Located in Richmond Beach, this house is a part of a 150 year old waterfront community eight miles north of downtown Seattle boasting beach shacks and mansions. It's safe and ideal for the family. With the downtown Seattle area just a 20 minute drive away and the quaint seaside town of Edmonds is just 5 minutes away this is a prime location to retreat or explore.
This recently remodeled 1935 house was renovated to accommodate an active, imaginative and ever growing family. Their playfulness and attention to detail makes it as much a sanctuary as it is an inspiration, leaving a lasting impression on everyone who stays there. Watch the sunset over the Olympic Mountain Range, comb the beach for shells, relax in the hot tub over looking the water and the Burlington Northern Railway or cozy up by the fire after a day of exploring the city.
Several entertainment options including a 65' screen T.V. backed by an Academy sponsored DVD collection of the best movies ever made are available for your enjoyment. A large stone shower/bath set in a spacious master bath complements the master bedroom with a fireplace. Two full work stations are available with million dollar views accompanied by a cozy reading nook to take in some peace and quiet. Climb the ladder into the extensive library, and find a small bedroom with two single beds perfect for imaginative kids and adults alike. There is one more single bedroom upstairs that completes the upper floor.
On the main floor you will find an impressive open room with tables to seat 20 people, beautiful long wood floors, a stunning stone fire place, grand piano and luxurious bench seating to compliment every inch of big window views. Attached to the main room is a large kitchen with counter tops made from a reclaimed sailboat, a viking oven and gas burners, a large fridge big enough for any family and almost everything you would need to prepare and serve food no matter what the occasion. Also on the main floor you will find three bathrooms (one with a claw foot bathtub), a laundry room, another bedroom with a queen and bunk single bed and every child's dream playroom equipped with books and toys galore (and Queen pull out bed).
If that isn't enough to wet your vacation rental appetite, you'll find a Sundance style independent apartment lit up by ground level windows facing the ocean. With a kitchen, gas fireplace, queen bed and bathroom as well as a private entrance this addition gives privacy to multiple family rentals (additional fees apply, seasonally available). And last but definitely not last is a quaint guest house located outside of the main floor of the house. It is furnished with a futon bed, bathroom, shower, and kitchenette and makes for a great get away for teens or single adult (the apartment and guest house available only by request or if number of guests requires - additional cleaning fee may apply).
Whether you're having a small family gathering, business retreat, west coast getaway, or reuniting with friends, this house is dynamic enough to make anyone feel like they're at home.

About the owner: I am a film maker who after spending the majority of my career making major motion pictures have founded The School Of Life Project, a film initiative to increase the social and emotional development of youth all over the world. My wife is a successful clothing designer who is equally involved in the film project as she is in her own career. Julie and I are parents to 4 strange and wonderful children. Our eldest son Max and his wife, along with our daughter Madee are all pursuing careers within the family businesses. Oliver and Leah who are both twelve, keep us young and constantly learning. Family is the most important thing to us, and we hope that is evident in the structure and the feel of our home.
Why the Owner Chose Richmond Beach, Shoreline, WA, USA:
This property screamed 'life long journey' when I first saw it. I dreamed of kids climbing that beautiful maple tree in the back, swinging on the rope swing, collecting shells on the beach, and traipsing sand over every inch of the house. I imagined being able to host our growing family for holidays, gathering friends for celebrations and never getting tired of watching the sunset after a long days work... My dreams all came true.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is nothing about this property that wasn't thought through. From its larger than life windows to let in every inch of sunrise and sunset, to the secret bedroom in the lofted library or intricate design features in every room, each portion of this house has a reason and a story behind it.
