                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: Our family bought this property in 1995. It was the second home built in the area and was a 2 bedroom rambler. After our third child was born, we needed a larger home. The old home was demolished. We built the home. It is designed to have a timeless design so it would hopefully stay on the property for hundreds of years. It is a Cape Cod design that is as beautiful in from the back view as it is from the front. We raised our four children in this home. It was designed so our home would be the gathering place for their friends and it served its purpose by having all of their friends often, holding events like school prom group photos and dinners, beach parties, scout swimming for merit badges, and hosting dinner parties , weddings or non-profit events. On the 4th of July we have had hundreds of people in the back yard watching the fireworks (The fireworks are set off from a barge just off our beach front, so you must reserve the home for the 4th of July week because you cannot get any closer to a professional firework show). Over the years our home has been a place we have regularly enjoyed opening our doors to provide a room or bed for someone who needed a place to stay until they got on their feet again. Now that our children are raised the home is ready for you to use and enjoy. It is kept very clean and pristine so you can just relax and enjoy the beauty inside and outside of the home. We are local natives and can answer your questions before your arrive about activities , shopping or things you might need while on your amazing vacation.

                      Why the Owner Chose Issaquah:
                      This home will someday be on a registry of historic homes. It was built solid with a timeless, elegant design to last for hundreds of years. Our goal to pass this home down to our children and grandchildren who will continue to have it open and available for vacation rental. It will be a place you can come to year after year as your vacation home, and share with your family and friends now and over future generations to come. Come leave your legacy and be among the first generation of guests. Your name and story can be in our guest book so when movies or books are written about the history of our home, you will be a part of it.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Unobstructed Views 180 degree views. 100 feet of sandy beach. Private dock with boat lift to park a boat and wave runner. Home is most luxurious on the lake, elegant, yet relaxed (keep your shoes on if you want). Lots of room for more than one family or for a family reunion. If you want to play on the water we have toys, skis, canoes, kayaks, row boats, fishing gear on site. If you want to just relax and read a book there are many quite private areas inside or outside all with views. Very romantic setting for a couple to have a first or second honeymoon. Location, location, location Quick asses to freeway to easily get to anything you want to do within a 10-20 minute drive. Very close to downtown Seattle or Bellevue for city fun, shopping, restaurants, sailing, fishing, ferry boat rides, aquarium, Seahawks football, Mariners baseball, Sounders Soccer, Seattle Symphony or Opera, Theaters, Space Needle. Yet the home is in a quite, private area. First time or seasoned paragliding within 10 minutes. Many Golf courses within 10 minutes. Head to the mountain pass (10-15 minutes) for fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, river rafting and snow skiing.
