Mt. Baker Tudor Revival: a swoon-worthy 1929 residence fusing historic charm with the modern systems and conveniences of today’s lifestyle. It is rare to find an in-city retreat with the space and seclusion afforded here. Nestled in a coveted pocket of Mt. Baker, embrace life set against a backdrop of iconic Pacific Northwest vistas of Lake Washington, Genessee Park, and the Cascades to Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier. From the summer SeaFair festivities to the winter holiday ships, the ever-changing views always captivate.
Originally designed by R.T. Knope, the residence is beautifully sited with a prominent position on an oversized street. The groundwork laid by Knope was reimagined by George Suyama in 1996 and again by Cardwell Architects in a complete renovation from 2005 to 2007. Cardwell’s updates saw nearly every inch touched, every brick matched, and every detail meticulously crafted—a timeless classic updated to perfection. Period detailing and impeccable style meet expansive formal rooms with sparking views of the lake and mountains. Grand entertaining or intimate daily living comes together amidst a remodeled kitchen and breakfast room, four bedrooms, and terraces to enjoy the glimmering lake. A fully finished daylight lower level is ready for the next steward’s vision, with flexible spaces to suit one’s needs.
The grounds are a work of art in themselves, with lush, magazine-worthy landscaping designed by Allworth-Nussbaum lending to complete privacy and the sanctuary of a private pool and evening fire for s’mores. The home features an ample driveway and two-car garage with an unbeatable location just minutes to parks and the lake plus easy access to downtown Seattle or the Eastside. A quintessentially Seattle lifestyle!
