This fine estate property offers a magnificent Georgian Revival brick home, more than half an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds and panoramic views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Designed by noted architect Joseph Cote and built in 1915, the 6,270-sq-ft, 3-level home has a commanding presence. Extensive restorations, the latest completed in 2012, have provided new systems, desired amenities and sophisticated interiors. An inviting entry with hardwood floors opens to a gracious living room with a hand-carved, antique marble fireplace, exquisite moldings and a picture window that frames breathtaking water and mountain vistas. The formal dining room also enjoys sweeping views. The home, designed for entertaining on the grand scale, easily accommodates a crowd. An eat-in French country kitchen, expanded and remodeled in 2012, is a caterer’s dream. Top-notch appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator and 2 freezer drawers, 2 Bosch dishwashers and a LaCanche range with 8 burners, double ovens and a custom zinc hood. Other noteworthy features are a zinc-topped island and gorgeous Carrara marble countertops and floors. Also new are a mud room and home office, both positioned just off the kitchen. Several flagstone courtyards offer lovely settings for outdoor living and entertaining. One easily accessed from the kitchen has a built-in Weber grill and outdoor sink.
A grand staircase and a second set of stairs lead to the upper level, where there are three bedrooms, including a terrific master suite. The beautifully refurbished master has sweeping water and mountain views, a fireplace, dressing area and full bath plus an adjacent library. The other two bedrooms are served by one and three-quarter baths.
The lower level offers a media room, half bath and abundant storage. The expansive, two-level back lawn affords generous-sized lawns, ideal for football and croquet or elegant tented soirees.
