AIA Award-winning modern has crystal-clear views of Puget Sound

By April 24, 2020

Fauntleroy, Houses, West Seattle

10058 47th Ave SW, designed by Canatsey Weinstein Architects, won an AIA Seattle Honor Award in 1981—its peers included the restoration of the 5th Avenue Theatre and some improvements to Pike Place Market. It’s still incredibly striking, built into a hillside with an Internationalist style that showcases both the Puget Sound view in front of it and the greenbelt behind.

Minimalist concrete building blocks create some spectacular spaces here. The home opens to a cathedral-ceiling dining room with an open second-floor hallway above. A wide, sunken living room keeps the ceilings tall so there’s more room for three walls of windows facing the water. Multiple terraces stack into the design: a wraparound patio on the ground floor, a massive second-floor balcony shared by the master bedroom and an open den, and a smaller tree-lined deck at the back of the home.

There are all sorts of posh, miscellany here, too, including an indoor waterfall, a koi pond, and two equipped kitchens. Plus: There is nary a power line between the home and the water.
