This beautiful 5,000 SF. custom home is the newest member of the Schenkar Construction Design/Build fleet. This gorgeous home blends into a magnificent (5) acre estate-style forested property at the foothills of Tiger Mt. in Issaquah, WA. Completely surrounded by a mature forest of cedar and pine trees, this home blends into nature with elevated views, creating a tree house dynamic. The home has a wide inviting floor plan with (5) bedrooms, (5) bathrooms and expansive (18′) vaulting ceilings with floor to ceiling windows capturing all the natural light. A large chef’s kitchen with an oversized island allows for the maximum culinary experience, with luxury appliances, an (8) burner 1,200 BTU range, and a stone-clad hood. The family room and dining room boast 1,800 SF of entertainment area for family and friends to enjoy maximum comfort and scale. The home is equipped with maximum efficiency infrastructure, including radiant floor hydronic heat and on-demand domestic hot water with unlimited capacity. The diaphragm of the exterior walls has blown-in natural insulation to minimize heat loss and maintain maximum ambient warmth during winter and cooling during summer. Given the materials selections, insulation, heating, domestic hot water and efficient energy consumption, this home functions with a 30-35% lower operating cost then an average new home. These features significantly reduce energy consumption and help lower overall maintenance costs over the life of the building. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and there is also a separate ADU apartment with a second kitchen. All materials were custom sourced and imported per the clients’ specific aesthetic requirements.
