Imagine the grandeur of westerly vistas sweeping across Puget Sound, over the Olympic mountains and to the serenity of Vashon and Maury Islands.
Designed by internationally revered Jim Olson with Tom Kundig as Project Architect, Westmount creates a frame for nature with walls of glass that blend indoors and out to achieve harmonic symmetry. View decks situated around the home encapsulate gorgeous views, whether it’s watching the ships pass by on a crisp autumn morning or the sun as it slowly melts below the skyline.
The current owner commissioned Olson’s help to craft this 3,575 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home thirty-three years ago with the aim of achieving serenity and balance. The result is a residence that feels simple in design but is far from it, that allows nature to take center stage and is as well-suited for entertaining as it is for daily living. And of course, the home is true to one of Olson’s signature design elements: his appreciation for art, as ample spaces throughout the home are primed to display a collection.
Seamless flow from room to room affords an ease of living, as the living room with a cozy fireplace unfolds into a dining area and into a chef’s kitchen ready for culinary creations with an island, granite countertops, walk-in pantry, stainless steel appliances and a gas range. Step through French doors to the view deck and descend the stairs to peruse the gorgeous grounds complete with lush, mature plantings and a rose garden with a sprinkler system and fence for convenience.
The master suite exudes tranquility as views of the Sound meet a walk-in closet and spa-like ensuite with dual sinks, a water closet and sumptuous Japanese soaking tub. Additional features include a built-in vacuum, security system, a two-car garage and community tennis courts with membership available at the Marine Hills Swim & Tennis Club. A unique lifestyle comes together within this home’s distinctive heritage and is one it’s next stewards will be truly proud to own.
