Imagine life in the heart of Denny Blaine, one of Seattle’s most historic and beautiful neighborhoods, in a living work of art lovingly re-imagined by one of the region’s acclaimed interior designers. Walk across the street to Lake View Park, or stroll along one of the area’s many tree-lined boulevards for breakfast or coffee. Lake Washington and all of its recreational opportunities beckons just below the hill.
This is life at 309 37th Ave East, a William Bain-designed masterpiece that has been meticulously restored by its designer owner. Capturing the magic of French Norman Tudor architecture, yet instilling modern convenience and luxury, she has created a residence that is up to the minute for contemporary living, yet steeped in the detail and craftsmanship of a bygone era.
With architectural details that include coved ceilings, dramatically vaulted rooms and characteristic dormers, this home conveys an historic yet hip vibe that can serve as the unexpected backdrop for even the most contemporary of collections. Artisanal surfaces and rich materials abound, creating an environment of enveloping luxury and interest in every corner – no room has been spared the designer’s touch!
With carefully scaled rooflines and exterior surfaces that include half-timbered stucco, wide-plank siding and natural stone, leaded windows accented with copper frieze, the house presents an enchanting façade from its position high above one of Denny Blaine’s most coveted streets. Lush native gardens surround the home, creating outdoor rooms in conjunction with award winning, meticulously designed garden that plays off the rich history. To walk up the entry stairs is quite literally to be transported.
