The Architectural Legacy.
With a rigorous attention to detail and a remarkable ability to integrate art into architecture, this Roland Terry Classic home is an American original of the Northwest genre. The stunning light-filled open design of the 5150 square foot home for sale, featuring 10.5 rooms with panoramic Lake and Mountain views, (plus an additional 1226 sq. ft. in view decks) was born of the owners’ desire to shelter private dreams, signal social standing with parties to entertain the who’s who of Seattle, and showcase art.
Receiving national acclaim in House Beautiful magazine as a striking example of the “new contemporary elegance”, this 4 bedroom Washington Park home for sale has been featured on Seattle Art Museum home tours and studied by University of Washington architecture students for its enlightened handling of space, view, materials, lighting—and above all, craftsmanship.
