Bellingham house description

Welcome to Northwest Modern. This house is warm and inviting befitting the northwest, yet clean and minimal in the modern style. I think the home is the perfect luxurious getaway for two, as well as a comfortable fit for a large family or group of up to ten. The home has heated floors, dimmers on most lights and WiFi high speed cable internet access throughout. Set just across North Shore from beautiful Lake Whatcom your view through nearly floor to ceiling glass windows and doors will be dominated by the lake, it's wild life and the sunsets that bring each day to a close.

The top floor is a master suite and features a library, a large master bedroom with a flat screen TV, a large bathroom with a walk in shower and four body sprays, as well as a huge deck.

The main floor houses the kitchen, dining, living, and powder rooms. The kitchen is in the modern style with stainless steel appliances, gas stove, microwave, and island. The living room is bright and open and features a fireplace and another flat screen TV. There is another deck on this floor with a barbeque, outdoor furniture and retractable awnings.

The basement sleeps eight and is made up of a large playroom with a ping pong table. A laundry room. A full guest bathroom with a shower/tub combo. A kids room with four bunk beds. A guest room with a queen size bed. As well as a theater room with a large 8 foot by 6 foot screen, two bean bags and a fold out couch with a foam mattress which sleeps two.

Situated near the end of North Shore road there is easy access to the lake (beach across the street), trails, Bellingham, and Mt Baker. The local pub and fine eatery is only a mile away so you can slip down there if you don't feel like cooking. Whether for a casual drink at the bar or a fine dining experience you can get it at the Fork.

We Hope you decide to come for a stay at our Northwest Modern home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I moved onto lake Whatcom when I was five years old and though I left for college and returned much later as a husband and father, I have a long standing connection with this area and this land. I built what we are calling, Northwest Modern, starting in 2010 as a place for my wife's mother to come and stay for long term visits. I have built many other homes as a contractor, but this is the first one that I designed with my own tastes and preferences in mind. I really like the result and I hope you will too.

Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
I want to be able to offer this home to couples at a reasonable rate so that they can enjoy this experience at not much more than the cost of a nice hotel room. However I also want to make the home available to larger groups at prices more consistent with the size and amenities of the overall space. I'm hoping I achieved that with my pricing structure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's a unique house, and it's essentially new. It was built to be enjoyed by just one or two people by shutting down the basement, or for many guests by opening up that level. Because the house will be used during the summer by my family I am looking to rent a large and luxurious lake house in the fall, winter, and spring. So I think if you want to, or need to be in this area during those times, this could be a great fit.
