Get fancy by the slopes.
Less than two miles from the Summit at Snoqualmie and a mile from Hyak Sno-Park, this A-frame has a classic, woodsy design—but it’s anything but rustic. The brand-new, prefab home by Bellingham-based Bldhouse is built not just for ski weekends, but a long-term mountain lifestyle.
Modern interior design by Ryan Stephenson is luxurious, but doesn’t upstage the woodsy setting. Exposed fir finishes, including some Douglas fir, provide their own minimalist decor, accented by exposed iron beams. The steeply pitched roof towers over the living area, gathered around a wood-burning fireplace. In the kitchen—which, while equipped with upscale appliances, has a simple, open design—the roof drops to normal height to make room for the upper levels.
In the home’s peak, past a loft landing, there are two bedrooms. One has a soaring vaulted ceiling that reaches all the way up to the top of the A. The other has a private balcony overlooking the woods.
Another feature uncommon to the A-frame ski cabin: A basement has a tiled utility room for an easy apres-ski routine and storage, plus a second bathroom.
160 Cascade Place—one of several upscale Snoqualmie Pass homes listed as The Pass Life—is on the market for 746,000 through Windermere.
