The Treehouse

UNDISCLOSED, QUILCENE
3 BEDROOMS | 2 BATHROOMS | 2,250 SQUARE FEET

Built in 1980, the Treehouse is sited on Hood Canal’s Dabob Bay and is considered an architectural gem crafted of cedar, glass, and stone. Nestled within 21 acres of Douglas Fir forest, this private refuge in the woods has over 1,400 square feet of waterfront footage. With Olympic Mountain views, streams, waterfalls, trails, and a beautiful, sandy beach, this magical oasis is the perfect retrieve from your busy life.

Both the main home and the guest cottage boast walls clad in vertical grain fir, hand-peeled log poles that stretch the length of the interior and rift and quartered white oak floors that have been stained a dark walnut. Multiple stone fireplaces, fixtures, and hardware lend an industrial feel and compliment the interiors nicely. Full kitchen with clean lines blends seamlessly with the rest of the home. Decks and porches allow many options for al-fresco dining, taking in the views, and enjoying nature. Only an hour’s ride from Winslow, and yet a world away from the hustle-bustle of city life. A true Pacific Northwest retreat to cherish.  

Offered at $2,300,000

 

A History Lesson

The “Treehouse” was designed by award winning architect Tom Bosworth and the guest house was the last structure that he worked on before his retirement. Bosworth came to Seattle in 1968 to serve as Chair of the Department of Architecture at the University of Washington, a position he held until 1972; he continued thereafter as a professor of architecture until his retirement about 2003.  In 1971 he was commissioned to develop designs for the Pilchuck Glass School. Bosworth’s residential practice flowered in the 1980s and has continued to the present. Between 1980 and 2004, Bosworth was responsible for the design of approximately 60 single-family residences across the Northwest, many of them vacation homes in rural settings. With their symmetries, axial composition and studied proportions, Bosworth’s designs often show the influence of his classical background. Over the years, Bosworth’s work was recognized with numerous design awards. His architectural practice is now carried on as Bosworth Hoedemaker Architecture in Seattle, Washington.
