Sit yourself on the west side of Chuckanut Mountain and you get to enjoy views out to the San Juan Islands, as well as making the classic and scenic Chuckanut Drive part of your commute. The price for such a perch, $2,295,000.
The house is a combination of Frank Lloyd Wright, Northwest Contemporary, and minimalist. It is also relatively new, build in 2014. What would make someone leave such a place so soon? Natural and modern materials mix minimizing the bare white wall syndrome by replacing it with stacked stone and vertical wood facades. The flooring wraps hardwood around hardwood marking room borders to create unique settings. They mention the use of old growth cedar, a durable rarity.
High-end minimalism continues in the kitchen with slab countertops, modernistic fixtures, and stainless steel appliances that include a double oven. As with most rooms, don’t forget the view, which can also be enjoyed from a two seat counter extension that acts as a dining nook.
Can you work with distraction? The corner office’s view is of the islands. Enjoy getting your work done while watching weather play past the windows and ships navigate the passages. Don’t be surprised to see a raptor fly by.
From the tub in the master bath, again, take in the view - assuming the windows won’t fog. There is plenty of room for the three bedrooms and four bathrooms because the house has 5,478 square feet of living space in a long, thin, slightly canted floor plan.
Outside is hillside, an acre sitting a few hundred feet up accessed by a twisty road drivers in nimble cars may enjoy. The neighbors’ cars may be a clue whether a regular sedan will do. Of course, a little extra effort may be a small price for such a fine view.
