Customized with every luxury in mind, this environmentally-friendly container home was built and designed by the owner Edward Merced. The interior surprises around every corner, blending Asian and Industrial design aesthetics with a unique, modern flair. Built in 2015 and previously featured on HGTV, this one-of-a-kind container home consists of 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 4,074 sq ft and is nestled on 17,424 sq ft lot where one can enjoy nature in the Japanese-style garden which includes an orchard with fruit bearing trees: Kiwi, Pomegranate, Fig, Persimmon, Bing cherry, Plums, Asian pear, and Honeycrisp apple and a special green house. The courtyard Koi pond is visible from all areas of the home, including the aquarium glass in the Sunken conversation pit and the stylish open bar with hand-carved Balinese wood countertops. Entertain in the covered outdoor kitchen with concrete counters and views of the gorgeous grounds.
Built using 11 shipping containers, which are stacked and rotated while integrated into a wood frame structure with concrete walls and beautifully placed windows, it has a variety of unique, hand-picked, recycled materials throughout. The commercial grade kitchen with a large natural stone island and heated concrete floors creates a wonderful gathering place for family and friends. The partial views of the Columbia River from various areas of the home add to the beauty of this space. Take your pick of an office upstairs or downstairs, or a traditional Japanese tea or meditation room, a family room upstairs with an indoor atrium, or a multifunctional area upstairs for crafts or homeschooling. Imagine sleeping in a main level Treehouse master bedroom. This home is appealing to the individual or the entertainer with its Architectural design & creative elements throughout the home. The secluded location is near necessary amenities, the airport, the Columbia River and freeways. Truly a magnificent home!
