There’s something truly peaceful about a home tucked into the trees, and this five-bedroom, five-bath beauty in Beaux Arts, Washington, proves the point. The 5,565-square-foot house in the suburbs of Seattle was designed and built in 2014 by Jim Cutler of Cutler Anderson Architects.
The design sought to avoid cutting down the site’s seven old-growth Douglas fir trees, so the treehouse-like home was constructed around them. The open-concept floorplan is anchored by a central courtyard with a wide-open gathering space that offers views of the largest tree. Two different wings stem from the heart of the home: a gathering space with tall ceilings, exposed beams, and an inside/outside wall of vertical-lift glass doors that open onto the south-facing courtyard.
Nature is the theme in the bedrooms, too, where large panels of glass look out onto carefully landscaped gardens and—of course—more trees. Other perks include a media room, office, and an outdoor fire pit. Love what you see? 2737 107th Avenue Southeast is on the market now for $5,180,000.
