Tucked away in the affluent suburb of Kirkland, Washington is a secret tropical paradise. Rebuilt in 2007 by an ambitious owner who designed and sourced the materials himself, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home at 1834 9th Street West is an exotic one-of-a-kind dwelling for the area.

Described by the listing agent as “a hint of Palm Springs with an Asian flair,” the home just hit the market for $2.1 million. The real showstopper is the backyard, where a few key features create a distinct departure from the usual northwest fare. The outdoor space features a swimming pool bordered by palm trees (palm trees? In the northwest?), a covered barbecue pavilion and a small guest house.

Inside, the home is just as gorgeous. Large glass sculptures hang from the ceiling and huge windows fill the home with natural light.

The kitchen gleams with modern new appliances, dark wood finishes and polished concrete floors.

Imagine having a dinner party in this dining room. Even just eating alone at the head of the table could be an exciting experience.

Welcome to secret tropical Kirkland!
