Welcome to Lake Sammamish living! Escape to this 8 mile long scenic lake only 4 miles to Microsoft HQ and 10 miles to Seattle that feels like a far away summer home. Eagles soar overhead and salmon swim by your dock, as you relax at the beach firepit, after a full day of boating.
This gorgeous apartment is a fully furnished large one bedroom, bath, living room/kitchen on the first floor with a separate entrance. It is on the Lake Sammamish waterfront with views for miles down the lake to the snowcapped peaks of the cascade mountains.
It was fully renovated recently including all new kitchen and appliances, radiant heat tile floor, granite counters, maple cabinets, queen size bed, large oriental rug, 48” TV with DirectTV DVR, couch, desk, executive chair, printer, glass dining table, dishwasher, washer & dryer.
It's fully furnished, first class, with everything you need, plates, glasses, silverware, pots, towels, linens, napkins, premium kitchen appliances (coffee maker, microwave, margarita machine/blender, food processor), iron, hair dryer, clock radio, - if you need it, and we don’t have it, we will get it.

We have a 120’ dock, with a fast 22’ Cobalt powerboat, 4 small sailboats, 2 stand-up paddleboards, 2 kayaks, and 2 windsurfers, as well as fishing gear, plus all the lifejackets, wakeboards, inflatable tubes etc. These are available for your use (once you are checked-out on knowing how to use them – and we can teach you). I'll need to ride along on the powerboat for insurance reasons.
Across the street (literally) is 80 acre Weowna Park with miles of old growth forest trails for hiking/jogging.
We live in the upper floors of the home, so check-in/check-out is easy and we are there if you need anything.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I'm a consultant working at Microsoft, and since 2007 have rented to co-worker contractors on short term projects. Having lived out of hotels and corporate apartments, for 18 months before my family moved out, I know what a pain that is.
By buying a house with an extra apartment which I rent out, I was able to swing a gorgeous home on the lake instead of the “regular house” that I could afford.
We have been listing on VRBO/HomeAway for about a yea and can provide past corporate renter references.
Why the Owner Chose Bellevue: Living on the lake has been a dream, as I'm an avid sailor, boater, and learning to fish. Living in my 'vacation home' year-round makes it great to cut out on a sunny day, to go wakeboarding, without having to plan and pack up the family. I can work from my home office overlooking the lake, yet be 10 minutes from an unscheduled client meeting even in rush hour.
Living in Seattle, you learn the weather is unpredictable, most days Fall through Spring have some sun and some rain, so you need live on the water to get out quickly when the sun pops out for a few hours. We have the boats on power lifts so it's easy to be out on the water, 10 minutes after you say 'lets go'.
