Kingston chalet description

Here is a more detailed description...

Insulated from the outside world, yet only minutes by air or ferry from downtown Seattle lies some of the best waterfront in the Western United States. This cozy chalet graces the shores of Puget Sound in a private enclave. The 100 feet of high-bank waterfront offers a commanding 180 degree view of Mt Baker, the Cascade Mountains, the town of Kingston, parts of Seattle, ferry crossings and shipping lanes -- a breathtaking view that never grows old.

The inside boasts 3,000 square feet of cozy chalet design and architecture. Large windows let in plenty of natural light. You will enjoy rustic elegance with an abundance of wood; gleaming oak floors, pine ceilings and high quality carvings that add just the right finishing touch. There are 3 levels, with 1 bedroom and 1 private bathroom on each level. Two additional twin beds are located upstairs for those who prefer a single bed. Equipped with 4 quality HDTV's, there are plenty of options for one's viewing pleasure. Each bedroom has its own TV; one 32" and two 42". The enormous 60" HDTV, located in the living room, is complete with DVD, DVR and BluRay players. When you're not mesmerized by the spectacular day & night views it's fun to snuggle up to your loved one, gather the family or group together with popcorn and enjoy the absolute best in satellite TV. You'll have access to Direct TV's "Premier" package with over 30 commercial-free movie channels, dozens of top sports channels and more (over 285 channels!).

Built with the exquisite view in mind, you'll find yourself captivated by nature’s amazing displays of rich viewing pleasure. Wildlife is often seen. Eagles habitually perch on the tall Doug Fir trees right above the house. The adjacent woods provide a sanctuary for a variety of other birds, and it is common to spot deer meandering through the property early in the morning. The best part is the ever-changing landscape of ferries, cruise ships, freighters, tugboats, sailboats, motor boats, and every other kind of watercraft that quietly make their way through the shipping lanes.

A set of stairs leads to the clam, crab and oyster laden beach. It’s wonderful to walk along the clean beach with few people around. It's like your very own private beach. On those special occasions you can sight Orca whales pass by.

Come to this special place and enjoy a piece of Puget Sound paradise. We look forward to seeing you soon!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: I am a Seattle native who loves the Northwest. As a real estate broker, I have a passion for helping people find a home that fits their unique style. I love to hear the positive reactions from people having found a place they like to call home. I'm confident you'll have a positive reaction when you stay in this chalet, calling it home for your vacation.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kingston:
                      My family and I feel this is truly some of the best waterfront in the Northwest. It is close enough to Seattle to be a part of the city's excitement, yet feels a world away. It's the perfect blend of waterfront and view; small town, mountain, wildlife and majestic ocean. Watching the dozens of trips that the ferryboats make each day is a popular, peaceful pastime and it is my favorite part about this special place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      Total rest and relaxation. My favorite room in the house is full of windows. I love to grab a cup of hot tea and sit in the hammock to soak up the view. Day and night I like to watch the boats (especially the iconic Washington State Ferries) peacefully make their journeys. This is a perfect retreat unto itself.
