Ralph Anderson is remembered as being one of Seattle's great preservationist architects but he also had a lot of modern influence in his work as well, especially in the the homes he designed. While much of his earlier work was full of columns and sprawling open spaces, his later work tended to take on more a modern box aesthetic. That's evident here at 3809 E Alder Street in Leschi where a three-bedroom, 3,790 square-foot home designed by Anderson just hit the market asking $1,650,000.
Built in 1989, the residence is a blend of form and functionality. Austere from the outside, it's constructed with luxury living in mind behind those cement walls. An elevator connects all three floors. First stop, the living area that's bright and open, helped in part by 10-foot ceilings and large windows. It flows directly into a dining area and then to the kitchen. Upstairs, a huge master suite includes a gas fireplace, walk-in closet, and five-piece bath. A cozy patio space is tucked away outside amongst the trees.
The location is part of the deal as well. Located within a gate community, you're steps from the waterfront and the many restaurants and cafes situated within.
