Iconic. Captivating. Inspiring.
Welcome to 1211 5th Avenue West where you will be immediately greeted by full, opulent and brightly colored mature landscaping in the front garden – the absolute shining example of curb appeal! Enter the front walkway through a crisp, black gate and make your way to the covered front porch, filled with period details. An oversized, striking blue door swings to admit you into the most gracious of foyers.
Here is where the beauty of this home truly begins: every minute detail has been lovingly restored or newly created – the ultimate combination of vintage and modern. The foyer is the first of many examples of this marriage: note the gleaming, refinished red oak hardwoods; the stately staircase banister; the exquisite arched design of the leaded glass within opposing sets of French doors, leading to separate spaces.
Exploring the living room to your left first, taking in the serene beauty of this generously sized room – flanked by beautiful and efficient Andersen windows (these are throughout the house), allowing for abundant natural light. This room benefits from eastern, southern and western exposures. The carefully restored mantle surrounds a Mendota gas fireplace – one flip of a switch brings you beauty and warms the room on its own solely, if desired.
Walking across the foyer we enter the formal dining area, with front-facing windows and a stunning Artemide Logico Pendant light. Also noteworthy is the art hanging system here by Systematic Art – no more holes in the walls! This gracious space allows for intimate and large gatherings alike.
Flow into the most amazing chef’s kitchen to make your daily cooking and entertaining dreams come true. The details and features here are endless: state-of-the-art stainless appliances including 36″ Wolf gas cooktop, Wolf wall oven and microwave, Bosch dishwasher, Sub Zero 42″ French door refrigerator and freezer – all this, plus a Sub Zero 84″x24″ wine cooler. An expansive center island (3′ x 7.5′) offers additional work space and storage. Copious amounts of custom white cabinetry adorn the room and, along with gleaming quartz countertops and a beautiful tile wall behind the oversized farmhouse sink, makes for a soothing aesthetic.
And now for the “piece de la resistance” of this main level: an extremely thoughtful Jewel Box addition to the kitchen area, boasting not only another generous space in which to dine, but also walls of windows: a NanaWall glass door system, allowing for an unparalleled indoor/outdoor experience in conjunction with the amazing botanical garden. Another exquisite statement light fixture (this time a Louis Poulsen IC Shutters Pendant) graces this space. This room is truly a unique beauty and sure to be the most utilized!
Rounding out the main level is a perfectly placed powder room – with carefully detailed privacy glass where needed and a beautiful outlook to the back yard as well.
Let’s explore upstairs next! This stunning remodel includes a vaulted ceiling above the staircase and over the upstairs hall – and skylights – drenching this whole area in natural light even on the greyest of Seattle days. This ambience, along with a carefully designed hideable laundry area in the upstairs hall, makes even household chores a joy.
An enviable 3-bedrooms-up configuration graces this home, allowing for kids’ bedrooms, guest bedrooms, home offices, you decide! Visiting the primary suite first, you will be delighted by the southeast positioning of this bedroom: on clear days, wake up to seeing Mount Rainier through your bedroom window! Plenty spacious for a king bed if desired, this room is so serene and private with abundant natural light. Saunter into the spa-like, ensuite bathroom and admire all the careful details here: an elegant Victoria & Albert Ios volcanic limestone free-standing bath; walk-in, curbless shower with rain and hand-held heads; a private, frosted, glass-enclosed WC! Your feet will never feel cold here with underfloor heating and the double vanity with designer lighting makes the room complete. Spacious and soothing, this primary bathroom is a delight.
Two more bedrooms await upstairs, along with a superlative 3/4 bath. The bedroom closest to the primary enjoys northeast exposure – again, very private with lush greenery out one window and lovely territorial views out the other. A third bedroom on the northwest corner offers a custom nook offering perfect privacy for a secluded desk if desired. This bedroom also views the year-round greenery to the north and oversees the home’s amazing back yard to the west. Ample closet space and storage adorn all three of these gorgeous second level bedrooms. Finishing up this floor is a spacious 3/4 bath with pristine vanity, specially designed privacy glass and a stunning walk-in shower with pleasing tile choices.
But wait, there’s more! A whole lower level which has been carefully remodeled as well awaits. Downstairs, we find a fourth (non-confirming) bedroom which also serves beautifully as a family room, media room, home office . . . the options are endless. Extensive amount of closet space was included in this room as well. In the hall, a second wine storage unit conveys for your convenience (this one a Liebherr.) An immaculate utility room is located here (offering back yard access as well) and is plumbed/wired for washer and dryer if one wants to have those facilities on this level. An additional storage room offers more options, too: play room, home gym . . . . again, multiple uses! On the way to the expanded garage, we find a conveniently placed, spacious coat closet, perfect when you arrive home to shed your coat and other belongings. And don’t miss the 240V electrical vehicle charger awaiting your electric car in the attached garage.
EXPLORE THE GROUNDS
There is just not enough to be said about the beauty of this home’s outside spaces. The back yard (the entire lot is fully fenced) is lush, mature, meandering and absolutely stunning. First off, directly next to the Jewel Box extension off the kitchen, a clean-lined hardscaped area offers easily accessible outside dining space. (Don’t miss the integrated stainless grill around the corner for grilling convenience!)
Walk further down the path and enjoy an intimate seating area, perfect for gathering around the fire with a glass of wine or perhaps an evening of s’mores making!
The mature landscaping throughout this sumptuous botanic garden includes beautiful species of both evergreens and perennials alike. The sense of privacy here is outstanding – you really feel like you’re in your own, secluded oasis.
