Step through the doors of a modern craftsman style home at Pottery Point, where a celebration of simple forms and a true appreciation for quality materials meets spectacular 270-degree views of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier, Commencement Bay, Maury Island, and Ruston. The “arts and crafts” architecture fuses design and function for an effortless lifestyle situated across 6,922 square feet of living space with two main level bedrooms and an additional five bedrooms on the upper level. The lighting mirrors the linear motifs of the home’s exterior, as pendant and sconce lighting cast a golden light.
An open concept kitchen with a dining nook is primed for even the most ambitious of culinary endeavors, from the Wolf four-burner stove with a griddle, Wolf oven, and warming drawer to the subzero refrigerator, Parma granite island, vegetable sink, and two-bowl sink capturing stunning vistas. A built-in task desk provides daily convenience while French doors lead to an expansive main level deck for grand entertaining or a quiet evening spent with good company and a glass of wine. The kitchen and its adjoining Butler’s pantry echo the craftsman style with modern touches that combine with traditional statements that create a warm and inviting space.
Invite friends to gather in a great room furnished with a gas/wood fireplace with immaculate stonework and a newly finished mantle. A convenient powder room and adjoining Butler’s pantry with built-in cabinets and a sink allow for seamless entertaining. Informal gatherings are well suited for the TV room, which is set up for Sonos and surround sound, with blackout blinds, a sub-woofer and mid-range speakers to enhance your game day or movie night experience.
The upper level of the home features a series of craftsman-style bedrooms that overlook views with serene style. The master suite exudes tranquility, with power blinds, a private view deck and a walk-in closet plumbed for a washer/dryer. The five-piece ensuite bath provides travertine floors, two vanities, and a private water closet. Four additional bedrooms grace the upper level, with two that share a full bath, an additional ¾ bath, and an office/flexible workspace to suit your vision.
The lower level of the home functions as its own self-contained living space set over 2,000 square feet. It features two bedrooms (one with an attached bath), a great room with a gas fireplace, a kitchen with an island, spare room, separate laundry with H&L cabinets and a stackable washer/dryer, and French doors leading to the outdoor living spaces.
The home’s exterior offers hand-stained cedar siding with Tongue and Groove Cedar Porches, Kolbe windows and doors, and security cameras. An outdoor entertaining area is plumbed for outdoor lighting, gas, and water for a future outdoor kitchen. Professional landscaping with a sprinkler system and surround sound create an amazing ambience. The five-foot deep luxurious hot tub accommodates 21 guests with phone-operated controls, a new motorized cover, and ergonomically conscious jets.
Built in 2007 the residence is ADA accessible with a fully wired elevator shaft. Additional features include American Cherry hardwood floors on the main and upper level, Sonos and surround sound speakers throughout, Cat 5 wiring, two heat pumps, radiant heating in all bathroom tile floors and the lower level, two 4,000 BTU panels, a high-efficiency Lennox “Smart Furnace,” and cast-iron bathtubs in all bathrooms. The main level laundry facility provides built-in cabinets and countertops and an LG steam washer and dryer with garage access and French doors leading to the deck.
Perched on the hillside above North Tacoma, Pottery Point is one of the area’s most sought-after neighborhoods for its stellar sense of community and unforgettable views of Commencement Bay, Puget Sound, and the Olympics.
