Modern Lakewood home steps from Lake Washington
Built in 1938 but thoroughly renovated since, 4007 49th Ave. S is just steps away from Lake Washington. With dramatic windows, sweeping lake views and a well-tended backyard with plenty of functional patio space, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is primed for gatherings. Designed for energy efficiency and longevity, the 2,940-square-foot property is certified 5-Star Built Green, with architectural details including handcrafted wood walls from reclaimed wood, heat recapture and a metal roof.
On the main floor, the light-filled living area flows into the formal dining room and sleek, Euro-style kitchen. With stylish two-toned cabinetry, exposed shelving, gas range and Miele wall oven, any home chef would be delighted by the space. Off the kitchen, a garden door opens onto a fresh deck and landscaped, fully fenced yard. Elsewhere on the second floor, two bedrooms with walls of closet storage share a three-fourths bathroom.
Up artisan steel floating stairs, the home’s second level is an owner’s respite. A relaxed living area (or home office) sits under a monopitched roof covered in wood beams. The warm wood extends from the ceiling down one wall, which acts as a divider between the living space and bedroom. The master bedroom is accessible via open walkways on either side of the living area, complete with clerestory windows and a wall of built-in cabinet storage. Both spaces open onto a sizable, private lake-view deck.
On ground level, you’ll find a rec room, fourth bedroom, full bath, built-in office nook, a laundry room and access to the garage.
