Polishing the woodwork in this 1975 neo-Tudor in
Champion Forest Champions Northwest might take a while. The property comes with a 6-pack of bedrooms, of bathrooms, and of fireplaces — as well as heaps of lumber in both structural and decorative forms, starting with the half-timbering (and other-half-bricking) out front.
A note to agents in the listing brags that the home made some sort of appearance in Architectural Digest when it was young — who wouldn’t want to see the indoor pool? It was put on the market 6 months ago, but the listing expired in mid-June. Now it’s back with a new agency but the same asking price: $1,399,000.
The foyer’s parquet flooring, paneled door, skinny trim, and rugged columns (above) anchor their side of an open floor plan. In the adjacent living area (below), floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving transitions into a steeply pitched ceiling of tray paneling. Beyond it all is a light-boosting wall of windows that looks into the enclosed outdoor recreation area — just off the adjacent golf course:
Beyond the butcher-block counter (above) of the wet bar — 1 of 3 mentioned in the listing — the kitchen (below) adds brick and tile to the interior finishes. Here, wallpaper takes the place of ceiling panels:
Another fireplace appears in the breakfast area (below), which has a section of laminate countertop to match that in the kitchen:
This formal living room also has a timber colonnade — off the front hall off the foyer:
Painted an appetite-igniting red, the dining room has only a hint of the wooden accents so generously deployed elsewhere in the 7,698-sq.-ft. home:
Paneling and decorative ceiling beams are present but less ornate in this study (which maybe counts as the sixth bedroom cited in the listing?):
Lumber also tops the slumber in the master suite, which is on the first floor and has sliding doors leading outside:
Reflections in the master bathroom’s vanity mirror show a second vanity occupying the opposite wall:
Timber in the secondary bedrooms is reserved for painted built-ins:
The brick-paved indoor-outdoors comes with a dozen skylights, and if that’s not enough wattage, there are massive chandeliers hanging from the rafters. The 2-plus-story structure accommodates a wall of picture windows facing the golf course, (yet another) wet bar, and a down-a-step swimming pool with a hint of a grotto and waterfall at its far end:
Located off a leg of the Cypress course at the Champions Golf Club, the home has a $730 annual maintenance fee. From the street, a circular driveway cuts across the front of the three-quarter-acre lot and includes a shunt to the over-sized 2-car garage:
