House of the Day: 'Ripley Lane' in Renton, Wash.

Lakeside modern built for entertaining in the Pacific Northwest

Location: Renton, Wash.
Price: $2,488,000
The Skinny: This 3,800-square-foot glass and concrete number lies on 70 feet of Lake Washington waterfront and features a "spa," media room, deep-water mooring, and boulder-lined swimming pool. Apparently, all those luxuries didn’t leave space in the glass cube for more than two bedrooms. The upper level, with soaring ceilings and walls of glass, makes for a stunning entertaining space, particularly the massive kitchen and dining area with space for 10. Twenty minutes from downtown Seattle, the house has views over the water to Mercer Island. So what’s the downside? The six-lane Interstate 405 practically runs through the backyard.
