A short 35-minute ferry ride from Seattle, this luxury waterfront house is a nature-lover's paradise, removed from the hustle and bustle of city life, embracing peace, privacy and the environment. Located on Bainbridge Island, WA, the very modern house plan was designed to frame the waterfront views. Tucked between the waterways of Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains, this Zen-style home's cool facade complements its surroundings with its a contemporary combination of tongue-and-groove cedar, a sloped corrugated metal roof and Milgard aluminum windows, bronze-finished. On the ground and upper levels, patios and terraces offer every room outdoor access, lines with large glass doors that flood interiors with natural light. The views outside are rivaled only by the views inside, where a functional open-concept layout reveals natural wood finishes and stone details to the whole living space - kitchen, dining area and den. While the floor plan is open and conducive to socializing, this home still offers plenty of privacy. If you're still looking for somewhere to escape to, you won't soon run dry in this 4,000-sq.-ft. home with four bedrooms, a wine cellar, a second suite with separate entrance, a rec room, a sauna, an office and of course, what Zen house would be complete without its own meditation room? To top off this luxury list, apart from being gorgeous and on a prime property, this house is replete with eco sustainable features. Bravo to architecture firm Build.
