This view home is located by scenic Hood Canal, part of the Puget Sound Waterway, bordering the Olympic Mountains, in Northwest Washington. In a town Forbes Traveler named one of America's top 20 most beautiful areas. Conveniently located just 40 minutes from metro area and 1.75 hours to Sea-Tac airport, this deluxe custom home is situated for the enjoyment of majestic 180 degree views of both Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains. With main-level living and a guest suite upstairs, this lodge is the perfect retirement or vacation home. The home's "rocky mountain style" is characterized by board and batten cedar siding and magnificent timber posts and trusses, beginning at the outside main entry and continuing through the great room to the outside of the view windows. The large stone, wall size, wood burning fireplace, along with other stone finishes inside and out harmonize the house with the rugged mountain setting. Other design elements in this home to enrich its mountain grandeur are the elegantly styled windows; vaulted and 10' ceilings; custom designed and built lodge pole pine grand staircase; saddle hickory and slate floors; knotty alder window and door frames; richly finished library/office; aesthetically located french doors; granite slab, marble, and travertine countertops; and use of bronze hardware; and decorative antler chandeliers. Located in a private, secure community of view homes - yet amongst the vast and spacious outdoors - the lodge is situated less than 1 mile away from fine dining and the ever-prestigious Alderbrook Resort (which houses a golf course, spa, and marina services). Everything you could ever need is just outside your door and with all the privacy one could ask for. The perfect escape - or just home.
