The three-story house has 3600sf of living space, tall ceilings, large windows, enormous roof deck, covered outdoor spaces and silent, clean radiant heating throughout. The modern interior was designed to maximize natural light, functionality, flexibility and privacy. Guests will appreciate the attention to detail throughout the house, like solid bedroom doors and insulated walls to create quiet spaces for sleeping, working, etc., fiber-optic internet, in-house audio system, as well as many custom architectural elements that make the house a special environment. The large bedrooms have a flexible layout and can be set up either for maximum occupancy, with 1 queen + 1 twin (or in the case of the penthouse, 1 king + 1 queen), or the additional beds can be removed resulting in spacious "master" bedrooms for the business traveler or couple. Each bedroom has a six-foot closet, full mirror, a small workstation and reading chair, tall ceilings and tons of natural light.
The first floor is perfect for entertaining large groups. The floor plan is wide open, with 10' ceilings and large windows on all sides. There is a large, well-equipped chef's kitchen complete with high-end appliances, zinc counters, and a prep island with butcher block counter tops and breakfast seating. If you plan on cooking during your stay, you will find the kitchen fun and efficient. The kitchen is stocked with the basics such as condiments, flour, sugar, rice, pasta, coffee, spices, etc. There are ample place settings and stemware for hosting large dinners. Your hosts are NW foodies that love to cook and entertain and are glad to help with provisioning recommendations or any cooking equipment that might be needed to feed your group. There is a BBQ just outside the kitchen door in an outdoor covered area.
Off the kitchen is a generous dining room which can comfortably seat 10 (or squeeze 14). There is a 15-foot built-in buffet for more casual dining. A sliding glass door leads out to a private courtyard which is wonderful in warmer weather.
The large living room has ample seating, tons of natural light, a built-in audio system with Bluetooth and a 60" smart TV.
On the second floor there are three spacious, quiet bedrooms each with a queen bed an additional twin bed, 6' closets, a desk for checking email and a reading chair and lamp. Each bedroom is large enough to afford the corporate traveler or individual family a private place of their own to work or retreat. The average size of the bedrooms is 12'x16', simply luxurious! For business travelers, couples or smaller groups, the twin beds can be removed prior to your arrival. We also have three Pack-and-Play cribs available. Also on the second floor is the den/kid's room, essentially a second living room, or a fourth bedroom, that can be closed off to the rest of the floor with large pocket doors and privacy curtains. The den/kid's room has its own private full bathroom and sectional pullout sofa bed as well as a 60" smart TV and Bluetooth radio. The full-size laundry area is also in the den.
The entire third floor is given to the 675sf penthouse suite. This large, light filled, airy loft has a king bed, a queen bed (that can be removed prior to arrival if not needed) a table and chairs for a quiet afternoon tea, a place to sit and read and its own luxury bathroom with double vanity and rain shower. Down the hall, behind the curtain, are bunk beds for the kids. The penthouse is large enough to comfortably accommodate a family of six! Open the french doors onto the enormous, 600sf, sunny, rooftop deck and transform the penthouse into an indoor/outdoor private living space. Great for meals or just hanging out, the roof deck is also accessible from the landing outside the penthouse suite. Enjoy the huge sky, peak-a-boo views of Mt. Rainer, the Cascade Range, Elliot Bay, and downtown from the rooftop deck.
