This is your 2020 dream house on steroids. Privacy. Seclusion. Oceanfront access. Incredible views. And that’s before you even get a glimpse of the breathtakingly beautiful home that goes along with it.
This 4,305-square-foot stunner is located in scenic Long Beach, Washington. Travel brochures tout the region as a place to go when you “need to get away—like really away.” It’s also situated on the world’s longest beachfront peninsula, stretching 28 miles along Washington’s southwest coast.
The house itself is a modern, aesthetically-pleasing oasis in a new normal paradise. Built by Replinger Hossner Osolin Architects, it aptly reflects the firm’s mission to create spaces uniquely suited to the environment.
It’s a home designed for comfort and luxury living.
A stylish tribute to its natural, awe-inspiring surroundings. Concrete, wood, and metal blend seamlessly together to integrate indoors and out.
Walls of windows sport picturesque views—the focal point of the open, airy main living space. A wood-burning fireplace adds warmth, working in tandem with underfloor radiant heat. The stone-walled dining area sits directly adjacent. Soaring two-story vaulted ceilings overlook both.
Opposite, a gourmet kitchen features stainless appliances, reflective metal counters, open cabinetry, and a wood-topped eating island. Long hallways lead to separate ensuite sleeping quarters at each end. Bedrooms sport large windows, oversized closets, and modern baths. There’s also a sleeping nook with built-in bunk beds.
A second-floor loft offers additional live/work/play space. Whimsical touches abound, including a wall made of reclaimed chalkboards. A ladder leads up to a landing providing panoramic 360-degree views. The ocean, native landscape, dunes, even a 30-acre butterfly habitat are all within view.
Outside, the nirvana-like feeling continues.
Patio and deck space are available at every turn. A long concrete table is tailor-made for al fresco dining. A second wood-burning fireplace and two enclosed courtyards are for enjoying the views and outdoors year round. And in inclement weather, wooden shutters roll down to protect from the elements.
The ocean and its sandy beaches are just a walk away. We can already imagine the sunsets, sipping a glass of Washington State Woodward Canyon 2017 Chardonnay. (Named “best splurge” by Seattle magazine.)
Post stay-at-home orders, Long Beach Peninsula offers a myriad of activities from fishing, crabbing, and clamming to bird and whale watching. It’s an easy, scenery-filled drive to both Seattle and Portland.
Priced at $1.405 million, it’s the answer to our pandemic prayers.
“We aspire to design buildings that will age gracefully—places that will be a constant source of pride,” says the RHO website.
