For fans of Craftsmans what’s better than one Craftsman home? Two Craftsman homes. That probably makes this $3,598,000 Kirkland property a Craftsmen.
The house is listed as one Craftsman, but the layout is basically two buildings separated by a walkway. Setting the entrance farther back from the front means visitors are greeted by a view of Lake Washington when they walk into the entry.
A great curved wall of windows provides a panoramic view of Juanita Bay, which gives a different definition to a bay window. Formal spaces are arranged along a long wall of glass so gatherings have a backdrop of the water, the boats, and the weather.
Built in 2010, the house is modern on the inside, especially the kitchen which is set back but open to the views. Inside, there are five bedrooms and four and a quarter bathrooms in the 5,330 square foot space.
One room has a loft space, somewhat like a sanctuary. Maybe it’s the quiet spot for people who are avoiding the social swirl that is inevitable in such a house.
Three features are very modern. LEED Platinum certification of “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.“ The second is the fact that there are two offices instead of only one. That’s modern life, efficiency and productivity. For the third, there’s an ADU over the garage, just in case someone needs a separate space.
As nice as the house is, much of the value is thanks to the site. With 1.32 acres of waterfront and 95 feet of no-bank shoreline, the land and the lake are important features to enjoy. A private dock means the lake is for more than just looking at. It may be a bit chilly now, but wait a few months and enjoy an enormous wet playground in your backyard.
