3800 square feet of luxury awaits you when you step through the doors of Blackfish Lookout, a custom professionally decorated home overlooking Puget Sound. No expense was spared in in the construction or decor of this modern open concept gem. From the stylish modern interior design featuring 10 foot ceilings and grasscloth accent walls, to the high end finishes and furnishings. Your eye will be immediately drawn to the 9 foot Live Edge slab dining table bathed in the light of a chrome and glass pendant chandelier, then to the sleek leather sofas perfectly positioned to take in the view as well as the ambience of the fireplace. you won't be able to believe it gets better than this. Then you see the views....
Best of all, LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! Blackfish Lookout sits 3 blocks above the Puget Sound and a 5 minute walk from the beach and boardwalk of charming Redondo where you can dine on gourmet food in the casual elegance of Salty's Redondo on the pier. Their weekend brunches and Happy Hour specials are to die for! There is even a charming aquarium open weekends where you can see and touch the local fish and crustaceans, and learn about the local sea life! Fish from the local pier, charter a boat, dive, you name it. And on special occasions watch the fireworks or lighted boat parades from our balcony. Drive 10 minutes to the Des Moines Marina where you have your choice of restaurants, including local favorite Anthony's. In the summer the Marina also hosts a top notch Farmer's Market where you can sample local produce, fresh meats, seafood and cheeses, or handcrafted items!
Just three blocks from the water, the home was designed with the views as the main attraction. They are everywhere. The main floor living and family rooms feature floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the beauty of the Sound. Grey Whales, porpoise, seals, sea lions, otters, even our famous Orcas frequent the local waters! You never know what you will be lucky enough to see.
Blackfish Lookout features four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. You will have all the luxuries you expect in a home of this quality, including large wall mounted flat screen "SMART TVs" where you can watch cable, Netflix, or choose from our collection of DVDs. The built in surround sound will complete the experience. Of course WiFi runs throughout. You can get away from it all, or stay connected. The choice is yours. The home also features beautiful modern artwork throughout, some from local artists.
The open concept kitchen is directly off the family room and is a chef's dream. It is the epitome of clean and modern, with dark wood cabinetry and white quartz counters. Make breakfast on the huge island with a stainless propane cooktop, all the while scanning the sound for whales Of course the kitchen is stocked with all you could possibly need to prepare those gourmet meals: dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, wineglasses etc. You name it, we have tried to think of it. Heck, we even have a selection of cookbooks from local Seattle Chefs! Pull up a seat at the island on the mid century inspired barstools, or sit at the nearby dining table, also designed with a similar modern aesthetic.
Across from the kitchen is the family room and TV viewing area. Relax on the large comfortable leather sofa... with large matching ottomans, it just invites you to put your feet up! There is also a classic mid century lounge chair for even more seating. And at the risk of repeating ourselves... there is once again the view. Sliding glass doors showcase views of the sound and invite you to step out to the balcony where you can relax in outdoor lounge chairs.
The other side of the main floor is the great room. Sit in one of the two sleek leather sofas facing each other in front of the fire. Of course these windows face the sound and the views as well. The rear of the great room features our stunning formal dining area. The 9 foot Live Edge table was custom made for Blackfish Lookout by Outside The Box Woodworking: local artisans in nearby Gig Harbor Washington. With comfortable seating for up to 10, the entire family can sit here.This masterpiece is topped by another, a stunning modern pendant chandelier. You really have to see to appreciate.
Walk upstairs and you won't believe the master bedroom. It is truly swoon-worthy! Featuring yet another fireplace, a balcony and seating area to take in those incredible views, you will feel like you are on top of the world. There is a large wall mounted flat screen, and a king size bed with a memory foam topper. Finished off with luxury linens, your dreams will certainly be sweet here. Then you walk in to the ensuite master bath. Wow. Just WOW. It features a huge walk in shower with multi-jet spray and a rainfall shower head. There is also a soaking tub, and a double sink vanity with quartz countertop.

Across the hall is our bunkroom. This room sleeps up to three with its twin over full beds. Even these beds are made up with designer duvets and ultra soft high thread count sheets!
But wait... There is more. Go down two flights to the bottom level of this large home where you will find yet another bedroom, a full bath, and another bonus/TV/Game room with water views.

This room also features a DVD/BluRay, games, everything you need to round out your evening entertainment. Because of its private location, the entire downstairs suite is perfect for a couple or small family that wants a little more seclusion, or peace and quiet from the rest of the house hold.
And we have not even mentioned the outdoor spaces yet! Blackish Lookout features a wrap around deck that leads to our private hot tub and patio. The entire front deck puts Puget Sound front and center. Imagine the long nights of the Pacific Northwest while you soak up the view with a glass of wine. The deck features not only a BBQ, but also a hard wired propane flat grill! Cook like a chef while you prepare all your favorite meals outside if your heart desires and the weather permits. There is a dining table for 4 on the upper deck, and 2 more cafe tables on the back patio. And of course the Hot Tub... And yep. You guessed it, even the hot tub was meticulously placed to have a view!!! Imagine yourself soaking there while the sun sets over the water. Need we say more???
