Kirkland Residence traditional-exterior

Kirkland Residence

This 4,500 square foot house faces eastward across Lake Washington from Kirkland toward the Seattle skyline. The clients have an appreciation for the Foursuare style found in many of the historic homes in the area, and designing a home that fit this vocabulary while also conforming to the zoning height limits was the primary challenge. The plan includes a music room, study, craft room, breakfast nook, and 5 bedrooms, all of which pinwheel off of a centrally located stair. Sylights in the center of the house flood the home with natural light from the ceiling through an opening in the second floor down to the main level.

My apologies, the numbers for the paint were given to the owner in their homeowners' manual and are not part of our records. Best of luck on your search!
