Originally built in the late 1970s, the home was re-envisioned by renown Redding Architects with interior design by Shosi Cohen. No expense was spared in a $1.2 million expansion and remodel that went “down to the studs” with new electrical, plumbing, appliances, HVAC, floors, walls, and more. High-tech living comes together with a kitchen in-wall sound system connected to Sonos and an in-wall home theater in the downstairs living room with Bowers & Willkins speakers. Embrace an energy efficient opportunity with new insulation, LED lighting, a ductless/invisible HVAC with 5 separate units controlled via thermostat or smart phone, and pre-wiring for solar panels on the roof. Over $60K in custom cabinetry throughout the home includes a 9x10 foot bookshelf, while a hidden passageway under the house with a concealed door connects to the downstairs hallway.
Extensive French drains around the front and backyard connect to a rain water well that overflows to the street as needed. The ample backyard is ready for lawn games and summer cookouts, while a concealed gate provides direct access to the Kirkland Cross Corridor Trail and all the recreation that living in Kirkland provides.
