Warm Beach home with lighthouse rotunda asks $1.45 million

This house is hypernautical

A beach house with nautical details is one thing, but a built-in lighthouse is another. This home in Warm Beach—along semi-sandy Port Susan waterfront, facing Camano Island—goes above and beyond with waterfront whimsy. It was built in 2007 with all the trappings of a high-priced waterfront home, like big view windows, a wine cellar, and a network of outdoor decks and patios, has a lot of fun with the style.

The most obvious feature is the lighthouse-styled rotunda protruding from the roof, complete with a light, built for 180-degree water views. The builders added some other offbeat touches, though: a secret office through a bookcase door, a light-up “tide pool” countertop with beachcombed goods under glass, and driftwood fencing on the beach-facing side. Playful design aside, with three bedrooms and four baths, two fireplaces, and a hot tub, it also functions as a luxurious, waterfront home.

19126 Soundview Drive is listed for $1.45 million via Windermere.

An office or library becomes a hiding spot thanks to a bookcase door.
The lighthouse rotunda is located at the top of a spiral staircase.
The tip of the lighthouse is built as a viewpoint across Port Susan.
The living room gets big, waterfront views, and has a fireplace for chillier nights.
A deck with a recessed hot tub is perfect for summertime gatherings.
The lighthouse adds interest to the home both inside and out.
