The original old-growth fir framing is on display, with vintage and commercial materials incorporated into the design: KERF Design built the library / media room display cabinets, there are tongue-and-groove hardwood maple floors, “Speed Rail” bars are used for railings and cabinet supports, and many delightful touches throughout create an eclectic, functional and streamlined environment!
Double glass doors provide an elegant entry (on quieter 73rd St) to the astounding open living space that can be adapted to a near-endless variety of living arrangements; it can be used for parties, studios, art display, house concerts, dances, open family living, or partitioned to suit your personal lifestyle! A grand central staircase is topped with a huge skylight, flooding the interior with light while maintaining privacy.
The luxurious master bedroom has windows on two sides, fully-tiled bath and separate shower separated by glass brick, double-sink vanity, and water closet!
The huge cook’s kitchen is fully equipped with a six-burner Viking gas stove with grill and double oven, easy-to-clean custom steel kitchen cabi- nets, two sinks, a plumbed Expobar espresso machine, Viking fridge, Bosch dishwasher, maple butcher-block coun- tertops, a large island with breakfast bar and windows overlooking the garden and patio. Two double-glass doors open to the patio and garden.
Up the grand staircase is another gloriously open space with a skylight and windows on all four sides! The Olym- pics and Cascades are both visible, and a bedroom, full bath, and mechanical room have been partitioned, but there are many other options available, such as converting the floor into an apartment. A covered deck runs across the east side of the space and a large kiwi vine frames the view. The owners had honeybee hives here!
Thoroughly redesigned and rebuilt with all new systems: plumbing, elec- trical, wood windows, cedar bevel siding, roof, earthquake retrofitting, and a new 4’ foundation under the two shear walls! There are two water heaters and two gas furnaces. A partial basement with outside entrance provides additional storage. This home offers a rare opportunity for loft- like living in a residential neighborhood!
