Set in the heights of Seattle's soaring Queen Anne neighborhood, this modern city home designed by E. Cobb Architects is an urban dream, offering oodles of space (4,230 sq. ft., to be exact!) and a sleek sense of style - a winning combination. Two bright, airy floors are flooded with natural light streaming in through floor-to-ceiling windows and the unique stepped skylight system overhead. These two storeys, along with a third basement level, are all decked out in contemporary finishes with a minimalist aesthetic that screams "modern elegance" and "welcome home" all at once. The exterior features a simple, straight silhouette of concrete, steel and glass, complemented by a private deck with a neatly manicured garden and a staircase leading up to the front entrance.
On entry, you're welcomed by a bright, open concept foyer flanked by the living room and kitchen. The frosted glass front door and the skylight overhead flood this area with cool, natural light.
The living room is the picture of elegance, with a simply chic fireplace and contemporary style furnishings adding fashion and function to the room. A wall of windows naturally illuminates the area while visually expanding the living space well beyond its four walls. An open stairwell lets light freely flow from up above to down below.
This cool "pop" art portrait complements the contemporary style furnishings while adding a vibrant splash of color to this neutral backdrop. The bold, rust-colored ceiling creates an unexpected focal point overhead.
On the other side of the foyer, a long, linear kitchen faces the living area, making this the perfect layout for entertaining and socializing while preparing a feast. The outdoors remain visible throughout this whole open-concept main floor through the fully glazed front wall.
The kitchen itself is a combination of cool style and efficiency. Running through the center of it, a 25-ft. long island features cubby-style shelving below, offering visible storage for dishes, small appliances, or to display a collection of curios. The Pedini cabinetry has a clean look - sans hardware. Stainless steel appliances and pot lights overhead finish this polished aesthetic.
We love the fact that in this refined abode, elements like these steel joints remain visible, adding a touch of industrial style to this smooth space.
With a crystal-clear glass wall on one side, a frosted one on the other, and an artwork that's a feast for the eyes (pun intended!) this dining area is a delicious little nook for intimate dinners and conversations. A rustic barn-board dining table at the center is a contrast to the refined style surrounding it.
And one dining area leads into another via a sliding glass door - a large room featuring plank floors and expansive windows covered in horizontal blinds. This pattern of measured straight lines gives this open space some structure.
Upstairs, this master bedroom (1 of 2!) is what dreams are made of. Visible from the exterior, a stepped skylight overhead and wall-to-wall windows flood this bright room with natural daylight without compromising privacy. A fireplace adds warmth to this otherwise cool space.
This line of windows crosses into the spa-inspired bathroom, awash in cool greys with a deep rectangular soaker tub made for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.
No luxury master suite would be complete without a walk-in closet and dressing area. This bright white space is the perfect place to dress for the day (or night!) and let your creativity inspire your look. Lots of storage areas for clothing and accessories, strategic lighting, and room to spare to put your look together - what more could a true fashionista ask for?
The second master bedroom boasts the home's signature splash of windows and cool, contemporary style. Love ♥!
This basement flex space makes the perfect media room, which is certainly dressed the part complete with old-fashioned film reels and a retro Coca-Cola poster mounted to the wall. This windowless den is perfect for popcorn and movie marathons.
Even your vehicle has a cool place to crash in this house! Accommodating up to 4 cars, the garage offers plenty of storage space, freeing up your interiors for stylish day-to-day living.
