Woodway Restoration

A European style manor, the Woodway Restoration exemplifies the seamless merging of old and new. Originally constructed in the 1920s, the Woodway home bears the work of Elizabeth Ayers, Washington State’s first female architect. Gelotte and Drivdahl carefully restored the historic home even as they added additional rooms and a separate entertaining pavilion. The home’s modern kitchen retains its old world charm with imported Tuscan tiles, retrofitted antique plumbing fixtures, and honed marble slabs. Verdant landscaping and climbing vines lend an air of whimsical historicity and longevity to the manor’s striking exterior.
