A modern contemporary in Renton lists for $1.3M

A sauna, wet bar, and koi are ready to help relaxation

Via Windermere

Even the second kitchen looks grander than most kitchens. That’s the sort of thing to expect in this $1,295,000 modern contemporary in Renton.

The main kitchen is worthy of its own tour. It is large, as can be expected. The cabinets are a deep brown that matches the hardwood flooring. Marble counters and a mosaic tile backsplash hold colors that make the transition to the stainless steel appliances, and white paint scheme.

The finale is a set of windows bringing in more light than usual thanks to a solarium arrangement. In the midst is a bright red centerpiece: the gas range.

Rough-textured walls abolish the monotony of traditional flat white walls. Grey and red accent walls help define individual rooms. High ceilings and a large flagstone fireplace are typical of a 1979 build.

The essentials in this 4,660-square-foot house include five bedrooms and four bathrooms. A couple of luxuries are the sauna and a wet bar. Some days those may seem more like necessities.

Undoubtedly, the location carries a lot of the value. Views across Lake Washington to the Olympics are a great reason for lots of windows and a great deck.

Even without the views there’s plenty of attractions on the 9,990-square-foot property. Pet owners can appreciate the dog run. Find peace and quiet (and some inevitable weeding) in the gardens.

Gardeners can dive into the greenhouse that helps support the impressive gardens. The garden on the street side of the house is extensive, built from native perennials, hardscape, and a water feature that leads to a koi pond. Play and entertain backed by views.

For an extra level of privacy, a gated entrance helps create a sanctuary.
