One of the most exceptional in-city properties available in Seattle, this one-of-a-kind custom home + 2400 sf carriage house evokes the formal symmetry and effortless elegance of a classic coastal retreat. Strategically positioned just above Shilshole Bay with views from Whidbey Island to Mt. Rainier, this peaceful setting offers secluded tranquility, while minutes away from the business and tech hubs of Downtown, South Lake Union and Interbay.

Constructed as a collaboration between its owners, Craig Stillwell of Stillwell Hanson Architects and landscape designer Dale Greer, this property combines classic architectural forms with contemporary space planning and construction. The result is a home that is gracious in scale and historic in atmosphere, yet effortlessly comfortable and luxurious for modern lifestyles. Thoughtful attention to scale and proportion offers grand spaces that maintain an enveloping sense of intimacy while living large. Walls of windows frame water, mountain and marina views. This residence offers the easy grandeur of Pacific Northwest coastal living with four floors of sublime living space that epitomize best practices in design, construction and finest detail.

Just across from the main residence sits a beautifully designed 2400 sf carriage house with a two bedroom, 1.25 bath living space above a three car garage. Perfect for guests or income property. This additional dwelling is finished to a level consistent with the main house, with vaulted ceilings, opulent finishes, full service elevator and its own garden space. The garage is fully finished and can easily be converted into outdoor entertaining space. The auto court offers additional parking for 10 cars – ideal for entertaining or the car aficionado.

A gracious covered front porch opens into a foyer, and leads into the living room on the right, a stunning symmetrical space, surrounded on three sides by large transom windows that frame views over the veranda. Anchored by a large cast stone fireplace, with plenty of room for a grand piano and various sitting areas. 

The main house has three light and airy above ground levels, all of which are optimized to capture iconic outlooks, while a spacious lower level offers high ceilings and large windows that belie its subterranean position.

The second floor is devoted to three bedroom suites that all offer direct access to two glorious decks. The master suite occupies half of the second floor, with a spacious lounge at the top of the staircase landing that leads into a light-filled sleeping area, walk-in closet and master bath. French doors lead out onto a paved west-facing patio that offers 270 degree views over Puget Sound and beyond, with plenty of room for two or twenty.

Two additional bedroom suites share a large south-facing deck, each with its own set of French doors for access. Both bedrooms offer an airy, light-filled aesthetic that is enhanced by a pair of ensuite marble-lined baths with oversized walk-in showers that offer a spa-like retreat.
