11435 206th Pl SE is a profound example of the results that are possible when clients, architect and builder work hand-in-hand to create a timeless masterpiece that pays tribute to a spectacular location. Carefully sited on 10 acres at the top of Cougar Mountain, this stunning Ralph Anderson-designed estate offers over 11,000 square feet of meticulously crafted and sumptuously detailed interior space that frames one-of-a-kind, 270-degree views that sweep from Mt. Rainier over Puget Sound, Seattle, Lake Washington and Bellevue, all the way to the Olympic Mountains and North Cascades beyond. Eagles soar above and local wildlife enjoys its native habitat while airplanes and weather fronts pass in the distance far below.
This is an expansive, confident residence, created by a symbiotic collaboration between passionate, uncompromising homeowners who knew what they wanted and entrusted a legendary architect to interpret their vision and a team of craftspeople who spent over two years bringing it to fruition. With long, low-slung lines and an expressive palette of native materials, the house complements and blends into its unique topography, allowing top-of-the-world views and the surrounding nature to take pride of place. Floor-to-ceiling windows work with carefully placed building apertures to create view corridors throughout the home that emphasize its relationship to one-of-a-kind outlooks, while the metered attenuation of ceiling heights and lighting creates equal measures of drama and intimacy that are reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work.
