Designed by James Cutler, the Beaux Arts House is inspired by its natural setting in Washington. The contemporary dwelling integrates five existing old-growth Douglas firs into its 5,565-square-foot footprint. Its two wings weave through the trees creating a U shape with a central courtyard. Throughout the open layout, walls of glazing highlight views of the timbers while also connecting living spaces to the surrounding landscape both visually and physically. The interior is divided between public and private zones and is comprised of five ensuite bedrooms, an office, and a media room. As part of the Beaux Arts community, the property includes access to 1,100 feet of beachfront, a boat launch, and tennis courts.
