This glass-walled home in Washington’s Beaux Arts Village soaks up the natural light, as well as the views of the enormous Douglas firs that surround it.
Architect James Cutler of West Coast practice Cutler Anderson Architects designed the post-and-beam home around the old-growth trees that dot the King County property’s grounds. One of them is almost seven feet wide, and it now shelters the house, spread across two wings.
Its double-height open plan living and dining room feature full-length windows, with the glass contrasted by wooden floorboards, exposed bricks and a beamed ceiling.
There’s no shortage of views in the rest of the five-bedroom woodland home either – every room captures leafy views from its windows. Compass is listing the contemporary home for $5.1m, and it’s a short walk from the nearby Beaux Arts beachfront, and a 15-minute drive from Seattle.
