In today’s wild world, who wouldn’t love a town known as The Quiet Place. Woodway, Washington began in 1912 with a small community two-acre minimum parcels and Woodway remains a tranquil residential community just north of the King/Snohomish County line.
Today’s home was built in 2007 but has the substantial allure of a far older home. The home was conceived around the idea of the 100-year house, a property that stands the test of time. The New England shingle-style home gracefully bridges traditional style and craftsmanship with modern amenities and meticulous construction. Architect Stuart Silk and award-winning designer Gretchen Evans collaborated to make this nationally published home an entertainer’s dream.
The details in a classic home feel so assuring; everything is big and solid and permanent. In this house, the designers used oversized trim, window and door casings with back-bands and 11-inch baseboards with base caps. There are massive corbels on the patio holding up the master bedroom balcony. The ceilings are high and framed with built-up crown moldings—even in the basement. Everything feels solid and substantial.
Modern counterpoints include an open kitchen, Crestron music system, central air conditioning, a PBX phone system, central vacuum, fire suppression system, cast iron waste pipes and copper supply lines. The home is wired for security and every kind of communication line and ready for a generator with an automatic switch and panel.
The property sits on two acres with tall cedar and fir trees. The guesthouse above the detached three-car garage includes floors and counters milled from wood grown on the property.
It is listed for $4.2 million with Windemere Real Estate and is showcased by Luxury Real Estate.
