The Alki House
Click on a photo to enlarge.
This tightly crafted, highly detailed, award-winning home was a collaboration between Steve Zeasman and Philip Christofides. The home was developed on an undiscovered keyhole lot on the beach, at the south end of Alki Beach Park. The home is a reverse floor plan that allows daily life on the upper floors, away from the public view, but allows immersion in observation of life around it. The home features an elevator between the three levels, two bedroom suites, a third bedroom/guest/office/entertaining area, with fireplace and direct access to the beach, a fully finished garage that doubles as an entertaining room with wet bar, music, in floor hot tub, and doors and views to the beach.
The home features extensive built-in Mahogany cabinetry and furniture, high end audio/video experience throughout and many features designed to surprise and enjoy. The roof structure features beam and car decking construction of cabinet quality with no exposed fasteners and the corner dining room bifolding door system folds back to leave everyone wondering what supports the entire cantilevered roof system at the exposed corner. "Fireballs" grace an open hearth and warm the room. The home was published and can be viewed in "The House to Ourselves" by Todd Lawson and Tom Connor, published by Taunton Press 2004. It was also featured in "Coastal Retreats" by Universe publishing in 2002 and in Seattle Times coverage. Not the special "davit" light post, flag pole, and fish gargoyles that accent the landscape.
Our hats are off to the Constructive Energy crew. You are a great group of gifted craftsmen of the highest caliber. You always showed up with smiles on your faces and worked hard all day long with enormous pride and enthusiasm. You were considerate and treated us, one another and all of our neighbors and home with the utmost respect. Our place never felt like a construction site. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate each and every one of you.
