Air, Water and Stone. These three elements could sum up the magical feel experienced once stepping onto the beautiful grounds of Westwold. Resting on a natural paradise of lush Northwest vegetation, centenarian cedars & tree-like rhododendrons, the home appears, fairy tale like, behind its private natural curtain of evergreens. One could easily envision Snow White walking out of the arched front door.
Over 9 acres and miles of sky peacefully lying on Puget Sound. The views are vast, and ferries look minuscule amidst the big stretch of blue.
Inside, the rooms are welcoming and warmed by the patina of oak paneling, antique lighting and details reminiscent of a brilliant past era… an intemporal place filled with magical and inspiring elements.
As one walks through the home, one feels privileged to be part, even for a moment, of this piece of Seattle’s history. The house was built by Woodway’s founder David Whitcomb Jr in 1924.
The magnificently designed pool offers serenity & peace.
Currently for sale, this estate is waiting for its next guardian who will preserve & maintain its breathtaking yet quiet beauty.
