Inspired by the ageless, courtyard domestic architecture of Normandy and Brittany, this home is located on an expansive waterfront site with sweeping views of Elliot Bay, Seattle, and the Cascade Mountains. Avid travelers, our clients fell in love with the multi-generational homes of the French countryside and wanted to recreate the feel of these villas for themselves.
Limestone walls and carefully detailed carved stone balconies, entry portico and bronze clad windows and doors reinforce the timelessness and permanence of this design. To complement the home’s historical authenticity, a number of antique details were imported from Europe including Italian handcrafted fireplaces and fountains, wrought iron lighting, oak herringbone floors, and hand-carved stone gargoyles.
