— ABOUT THE PROPERTY —
Welcome to Granite Creek Estate, a handcrafted main residence and guest house situated on 3 acres with sweeping views of the Stuart Mountains and Roslyn Ridge. Crafted almost completely from reclaimed and recycled materials, this ultimate retreat highlights the builder’s passion for detail, from thoughtful touches and fixtures to open spaces for all-season entertaining. Handcrafted doors give way to rich warm tones that contrast against steel and metal for an unparalleled mountain lodge lifestyle.
The main residence is an entertainer’s dream, featuring three master suites and an informal living space where a locally designed 48” gas fireplace flanked by Montana mountain rock meets a hidden 55” television complete with a remote control and telescoping arm. Step out onto a covered patio where sweeping views and stamped concrete surfaces complement a barbecue area, firepit for summer s’mores and hot tub for melting the day’s stress away.
Culinary enthusiasts will enjoy a chef’s kitchen where meals come alive across an 8-burner Wolf gas range with a double oven and hand formed rough edge countertops. The fir cabinets are recycled from a grain elevator and blend seamlessly with a wine fridge, concealed ice maker, trash compactor, full drawer dishwasher and wine fridge.
Each bathroom is a retreat, as custom poured concrete showers give way to heated towel racks and fixtures reclaimed from periods ranging from the early 1900s to the 1960s. Additional features of the home include a live edge stairway created from Sycamore slabs, concrete floors poured in place with 7 different radiant zones, an integrated indoor/outdoor Sonos sound system, RadioRa (Lutron) indoor/outdoor electronics, loft flooring reclaimed from Oregon, recycled wood, brick, hardware and barn doors, and a retrofitted London phone booth with touch lighting. A separate guest home provides unrivaled comfort for visitors, from the open concept living area and kitchen to the four master suites and extra bonus room.
Set amidst a backdrop of iconic Pacific Northwest forest, the home’s exterior is a fusion of Cascade Mountain Range stone and recycled Washington fir with Cor-Ten roofing. An extended handcrafted metal 2-car port a corchier with LED up/down lighting offers ease of entry, with steel grated steps to the garage and front door. The garage and paved access areas accommodate parking for up to 14 vehicles, with an automatic roll down garage door complete with a secured 600 square foot tool room, camera and speaker system, gladiator locking cabinet storage system, and walk-in safe. The hobbyist will enjoy an integrated compressor line, ample outlets, an electric hot water pressure washer with a spring loaded roll up hose, and 2 pass throughs for ATV/snowmobile ingress/egress.
Whether it’s a full-time residence or vacation home, the next steward will revel in a 9-camera integrated security system with mobile access and control. This one-of-a-kind opportunity is a retreat yet is located just 90 minutes from Seattle, Bellevue and Kirkland.
