In a recent feature for Curbed Seattle, Tom Trimbath highlights Home of the Rising Sun, a stunning waterfront property represented by myself and Kristi Nelson! In the piece, entitled “Mix Three Styles in One $5.9M Bainbridge Mansion,” Trimbath talks price, location and outlines three styles that fuse to create the perfect balance in the 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom home situated on 3.97 acres.
In Home of the Rising Sun, there is a way the morning light reflects on the rich wood paneling and the sound of the waves restores the soul. And as Curbed outlines, the blend of “Mission Style, Craftsman, and Asian influences,” are evident upon arrival: “The long entrance ending at artistic wood and glass doors opening onto a two story foyer with a curving staircase set the tone for the house: grand and providing every opportunity to show off the view outside and inside. Even with such obvious wealth, none of the formal spaces are ostentatious or overly decorated.”
The circular floor plan of the home allows for open spaces and a sense of homeliness that is complemented by the lush gardens. As Trimbath notes, “the Asian influence is obvious in the landscaping, with an arched bridge over a pond in a rock garden. The moss is taking hold, as it should” and he even imagines that “the ornamental trees should be blossoming about now.”
The real appeal of the home? For Curbed it is the view, which Trimbath says “you’ll probably notice first because it is 347 feet of waterfront that looks out on Blakely Harbor. Walk down to the beach and see Seattle’s skyline, a place you can get to after a 35 minute ferry line.”
