Situated just off a gentle bend on a quaint street in Madrona, this 1910 colonial revival stuns with a quiet, stately presence. Just beyond the privacy hedge and French-inspired wrought iron gate, a grand entryway opens to well-lit rooms that have maintained classic features and authenticity of the era.
Period molding and intricate trim work are abundantly present throughout and elegant Venetian plaster plays in harmony with the home’s genteel aesthetic. Off the grand hall, the well-proportioned living room is centered by a commanding fireplace, & enveloped on either side by original bookcases. Abundant light plays off high ceilings throughout.
Through the formal entry, an exquisite and polished dining room with abundant windows and light playing off Venetian plaster and soothing custom mural painting. Direct access to the kitchen and outdoor terrace allows for multiple dining options. The kitchen, bright and generous with access to the dining room, offers an informal eating area to take in lake views and ample space for culinary creativity. The main floor is completed by a cozy study, hidden behind original pocket doors and a full basement rounds out the lower level.
Sophisticated and generous outdoor spaces are accessible from all central living areas. With commanding unobstructed bridge-to-bridge views, the home extends well beyond its expanse of windows towards gardens and terraces befitting moments of peaceful reflection and elegant evening soirees.
The sweeping staircase, illuminated by generous western facing windows, leads to an upper landing connecting three bedrooms, two with en suite and all with stunning lake views. The 3/4 bathroom en suite is dressed in soft egg-shell blue imported ceramic tile. Found just beyond the walk-in closet, the master en suite has been tastefully remodeled in a neutral stone palette and includes a lavish glass surround shower and original claw foot tub. The third floor flex room is suitable for a myriad of uses and also has pristine views facing east.
A coveted location coupled with refined and elegant gardens, abundant private patios, and breathtaking views are truly the hallmark of this other worldly home. Behind mature privacy hedges and through an enchanting wrought iron gate, elegant gardens are lined with English boxwood. A brick footpath extends to the classic entry with carriage house lanterns flanking the front door. A hidden & enchanting side garden is a welcomed surprise.
