When even the guest house has a theater screen you know you’re in luxury.
An impressive 7,587 square foot two story has hit the market in Woodway at $3,095,000. It has four bedrooms and five bathrooms - and lots of leftover space for the niceties like nanny’s quarters. What it really means is that every room has room, no need to squeeze into any spaces, no shoe-horning necessary.
Step back outside and notice the expansive covered entrance that has marble flooring, a fountain, and a koi pond. It is large enough, and thanks to skylights, light enough to double as a NW veranda.
As you step inside, the formal spaces open up thanks to square footage and tall ceilings. Applaud their use of art throughout the house. Whether it stays or not, or is your style or not, the paintings fit their spaces well.
Make sure to visit the rich office/den/library which can be closed off for solitude and uninterrupted reading.
When you need that inevitable break, head to the wine cellar. Don’t forget your key because it’s locked with a deadbolt. Maybe someone finally tallied the value of all those bottles.
Outside is about two acres of lawns and gardens that wrap around a pool, include a large gazebo, and the guest house.
One measure of its livability is that the property hasn’t been on the market since 1997. Some mansions flip frequently, possibly because careers shift so rapidly; so, it is refreshing to see some stability and evidence that someone appreciated the space enough to stay. That makes it that much easier to collect that much art and wine.
