Welcome to 494 Hunt Road, Port Angeles. This AIA award winning home is stunningly sited on a natural promontory with sweeping 180 degree views overlooking the mouth of the Elwha River to the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Mt Baker, and the Olympic Mountains.
A authentic Pacific Northwest retreat rich with local history, this innovative home is a masterpiece of rugged natural materials and refined, enduring design that is both sophisticated and sensitive to the magnificent natural setting. Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass set between massive beach-weathered logs and solid fir beams, multiple glass doors to entertaining sized patios, decks, breezeways, and a protective perimeter of overhanging soffits allows one to live as if the outdoors is a seamless continuation of the luxurious interior.
A massive river rock fireplace is the heart of the home flanked by a library and dining area under a soaring exposed beam ceiling supported by the massive logs hand selected from Pysht River beach by the home’s acclaimed Seattle architect, Norman Sandler. Culinary adventures abound in a renovated kitchen with newer appliances, old-growth vertical grain Douglas fir cabinetry, Corian counters, a dedicated baking station and two walk-in pantries. The adjoining family room with built-in desk area offers yet another breathtaking view of the Olympic Mountains.
The intimate and inviting den with a wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookcases offers an additional respite. Two additional bedrooms, both with lovely mountain, garden and river views; a spacious main floor bath; powder room; laundry and gear/mud room round out the main floor amenities.
The dramatic open staircase to the upper level suite leads to an inviting sanctuary with spa-like amenities. Take in commanding views from the master bedroom where an open-beam ceiling and wood-burning fireplace meet a private deck with surround sound speakers. Step into the large dressing room, complemented by an en-suite bath with generously proportioned steam shower, soaking tub, heated tile floor, and twin sinks flanking a view window.
Over three acres, the estate comprises a separate studio/gym building, covered Endless lap pool, hot tub, outdoor shower, cedar-lined greenhouse, two car garage with attached workshop, raised garden beds, fenced orchard, fire pit, expansive lawn with ornamental borders and privacy forest of mature fir, cedar and madrone trees. The property adjoins the Elwha Place community riverfront parcel and is located just minutes to local surfing beach at the mouth of the restored Elwha River and nearby dedicated Discovery and Adventure bicycle trails from Port Townsend to La Push.
This is a perfect home for those who seek an invigorating resort lifestyle surrounded by a seamlessly integrated experience of indulgent simplicity. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
