This contemporary residence, with warming wood treatments and walls of glass, was originally designed as a minimalist artist's retreat by architect David Hertz in the late 1980s. A floating glass staircase and a lounge with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace are among updates to the duplex, which includes a three-bedroom main house and a one-bedroom office/guest suite. Overlooking Carroll Canal, a rooftop deck invites entertaining with a fire pit and outdoor kitchen.
