Perfect for large groups/multiple families with 3 full master suites and 2 full kitchens!
This house offers the best of both worlds: literally minutes from charming Olde Town Issaquah, the freeway and the conveniences of urban life, yet tucked against a mountainside and surrounded by a canopy of old growth forest trees and trails.
It's also close to Bellevue, Seattle and Snoqualmie Pass, shopping, live theater and restaurants. Well stocked kitchen, roomy living rooms! The lower level is ADA accessible throughout.
***An update to the pictures includes a larger table upstairs and a second flat screen in the living room downstairs.
This 3,300 sq ft house is unique with 3 custom built master suits, all including neo-angled tubs with waterfall faucets. Each space was artistically created and you might have a hard time choosing between them!
You'll find special pieces throughout, including up-cycled remodels, high-end kitchen updates and antique built-ins from local lakefront mansions.
From the floor plan to the lighting and decor, we hope you find this space cozy and inviting.
Booked as the whole house, you'll have 2 full kitchens, 2 flat screen TVs, 2 living rooms for gathering and relaxing, and 2 washer/dryer sets. Multiple master suites means everyone can relax in their own private space. This is ideal for large groups or families!
Enjoy cooking in our updated kitchen upstairs. Having the appliances (two ovens upstairs and one down), knives, serving bowls, and some spices in the pantry will make your stay easy and comfortable.
House in the Woods has in-floor geothermal radiant heating and cooling system and distilled water straight from the pigots at the kitchen sinks and several bathroom sinks.
Off the upstairs kitchen is a large deck with a grill and bench seating for summer guests.
In the lower level, you'll find up-cycled finishes, exposed beams, and interior brick accent walls.
The upstairs master has a king bed and walk in closet that leads to the master bath. In addition to queen/double beds, the downstairs masters have charming twin bed nooks and soothing dimmable lights throughout. The other lower level room is a "den" with double bed (no attached bath or closet). It has glass French doors on two walls with stained glass accents, and thermal room-darkening curtains for privacy.
The LOWER unit is ADA accessible:
- paved parking is level with front door
- wide hallways and doors
- roll-in shower
- seats in showers
The home is nestled in the trees right along Hwy 900, a high traffic road between Issaquah and Renton. Expect to hear cars and trucks pass by day and night from inside, but also enjoy the sights and sounds of mother nature all around you. See photos for proximity to the street.
Being on Hwy 900 means you won't spend extra time driving through neighborhoods or city streets to get to your destination. From the house, zip right onto this scenic road and hit the freeway, town or trailheads within minutes. Note that commute hours in the morning and late afternoon create heavy traffic on this road, I-90, and main roads in Issaquah, so plan accordingly.
Park your boat in the open space next to the house!
Lake Samammish - 5 minutes (right in Issaquah)
Lake Washington - 15 minutes (boat to Seattle's Lake Union and even the Ballard Locks)
Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy miles of cycling, running, fishing, downhill biking, destination hiking and even paragliding just down the road. There are also two ski resorts with winter and summer activities less than an hour away. Downtown Issaquah has a charming shopping area called Gilman Village as well as restaurants and local shops along Front Street.
House in the Woods was remodeled to be booked as one large house, OR as two separate and private units on each level. We are also listed on Airbnb. Fastest way to find them is an Internet search for:
"House in the Woods (upper unit) Issaquah"
"House in the Woods (lower unit) Issaquah"
If you're sensitive to road noise, note that the upper unit's wall-to-wall windows and open floor plan do make it easier to hear the cars/trucks. Although you still hear traffic in the lower unit, it is quieter.
Contact me if you'd like to add more people than is allowed.
