The Highlands at the edge of Seattle’s north city limits has some fabulous homes, but none may be as cool as this 1971 Highlands home. The spacious modern stucco residence sits in a beautiful private setting among impressive conifer trees and magical landscape. One enters the property while stepping on stone pavers that seem to float above the serene pond. Once reaching the home a significant mahogany door opens to the travertine entry and the impressive atrium glass ceiling that brings light to two of the home’s floors. Walking through the home, one can only be impressed with the fine teak millwork accentuates the contemporary design & open, rich architecture. Vestibule with round atrium window is a striking venue for art display, and opens into the main floor rooms with floor to ceiling windows. Huge kitchen, five expressive fireplaces, private master suite, lower level with perfect game room and guest suite. The expansive grounds are both dramatic and restful whether walking among the trails and the trees or playing in the pool or sport court.
With grand scale, modern design, contemporary floor plan and one of a kind setting, this home presents and extraordinary opportunity to live in the Seattle Highlands community.
The historic Innis Arden neighborhood in the Shoreline area is in the spotlight of the Seattle Times this week; with it’s mere 534-home small town appeal, watershed park, and beautiful private beach, it’s no surprise why so many seek to call this enchanted forest home.

Over the past few decades, very few of the homes here have changed hands, moving from one generation to the next, and when houses were sold, they did so within days, especially those under the $1 million mark. The neighborhood itself sits on more than 675 acres, with no sidewalks in sight, and no overhead streetlights. Many of those seeking to move to the area are taking after local aerospace hero Bill Boeing, who took off 80 years ago in search for a serene hunting and fishing retreat from his mansion in the Highlands, and stumbled upon Innis Arden. For more information on the neighborhood and it’s connection to the Highlands area, visit the Seattle Times.
