Elegant Estate on Lake Washington

Michael Taylor, the famed American interior designer, spawned the California style -- and these massive doors look like they could have come from one of his collections.

No car? No problem. At Villa a Lago in Hunts Point, Wash., you and your guests can avoid gridlock by mooring your boats at the home’s private yacht-sized dock.

Built in 1989, this 6,869-square-foot contemporary mansion features a vaulted ceiling and French doors that lead outside to Lake Washington. The home’s tranquil setting, abundant fountains and lush landscaping promote the feel of a secluded retreat, yet Villa a Lago is only a 20-minute drive from downtown Seattle.

Inside, the home exudes elegance and ambiance, making it the perfect party venue with its marbled, mantled fireplace, gourmet kitchen and great room. The soaring ceilings of the expansive formal living room, combined with the numerous faceted doors and windows, give visitors unparalleled views of the surrounding mountains and waterways.

After a night of entertaining, the home’s master bedroom promises relaxation with a spa, steam room, and heated marble floors around a jetted tub.
