There's no shortage of midcentury modern homes in Puget Sound but sometimes you can't help but take notice when a certain classic hits the market. Located on the shores of Lake Sammamish with Mount Rainier views ahead, this four-bedroom, 2,580 square-foot residence is not only a stunning example of the architectural era but also provides a great opportunity for luxury waterfront living.
The two-level, 1943 house sits atop a rocky plateau just above the sandy beach and private dock below. It features 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and a loft-style main area that takes advantage of the natural light to the fullest. A free-standing fireplace tucked towards the rear of the living space makes for a cool and cozy spot to lounge out indoors. The master bedroom is located on the main floor to help take advantage of the indoor/outdoor lifestyle the home is all about. The kitchen is retro classic and there's still plenty of wood-paneled wall accents and other touches to remind you of the home's original era.
Outside, an Asian-inspired patio area makes for a welcome respite tucked away with the greenery. Or when you're looking to entertain, the huge deck overlooks the lake and leads right out into the water ahead.
