This home is like a tree house floating above the hillside at the end of a private, dead-end street. It was completely rebuilt in 2010 to maximize inside/outside livability, beautiful design, the stunning views, and natural landscape.
The quality is unmatched: a Craftsman exterior with wide trim and pillars, professional landscaping that blends the built environment with adjacent green spaces, and interior architectural detail (arched doorways, nooks, coved ceilings, fine woodwork). The main floor flows from formal entry to living to dining to kitchen to family room and office.
The open kitchen is stunning. In addition to the professional grade appliances and highly desirable layout, the glass west-facing wall of windows accordion to completely open the kitchen to the deck. Perfect for entertaining. The expansive Ipe deck includes a built-in gas barbecue, large hot tub, benches, outdoor dining, and planters. The deck also incorporates shade, cover, wind screens, and a heating system that makes indoor/outdoor living feasible for three seasons of the year.
The upstairs layout is great as well—three bedrooms, a media/reading nook, laundry, two bathrooms, and a deluxe Master suite with ample closets, a luxurious bath, and private view deck. The view from here is the best in the house. The basement is ideal for guest quarters and recreation. The state of the art home theater is great for movies or super bowl parties. There is a separate kitchen and bedroom and the entire floor is a legitimate ADU with lower deck and French doors.
Attention to design even reveals itself in the inspiring, creative spaces for children of all ages, inside and out. The private wooded lot to the south has trails and a two-story tree house. It also has bedrooms, built-ins, and passageways that inspire Alice in Wonderland imagination and play.
The current owners built this home for the long haul. Because they “own the street” in front of the house, two parking spots are guaranteed. The undeveloped lot to the south is also part of the deal. When they sold the lot to the west, they retained rights to control the height of trees and buildings. In other words, this view can never be lost to development. During the rebuild they invested heavily in core systems: geotech, energy, foundation, water, and drainage, and whole-house wiring, bringing everything up to code and beyond, to the very state of the art.
The location above Fauntleroy and Morgan Junction offers easy access to local groceries and shops, the West Seattle bridge, and Lincoln Park. The home is a treasure. The new owner will enjoy years of sunsets, a unique private setting, and the benefits of thoughtful, exceptional design.
We look forward to answering any questions we can about this home. If we can schedule a showing or help in any way, please call.
