It’s on a .37-acre lot and has three bedrooms, five bathrooms and a 1,200-bottle wine cellar. Its detached two-car garage includes an upper guest house.
The Warm Beach home has four levels and three decks that overlook Puget Sound. A private courtyard, garden areas, waterside hot tub and beach access are features of the yard.
Inside, a secret passage bookcase opens from the foyer to an office with white millwork and a French door to the patio.
Right of the foyer, the bathroom includes handicap access, a low-entrance shower and a pedestal sink.
