$760K Buys a Hexagonal Midcentury Loaded with Built-Ins

Don't be square! Get hexagonal. A house with few square corners, besides where the walls meet the floor and the wall, is up for sale on Maury Island, Vashon's suburb. For $760,000 you can buy a 2 bedroom, 2 bath house with 2,510 square feet of living space perched on a bluff with a view. Designed in the style of, but not by, Frank Lloyd Wright, it's up to you to decide whether the house evokes Fallingwater or Taliesin West - or some architect's experiment in angularity and natural materials. The materials are natural, which is appropriate for an acre property bordered by the untamable nature that is Puget Sound. Almost every wall is wood. Pillars are stone, mortared by left unpolished. The massive copper mantle matches the fire in the fireplace. The woodwork throughout is impressive. Every room has its own collection of built-ins as cabinetry and furniture.

The full tour awaits. >>
