaces that aren’t custom cabinetry.
The lot is 0.38 acres, but that may not be as important as the location: within the gates of the Eagles Nest golf course community. For most of the snow-free part of the year, you’re lucky enough to have a golf course within walking distance. Check to see if a cart is required, though. For those times when the snow is falling, look out your bedroom window to get a hint of the ski report. Be glad for those times when you can golf in the morning, and ski in the afternoon.
