lake wenatchee single family home
Steel Tree is a 2,400sf home near Lake Wenatchee in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. Just two hours away from the owner’s primary residence in Seattle, the house is a private refuge from the city. Nestled in among the trees at the edge of the golf course, the house offers a private, cozy feeling with a strong connection to nature.
The mixture of materials and colors create an inviting retreat home.
Custom built steel and wood stairs connect the flowing spaces of the open floor plan. Custom cabinetry of rich, warm walnut is found throughout the central living spaces. Strong accent wall colors highlight architectural elements and provide complimentary backdrops for the client’s large art collection.
The fireplace provides warmth on a snowy winter day and is the focus of the living room. Its sleek lines are covered with hand laid stone; an easy juxtaposition of modern design and traditional materials that create a completely unique feel for the space. The hearth extends to the side of the fireplace creating a window seat that continues outside defining the edge of the patio and providing outdoor seating.
