Resort Living in Newcastle
This luxurious estate of former Seahawk player is the epitome of modern luxury, offering everything a discerning buyer could desire – exquisite craftsmanship in every detail, careful design that incorporates state-of-the-art technology and convenience into all aspects of the home, and the provenance of a location directly on the 4th hole of Washington's premier golf course - The Golf Club at Newcastle. Designed to evoke its natural Northwest surroundings, this residence is a statement in native stacked stone and exceptionally crafted interior woodwork, with an overall aesthetic that is at once opulent and grand, yet lodge-like and inviting.
The main floor is a masterpiece of the woodworker’s art, featuring wide-plank hardwood floors throughout, extensive and ornate inlaid woodwork and custom built-ins, all complemented by an extraordinary palette of warm colors, Venetian plaster and exotic stone. A dramatic, two-story entry with marble inlays leads to living and dining areas that are defined by elegant columns, cherry paneling and box beam ceilings. Custom wrought iron railings curve up the graceful, flowing staircase, and a range of crystal and custom iron lighting fixtures and chandeliers illuminate all of the public spaces with a rich glow.
The kitchen is a gourmet’s dream, offering exquisite custom cherry cabinetry and a large island that opens into a luxurious den with gas fireplace and a custom media system. Appliances include a 48” Wolf Range, SubZero refrigeration, a warming drawer and multiple DCS dishwasher drawers. Granite counters, mosaic tile backsplashes, heated flooring and an oversized pantry complete this fabulous center of the home, while a butler’s pantry provides staging and refrigeration for fine wine, a prep sink and Miele built-in espresso maker.
Grand spaces and total privacy distinguish the opulently appointed master suite on the home’s second level, with its own fireplace, private sitting area and luxurious custom-organized closet. The balcony offers peaceful views, built-in speakers and heaters, while the bath is a veritable spa, with a fireplace-accented soaking tub, huge walk-in shower, heated marble flooring and integrated television and sound. Additional guest suites can be found on both main and upper levels of the residence, and all feature intricate molding, luxurious en-suite baths and oversized spaces for comfort and privacy.
This residence offers a truly one-of-a-kind collection of amenities in its 8800 square feet of living space that set it apart as a bastion of entertainment and fine living options for every taste. A fully autonomous office is perfect for the home-based executive, while a private sports bar with full kitchen, gaming tables and custom wine cellar is the perfect place for private parties and keeping track of the big game when not otherwise occupied playing pool in the billiards parlor, enjoying the home theater, working out in the state-of-the-art home gym or relaxing in the personal spa.
