Contemporary villa, surrounded by gorgeous grounds.
This 3.67-acre estate property features a stunning contemporary villa designed by Roland Terry. It was one of the last residential projects by the master architect, who was revered for combining European classicism with Northwest modernism. Custom built for the current owners by Schultz Miller in the 1990’s, the 9,508-sq-ft house has two wings – one holds public areas, including elegant living and dining rooms with 11ꞌ beamed ceilings and a kitchen with a separate caterer’s area and an adjoining family room.
Four bedrooms, a library, pine-paneled media room, rec room and wine cellar are situated in a separate 2-level wing. Approached by long winding drive, the house has magnificent walnut doors flanked by columns, a low slung metal roof and stucco walls punctuated by floor-to-ceiling windows.
Nestled into a sloping landscape, the beautifully sited house looks out on expansive green lawns bordered by mature plantings. Acclaimed British landscape designer Penelope Hobhouse enhanced the grounds with formal gardens and a water feature. Multiple balconies and a large bluestone terrace sheltered by a wisteria-draped trellis seamlessly link interiors with lovely outdoor surroundings.
