Located on beautiful Chuckanut Crest with sweeping views of the bay, this modern home was designed with intent. The kitchen has multi-purpose features, such as the island built on a metal frame with rollers that allows it to serve either as one long island, or, if pulled apart, a separate formal dining area. The homeowners frequently host dinner parties with high-profile guests in the culinary industry, so ensuring the proper entertaining space was key. The table can also roll out onto the patio through the floor-to-ceiling lift and sliding glass doors. The homeowners ordered this glass specifically from Poland; it’s difficult to get cuts of glass this large in the U.S. At the top of the stairs, a quaint library nest makes for a cozy nook where, below the bookshelves, low, large windows allow for the perfect natural reading light.
This reading nook (above) provides cozy contrast to the home’s sharp, edgy design. The room’s low window helps provide the perfect natural reading light. Fluffy pillows, bookshelves, and a wooden side table add an extra level of warmth and comfort, just right for curling up with a good book.
It was imperative that the homeowner, a big player in the cooking industry, had a kitchen that was functional, accommodating, and state-of-the-art. The table, on rollers, can be joined with the island or separated for more formal dining. The patio overlooks the water, where the table can be set for gorgeous views.
Sleek edges and a chiseled look highlight the home’s exterior, with wood and metal features combining to produce a modern-industrial aesthetic. The home, a new build, is surrounded by landscaping carefully selected and placed, with room to grow.
