Throughout the first floor you’ll find radiant heated concrete flooring, stained and sealed with soy-based products. The floor literally warms your feet as you walk on it. The light-filled living room, at the front of the house, is furnished with two modern sofas, two orange wool Arne Jacobsen-inspired lounge chairs, a walnut Eames molded plywood coffee table, a 37 inch flat-screen TV, all centered around a stunning SPARK Modern Fire flame-only fireplace. The many windows look out on Newport Ave, and are outfitted with custom blinds, that can alternately filter and block out light. Adjacent to the living room area is the Japanese-inspired fully equipped gourmet kitchen with a long and lean Madrone kitchen peninsula offering a unifying element between living room and kitchen, and furnished with six Emeco aluminum stools. In the kitchen you’ll find a Thermador built-in refrigerator, Jenn-Air gas range, Bosch dishwasher, large cast iron sink with commercial pull-down sprayer, custom wheat board cabinetry with reclaimed black Walnut accents, as well as ample equipment for cooking, dining, and entertaining. Adjacent to the kitchen, accessed through the open hallway or through the pass-through kitchen countertop is the stylish dining area. The dining room is furnished with comfortable seating for six at the authentic Eames oval dining room table, and accompanying cast-aluminum Pensi-inspired chairs. Orbiting above the table is an authentic aluminum Titania light. Adjacent to the dining room is another custom-built workspace. Off the hallway leading to the single car garage is an elegant half-bath.

The master bath includes a Jacuzzi brand soaking tub, over-sized shower with bench, Italian tile surround & glass floor tiles, double-sinks set in Paperstone counter top, Grohe fixtures, a hydronic-heated towel rack, and warm radiant-heated cork flooring. Transom windows allow light to shine in while maintaining the privacy of your sanctuary. At the back of the second story, off the master suite, is a small, detail-drive balcony, perfect for taking in the cool night air from up high. On the opposite end of the second floor, you’ll find two bedrooms, one with a queen mattress, the other king, eco-wool carpet, and built-in custom desks and cabinets. The entire house is complimented by 9 ft ceilings with 8ft solid wood doors, so the three upstairs bedrooms are private, as needed, or open to the rest of the house.
