TWO STORY ADDITION
Blue Sound Construction scraped this home down to its basement level and rebuilt two additional stories on top of the existing foundation and footprint. Located in the desirable View Ridge neighborhood in Seattle, the new house makes the most of sweeping views of Lake Washington with a serene palette, quality materials, and modern lines. The open floor plan, handsome stair tower, welcoming upstairs landing with deck and spacious bedrooms complete the peaceful, open feel that lends the home a quiet, welcoming atmosphere.
Each space manages to feel both generous and comfortable. Last, the warm cedar of the stair to the rooftop deck beckons like a ship cabin. When you reach the top you are greeted with the home's crown jewel: a sweeping view of Lake Washington framed by the Cascade Mountains; you are in the skies of the West Coast's most beautiful city. The custom planters mark the beginnings of a rooftop garden. Photographed by Alex Hayden.
