Michael Ackerman and Ron Waxman are beyond thrilled to present our newest listing – a stunning mid-century modern home that has been sensationally updated with polished and resplendent finishes.
Go for a refreshing evening walk along Lake Washington Boulevard. Enjoy a delicious brunch with good friends at Geraldine’s Counter. Sip coffee at your dining room table and watch the crew teams rowing from the boathouse as the sun rises above the lake and park.
Mt Baker has always been one of Seattle’s most quintessential neighborhoods – it quietly resides on the lip of Lake Washington and is the playground for boating enthusiasts, joggers, and anyone who enjoys the natural beauty of the northwest. 3831 43rd Ave S was originally introduced to the area in 1957 and was thoughtfully reborn in 2001. It has been one of the style anchors ever since. Uplifting. Gracious. Noteworthy.
This intriguing mid-century modern home retains the unrivaled style of the 50’s while presenting a relaxed contemporary confidence. The finishes and appointments are luxurious and radiate a warm welcoming essence. From the innovative entryway coy pond to the dramatic oversized front door, you know from the start that you are in for a special experience. The splendid formal entry sets the tone for the rest of the home with its high ceilings, gleaming Australian ash hardwoods and unique use of materials. The living room, dining room and kitchen make up the ‘great room’ of the home and create a generous gathering space for all who visit. The living room features a cozy gas fireplace with custom precast concrete surround and access to the Acacia/Iron Wood exterior deck that runs the entire length of the home. The dining room will easily support a large dinner party but is also perfect for a more intimate celebration. The triumphant kitchen, which is always the social heart-beat of the home, was cleverly designed to be both a refreshing work-space but also makes a refined style statement. Anigre cabinets, Turkish limestone countertops and high-end appliances await. You will be inspired to be a better cook! Hidden electric roller shades allow you to control the light (and the mood) for any occasion. The romantic master bedroom will make you feel like you are staying in a 5 star hotel with its large windows, Baby Alpaca drapery treatments and rich wool carpeting. The master dressing room features custom African ribbon mahogany cabinetry and Italian sconces – dress in style each day. The limestone inspired master bath is so welcoming and sexy that you may not want to leave even when you are ready. An open “flex room” is located just opposite the entry door and allows for a variety of uses – den, home office, library – your choice. A beautifully designed guest bath finishes the spaces on the main level.
The lower level will delight with its oversized family room. The space is so gracious in size that you could create two entertaining areas without compromising – let your imagination run wild. Two soothing guest bedrooms, another spa-like guest bath and the crisp utility room complete this level. Easy access to the front patio and gardens is also featured.
The exterior spaces of the home allow for the energy to flow effortlessly and connect to the interiors with ease. The front deck spans the entire length of the front of the home and offers serene views of the park and lake. The front patio and gardens are just begging for a party and the sweet upper patio off the master bedroom breathes tranquility.
Easy access to downtown, highways and the freeway. It is rare that a home can be both convenient and also feel like it is miles away from everything. Refreshing. Enduring. Alluring.
