From back before the bubble, no, the previous bubble in 2000 is a house that excels at incorporating toys and entertainment. Plenty of places to play, as long as you can negotiate the $4,848,000 price.
Three floors of convex and concave walls face Lake Washington for this 6,510 square foot waterfront house. It is a natural place for water toys thanks to a private dock and lift. Most may overlook the most distinctive feature that will be much more obvious to a few. An exterior wall has been turned into a climbing gym that is far wider and taller than the indoor variety. An array of panels provide a variety of routes including an overhang and a chance to peak in one of the upper windows. Check the landing site for proper cushioning and belay points.
Step inside and be wrapped in 180 degree views of the lake and Mt. Rainier. The departure from long, flat, straight lines of windows is welcome.
Deep and rich colors that fill the massive kitchen wrap around a similarly colored island that can anchor any party.
If you’re active, you may want the gym equipment to stay, and maybe the long and wide table that looks perfect for storing and laying out maps of your next adventure.
For a more sedate sport, drop into the billiards room that is equipped with a bar and more storage.
It is okay to be a spectator, and there’s a theater for that, too.
Concentrate too much on the entertainment and it’s easy to overlook the fact that this is a four bedroom, four bathroom house.
But, then there’s the 100 foot of waterfront for the 8,989 square foot lot, and the six car (or even more motorcycles) garage which includes a lift (that probably can do more than store totes.)
