“The man who designed the Seattle skyline” is quite the title. But that’s essentially what late architect Jack Christiansen did in the mid-to-late 20th century — and now his self-designed and equally stunning home is for sale, too.

Jack was known for innovative concrete designs meant to endure, including roofs that were considered revolutionary. And that forward-thinking work is easily recognizable in the 1965 Bainbridge home as well. Hard lines can sometimes lead to brutalist-esque designs, but Jack’s clean shapes seem to open up the space.

The home details

  • $4,750,000
  • 2.03-acre plot, 3,426-sqft floorplan
  • Four bedrooms, four bathrooms
  • Features include a patio, an elevated deck, heated floors, a wet bar, walk-in closets, stairs that lead to a 175-foot beach, and panoramic views of the Puget Sound

The Kingdome was once where the Seahawks played.
