Complete with touches to the past, the first master suite features a cast iron bathtub from an old Seattle mansion, a lovely dresser from the Wally Funk family.  A lovely Juliette balcony overlooks Causland Park providing an oasis unlike any other.kitchen

Designed to accommodate three chefs, the kitchen features ample prep space.  South American Ipe hardwood is used on the countertops and island.

Relax in the living room lounge with your guests, natural light and immaculate South American Ipe hardwood floors equipped with a hydronic circulating heating system, or perhaps entertain in the formal dining room.  Allowing for additional space for guests, off the dining room is an office space that can double as a bonus reading room.
