A Spectacular Pacific Northwest Home Remodeled by Tom Kundig Asks $3.45M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo / Published by Dwell

This Pacific Northwest gem is set on a 3.26-acre forested lot just 20 minutes from downtown Seattle.

Originally built in 1977, and remodeled in 2000 by Seattle-based architect Tom Kundig, this expansive home is located in The Highlands, a cooperative community in Shoreline, Washington. The home's spacious interiors connect to the outdoors with immense pivot doors, and floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the surrounding forest. 

Much of the home—including the soaring library-like bookshelves—is constructed of mahogany sourced from Benaroya Hall—the home of the Seattle Symphony. The property also includes a finished basement, a heated pool, and fruit trees.

The grand entrance to the home features a full-height steel pivot door.

Ben Soleimani Nahla Rug

Pairing a clean, linear look with a sumptuous feel, the Nahla is hand-woven by master artisans from silken, blended yarns that create a dense, generous pile. Tonal gradients of color seem to shift with the light. Our rugs are artisan crafted and no two are alike. Ben is inspired by the natural variations within fibers, textures and weaves; each one of our handcrafted rugs is slightly unique.
