A 3,500 square foot, two story modern house from 2014 sits on a 5,040 square foot lot on Sunset Hill and helps it live up to its name with views across the water to the Olympics in the west.
From the large double front doors and into the entry you step into a house with a mix of wood to walk on, steel to support your climb, and walls that don’t distract as you head into formal living spaces.
It works from a great room layout with the living room closest to the gas fireplace and the view, to a dining area large enough for moderate dinner parties, to a kitchen along the far wall. Winter tones thanks to stainless steel appliances, grey cabinetry, and white counters and tile back splash blend into a work station that doesn’t intrude on entertaining, but provides six burners and a double-wide refrigerator to keep the party going.
To the side, is an other, more intimate sitting room that shares a see-through gas fireplace with the more formal spaces.
Yet another gas fireplace sits in the west wall of the master bedroom, one of four bedrooms. Windows on either side let the sunsets shine in.
The master bathroom is rectilinear, white with grey accents, and rather rectangular shower, tub, and sink. At least one of the other three and a half bathrooms are more pedestrian.
With sunset views it make sense to build in decks and balconies that create more living spaces outside. Sometimes a pane of glass, no matter how clean, can get in the way of the view. Step outside to sit, catch some fresh air, and enjoy, after you’ve completed the deal for the $1,995,000 listing price.
