Location: Bainbridge Island, Washington
This midcentury modern home sits right by the water in the city of Bainbridge Island on the eponymous island in Washington’s Puget Sound. Built in 1965, the three-bed-two-bath appears to be largely original, save for a couple of updates, with period details like wood paneling, exposed beams, and Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Cherokee red concrete and vintage vinyl floors found throughout.
Measuring just over 2,000 square feet, the residence takes in spectacular panoramic views of Mount Rainier and the city skyline by way of sliding glass doors and clerestory windows in the open-plan living area, which creates a strong connection to the outdoors. Here, a large Roman brick fireplace and hearth anchor the asymmetrical space that includes a dining area that flows into a sizable period kitchen.
There are two bedrooms and one and a half baths on the main level, plus a lower level office, partial bath, and a “secret loft hideaway” with a skylight for stargazing. Located at 13166 Sunrise Drive on a 1.75-acre parcel, the property is offered at $975,000.
