On the Boards: Hunter Point Residence
Set on the tip of Hunter Point in southern Puget Sound, this house looks east across the water at undeveloped Squaxin Island. Views of the Olympic Mountains to the north, Mt Rainier to the southeast and a sandy beach just a stone's throw from the porch complete the setting. Our client was enamored of the Shingle Style architecture of the east coast and sought to create a home that evokes the sense of history and permanence that such architecture inspires. A constrained footprint led to the design of a narrow house, barely more than one room deep from front to back, with generous light-filled areas on the main floor. Bedrooms are located on the middle level. A third floor entertaining room enjoys the most spectacular views, especially from the deck nestled into the roof at the north end of the house.
