Location: Henry Island, Wash.
The Skinny: The little glass house, it seems, will always be with us, but this contemporary home on Washington State’s Henry Island adds a unique wrinkle to the basic four-glass-walls template to set itself apart. Instead of designing one small glass house (or one gigantic windowed box) the architects here divided up the 2.700 square feet of living space into three separate modules, connected in the rear by a long, low-slung breezeway. The three bedrooms are spread out across the modules, with the largest of the glass compartments containing the living areas and kitchen. All of the rooms look out onto Nelson Bay and have sliding glass walls and doors to allow for—Pacific Northwest weather permitting—indoor/outdoor living. The 24-acre property comes with a private mooring buoy and docking rights, and is located just a short sail away from Roche Harbor. It’s asking $3.75M
