Bienvenue à La Maison. Boasting strong traditional lines and unmatched elegance, this French Country style home blends the reverie of old-world charm with the present-day comforts of technology, sustainability, and luxury. Thoughtfully designed to accommodate various stages in life, this spacious single level is an ideal forever home and a rare find in the Pacific Northwest.
Distressed cedar beams support a copper porch roof, balanced by stucco and stone cladding reminiscent of old European country estate. Double doors welcome you into a grand foyer featuring a herringbone tile inlay and a two-story dormer glowing with natural light. Custom built-ins in the den are equipped with a high-tech home network platform to centralize essential devices and support the integrated whole-home automation system.
Enter the open great room and kitchen area to find the ideal dinner party setting. The round dining table, oversized kitchen island, and wet bar encourage intimate regales and family-style dinners. Open the double patio sliding doors to extend your living space into the calming outdoors where Stafford’s picturesque countryside is the perfect backdrop to emulate a European Café. Sip a finely aged cabernet under the twinkling stars while listening to the crackling fire and peaceful stream of the fountain. Meander down the flagstone path to play croquet on the lawn, or retreat to the charming potting shed for an afternoon of gardening.
With a master suite detailed in floor to ceiling wainscot, elegant wallpaper, romantic sconce lighting, and a marvelous ensuite with heated floors, it is evident monsieur et madame de la maison have an affinity for the finer things in life. The corner bathroom vanity allows for spatial independence with a hint of togetherness, while the walk-in shower and built-in bench provide an elevated aesthetic with age-in-place practicality. Look closely as you admire yourself in the decorative full-length closet mirror — there is more here than meets the eye.
High ceilings, vintage fixtures, and handcrafted finish work add subtle extravagance to this purposeful home. Whether your world traveling days are far from over, or you’re eager to settle down into the finer half of life, you will find your hard-earned resting place in La Maison.
