Rainier loaded with amenities
A vaulted great room is at the core of the Rainier, a mid-size ranch-style home loaded with popular amenities. Its wood and stone exterior gives it a distinctly Northwestern flavor.
This is a bright home. Vaulted ceilings expand the sense of spaciousness in the window-rich great room and kitchen. More light washes in through two perky dormers - one over the entry, the other in the dining room. Sliders in the great room open onto a large, partially covered patio, ideal for outdoor dining.
Plants (as well as people) flourish in the naturally illuminated eating nook, where a plant shelf spans the rear and two banks of cupboards flank a handy built-in desk. The large kitchen has plenty of counter and storage space, including a roomy walk-in pantry and an L-shaped work island with a raised eating bar. Sink and dishwasher are built into the island.
Double doors to the right of the entry swing open into the dining room. Another set to the left access a room that could be furnished as a study, office, living room, or even a nursery or guest room.
The vaulted master suite boasts two walk-in closets, one quite a bit larger than the other, and a cheerful rounded bay, complete with window seat. Luxuries in the master bath include: a double vanity, a spa tub with yet another plant shelf, a large doorless shower with multiple showerheads and a private toilet.
Utilities, a closet, and basement stairs are adjacent to the Rainier's garage and secondary bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a window seat, and both have direct access to a two-section bathroom.
