The famous Swiss architect, Le Corbusier, once said, “The purpose of construction is to make things hold together, of architecture to move us.” He could have been speaking about 5 Althea St, residence of a respected architect and a gifted carpenter who together have created this work of art tucked away on a tree-lined street in a favorite uptown neighborhood. From stem to stern, this house wastes not an inch when it comes to detail. Douglas fir French door opens to a quarry tiled foyer lit by heart cypress sconces. Living room is an open space with a gabled tongue and groove ceiling that extends to the dining area, kitchen and sun room. Built-in bookcase/media center anchors the room and a large skylight provides extra sunshine.

Your culinary muse will be inspired in this masterpiece kitchen. Walnut cabinets and shelves, Italian Carrera marble, Heath Ceramic tile at the coffee station stainless Thermador 30″ gas range with hood, Summit refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and a bartop with seating for 4 round out the room with splendid detail and functionality.
