Designed in 1954 by noted Seattle-area architect Roland Terry, this sleek cube was the home of John and Anne Hauberg, who, along with a little glass artist by the name of Dale Chihuly, founded the Pilchuck Glass School in 1971. (Terry's the man behind the school design, too.)

Anyway, the four-bedroom home has a dramatic three-story foyer that acts as a "sun catcher," of sorts, siphoning light into adjacent rooms on each floor; whitened hemlock walls and ceilings; a full-on wrapping closet (complete with ribbon-roll holders and drawers for paper); 1,200 square feet of sundecks; and a "cloud room," or "a room between heaven and earth" that was "designed to attract the muse of the sun," according to the brokerbabble. The place also has utterly spectacular views of Mt. Rainier, a previous shout-out in House Beautiful, and some highfalutin tales to tell: "Still talked about in social circles today, the original owners held an impromptu Mardi Gras housewarming party complete with an 8-piece band on the mezzanine overlooking the grand living room." And: "The elite of Seattle from the 1950s to present day have dined at [the dining room] table." Ask? $3.35M, with many of the furnishings, appliances, and artworks negotiable.
