Home Tour This Sunday
Amid iconic homes by the likes of famed Seattle architects Roland Terry and (coming very soon) Tom Kundig, this modern Madison Park stunner by architect Eric Cobb certainly stands out yet manages to blend perfectly into its environs. Northwest Home editor Shannon O'Leary goes into all the delicious home-design details here, but you can get a gratis glimpse of the manor for yourself (4100 E Highland Drive) on Sunday, July 21, from noon to 3 p.m.
I can't get enough of the home's sophisticated play space, pictured left. I may just have to take a twirl on the jungle bars during my walk through!
And keep this little nugget of news on your radar:
Our first Explore Design Home Tour, which will feature from six to eight architect-designed homes, is happening on September 14. Since 2005, we have partnered with AIA Seattle to present a bimonthly open house tour to showcase one home selected by AIA Seattle and Northwest Home. While we will continue to feature a selected home in every issue, there will no longer be a coinciding tour. For more details, visit aiaseattle.org/hometour.
