Location: Renton, Wash.
The Skinny: This 3,800-square-foot glass and concrete number lies on 70 feet of Lake Washington waterfront and features a “spa,” media room, deep-water mooring, and boulder-lined swimming pool. Apparently, all those luxuries didn’t leave space in the glass cube for more than two bedrooms.
The upper level, with soaring ceilings and walls of glass, makes for a stunning entertaining space, particularly the massive kitchen and dining area with space for 10. Twenty minutes from downtown Seattle, the house has views over the water to Mercer Island.
That’s a great looking house but I agree WTF 2 bedrooms?
What is the distance of this house from the Bill Gates’ pad? I don’t want to be annoyed with Windows haters having the wrong address.
Am I the only one who wouldn’t want to live in a fishbowl like that? It’s an esthetically beautiful structure in a gorgeous setting, but I couldn’t stand to actually live in it.
Maybe it’s a good thing that I don’t need a trophy house in Renton and am just too cheap to spend that much on something to live in, anyway. It’d leave me house-poor.
I like the look and feel, but two stories, 3800 sq ft and only two bedrooms, don’t think so. We have actual friends.
Gosh, I love housing porn.
When I lived in Seattle, Renton was the Santee of the area. Wonder if it’s changed, or they just like the low-rent district…
Plenty of room for friends; you just gotta kick’em out when it gets too late. 😉
I think these lake side lots are Bellevue adjacent. and certainly the folks living here can probably send their kids to private schools.
This is a really nice house; there is no stucco, no crown moulding, no wall base, no arches. Great post. Thanks
We have friends we don’t mind having around for days at a time. I guess maybe that’s why we can’t afford a $2.5M waterfront home…we haven’t screwed enough people over. 🙂
They’d better not throw any stones
