Architecturally significant Shoreline home designed by Arthur Erickson
Recognized as one of the Pacific Northwest’s most architecturally significant homes of the 20th century, 134 Huckleberry Ln. in Shoreline is on the market. Tucked away in The Highlands, the Arthur Erickson-designed Wright House is a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home sitting on six acres.
Full of local history, the home once belonged to noted businesspeople, philanthropists and art patrons Bagley and Virginia Wright. Bagley held leadership roles at the Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Art Museum and Seattle Symphony and he put together the team that saved a languishing, underfunded plan to construct the Space Needle for the 1962 World’s Fair. For many years, he and Virginia collected post-war and contemporary art, her lifelong passion.
More recently inhabited by Andy Warhol collector Richard L. Weisman, the home has been meticulously reimagined. Sitting snug between two rows of evergreens, the property—originally built in 1979—features an L-shaped layout. A larger pool fit for laps sits in the L’s crook, while a more private infinity pool and lounge space offer Puget Sound views from the other side.
Inside, the 7,470-square-foot property is a masterpiece of space and light—with vaulted ceilings and an abundance of oversized windows and skylights. Large-scale European tiles sit underfoot across the home, including its bathrooms. Unique and original warm-toned concrete create surfaces in every space, while a new, wide-open kitchen, dining and great-room are set up to entertain. The renovated kitchen features custom dark wood cabinetry, two waterfall kitchen islands and a variety of stainless steel appliances.
