The couple who live in this Lake Washington waterfront home made the decision to upgrade when they became empty nesters. The view didn’t change entirely, it just expanded considerably. Adding upper story master and guest suites gave their home a new dimension in more ways than one. It’s virtually a completely new house, but the same home ready for new memories.
“Before” photo showing the home prior to construction start. The existing roof was removed and a new upper floor added, including a master bedroom/ bath and a guest bedroom/bath. The master suite, with an expansive view of Lake Washington, extends to the width of the home.
“After” photo shows the new upper floor, finished construction. New roofs, eyebrow roof at main level, and new interiors. Much craftsmanship went into this project, including a custom-made stair system. This remodel was unique in that the new upper floor was built over the existing ceiling of the main floor while the owners lived in the home.
Master Bedroom. This light-filled and stylish new master bedroom captures a 180 degree view of the lake, sunrises and Cascade Mountains. Extending to the width of the waterfront, it was designed for gazing as far as the eye can imagine. The sitting area and window seat see to that. The nearly 13-foot high exterior wall in the master bedroom, with 8-foot windows and French doors, maximizes the view of Lake Washington.
Master Bath. The new master bath combines modern conveniences with slick style, including vessel sinks on slab countertop. The convenience of the stacking washer/dryer makes for easy, accessible laundering.
Guest Bedroom and Bath. This breezy and cozy second bedroom/bath in the new addition was designed with every guest’s comfort in mind. It’s private and welcoming.
