The home is located on Portage Bay and was originally the Portage Bay Yacht Club. The home has a low profile from the street and then opens up to a 2-story space with an exterior deck facing Portage Bay.
The home straddles the shoreline, with the single story area built over the water on pilings. The 3 story portion of the home is built on the adjacent land and looks out over the floating homes below and out to Portage Bay and the University Draw Bridge beyond. The home is dominated by a distinctive 2 story commercial storefront window that wraps around the North and West facades. Copper clad abutments punctuate the home, forming a bay window in the master bedroom on the north and enclosing the garage on the south.
