Contemporary hilltop home with dramatic 270-degree views
This extraordinary hilltop contemporary was designed to take advantage of the unparalleled, 270-degree view, one of the best in the entire city. Perched high on a West Seattle ridge, the 4-bedroom, 5-bath home features an entertainment rooftop with views that take in Puget Sound and the Olympics to the west, Mount Rainier to the south and the Cascades to the east.
The magnificent view begins at the entry, where the 9-foot entrance door swings open to reveal broad views of Puget Sound through a window wall that slides open to a view deck. The elongated, 2-story great room has a vaulted ceiling, adding to the sense of spaciousness and drama. The professional kitchen was designed to take advantage of the remarkable amount of light available on the site, with over-sized windows.
On the family level, the drama continues with a catwalk high above the great room that extends to the master suite. A soaking tub with views to the south and west in the adjoining master bath is open to the bedroom through a cut-out, adding to the bedroom’s astonishing western views. Even the oversized shower boasts a view of Mount Rainier. This floor also holds two view bedrooms, one with a deck.
On the lower level, a spacious entertainment area is backed by an interior media room. But it’s the rooftop deck that’s the major draw for entertaining, with its unbelievable, unobstructed birds-eye views of water, mountains and city. A separate, attached portion of the deck allows for a solar display or a rooftop garden high atop this king of the hill.
