Built as the first personal residence by renowned architect, George Suyama, this beach retreat is commonly known as Fauntleroy 1. Steps to the no bank waterfront just north of the Vashon ferry dock, the Zen design is evocative of Suyama's Japanese heritage and the inspiration of his mentor, Gene Zema. Lush use of wood, metal and organic materials, the timeless design frames west facing vistas of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountain peaks. A sense of calm and serenity belies the proximity to downtown Seattle--close by but a world away.
