Property description

High Ceilings and Large windows make this home a place where the weight of the world fades away.

There is one bedroom with a queen bed as well as two queens size sleeper sofas (with a gel mattress) in the great room. A great place for two to six for a fun weekend.

My 'Girly Industrial' house theme is expressed in the pink accents, hand painted black peonies on the heated grey concrete floors to the truss joist with car-decking for the ceiling creating a loft like space.

I put in 'old lady' steps to easily get into the water off the dock so more are able to enjoy the lake on a hot day.

My house is designed for accessibility no curb for the shower 36 inch wide doors and it is all on one level. I brought my friend who is in a wheel chair for a weekend and she was happy to be so independent. For further details please call.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am an interior designer based in Seattle since 1975. In 2009 I designed and had my house built fulfilling a life long dream of designing and building my own home. I tease my clients that I have had years of practice on them when they see my house and like it. I love my house and I enjoy sharing it. A few years back I did VRBO with my place in the city and it was such a wonderful experience meeting people I am looking forward to opening my home once again.

Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
I grew up on the lake ( I lived across Lake Samish Drive up on the hill from this house) where my family still lives. You will know it is their house when you see all the crazy sculptures in the yard my dad makes. They have lived at the lake since 1962. I always dreamed of building a custom house on this slip of land that is my families access to the lake. I have been sketching for decades. So what you see is result of budget hitting dreams and shaking down into a comfortable relaxing place to be.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I grew up using the dock, swimming, skiing, and enjoying the lake however the first time as an adult I sat still and looked up the lake I felt the serenity of the view wash over me and I knew I wanted to live here. So I have brought my precious things, my piano, art and Kitchenaid mixer (ha ha) to a space I can enjoy in anticipation of creating a place to retire. Until retirement I will share it with others and hope they can have a little piece of my dream for themselves.
