What's not to like about an elegant Italianate mansion with Puget Sound views and ample space. The design was customized to afford almost all rooms with seascape vistas.
There are two master suites, a den, entertainment room and playroom. The eat-in kitchen is equipped with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, six-burner range, double wall oven and cherry wood cabinets. Twelve French doors open onto patios, decks and wrought iron balconies.
Elegant touches include fan lights, marble floors, columned and arched entryways, multiple fireplaces and a huge laundry room. The nearly half-acre of land boasts a beautifully kept lawn, lovely foundation plantings and walkways.
