Sophisticated single-family home above Portage Bay
Built in 2014, 1208 E. Hamlin St. is a sleek, two-story modern home overlooking Portage Bay—a popular waterway connecting Lake Washington and Lake Union. With three bedrooms and four baths, the property includes 2,530 square feet, a two-car garage and adjoining guesthouse.
The main house consists of two bedrooms, an office and three bathrooms. It’s also feasible to reincorporate the ADU, adding a family room, bedroom and bathroom to the primary home.
Beyond the tiled entryway lined with storage closets, a custom bleached white oak staircase leads to the main level. The bright flooring extends through the home, including the first floor laundry room. Also downstairs, there’s a three-fourths bathroom with tiled shower, bedroom and garage access.
Upstairs, the panoramic views take center stage—visible from anywhere you’re situated: the living room, dining area or kitchen. Soaring windows line the north wall, offering views of the water, Seattle’s iconic floating homes and the University of Washington. The panorama extends to the west with a floor-to-ceiling sliding door that opens onto a balcony. Stairs from the balcony lead to a ground-level patio perfect for entertaining. The second floor’s master ensuite also enjoys water views, plus a full-bath with two entry-points, separate closets and storage spaces, a double vanity and soaking tub.
Back downstairs, the guest-suite can function like a completely separate and stand-alone living quarters. For visitors or renters, it offers a bedroom and bathroom, kitchen with eat-in island, water views and a cozy patio.
