On a gentle curve of Parkside Drive with views to Broadmoor’s 8th fairway, this 1946 home has maintained sophisticated leanings to its art-deco past. A sculptured passageway leads to the peaceful main entrance, opening to a landing in neutral travertine tile.
Down a short flight of stairs, the main floor of the home spills open to a welcoming and generous formal living area. A sweep of windows allows for golf course views and skylights at the top of double height ceilings create a feeling of spaciousness. A marbled fire place, one of seven in the home, provides quiet elegance for gatherings.
Steps from the living area, the dining room is washed in light by a wall of floor to ceiling windows. Opening to a wraparound deck that is also accessible from the gourmet kitchen, the main floor extends easily to the outdoors. Centered by an L-shaped island clad in black granite, the kitchen offers stainless steel appliances and informal seating at countertop height. A fireplace off the eating area is a rare luxury.
Flanked by a built-in desk with cabinetry and bench seating, the entire space offers incredible utility. A laundry room off the kitchen and an office, with original built-in bar area, complete the main floor.
Upstairs, the primary suite is grand in presence and scale. Open and airy, the vaulted ceilings are complemented by a wall of original built-in drawers and wardrobe cabinetry. Off the sleeping area, a luxurious light-filled sitting room has views to the golf course from wrap around windows and a warming fireplace.The en suite bath was updated to spa-like perfection with black fronted cabinetry and marble countertops. Large scale marble tiles line the walls of the shower room, with double shower heads an an oval shaped porcelain soaking tub.
Down the hall, two bedrooms, each with original built-ins, and an additional bathroom, are found.
The lower level is for recreation. A satellite kitchen and bar open to an informal seating area and an additional bathroom and bedroom provide accommodations for family or guests. A shower room with sauna is ideally located steps from the outdoor pool area, and also offers storage for pool amenities.
Outside, a multi-layered space for entertainment of all kinds. A wrap-around deck from the second level of the home looks down on the pool and hot tub with additional gathering areas around the pool scape. A lush surround of plantings offer beauty and privacy for every occasion. An artful and sophisticated offering in one of Seattle’s most esteemed neighborhoods.
