WE REMODELED AGAIN, A REAL MAKE-OVER AND IT IS AMAZING…
This unique retreat rests serenely on Lake Sawyer, where the grass goes right to the water's edge and is a sanctuary for your senses, with spectacular lake and Mt Rainier views, all behind a private gate. It is a fantastic place for you and your family and friends to play and recharge, so much that you will not want to go home. You will be right on the water, the lawn flows right down to the water, where water toys are accessible to the lake. This lakeside retreat with awesome views is a perfect place to get away for a relaxing stay - this waterfront oasis is just over two thousand square feet of fun and relaxation, with FOUR bedrooms with FIVE BEDS (PLUS TWINS) and two main baths and a half bath upstairs. The lake access area features a spacious deck to soak up the sun, take a dip in the lake, or catch fish off shore (the lake gets a summer stock of trout and a famous bass hole is right in front of the house) with a fire pit by the water.
Enjoy peace and quiet, tranquility in this beautiful lake front community, with motor boating, water-skiing, canoeing, Kayaking, or just floating in the water. Hiking trails, parks, mountain bike trails, and golfing are all nearby. The public boat launch is just a street over and within walking distance. So drop your boat and bring the trailer back to the house no need to pay for parking go play Even if you don’t play on the water it is so relaxing to just to sit and enjoy the view, whether it is raining, sunny or snowing it is unbelievably beautiful
This unique property is close to conveniences, like Costco and Walmart, yet private and secluded from the noise and congestion of the city. We are in the town of Black Diamond, which is adjacent to the City of Covington and due east for SeaTac International Airport, nestled in the foothills of the nearby Cascade Mountains.
The property has an open floor plan with access to the party deck with only a few steps to the water. As the deck is covered rain or shine it is the perfect place to read a book, watch the fishermen or the wild geese or grab a canoe or kayak or paddle boat and go fishing or play on the water. The wildlife comes right up to the deck, the kids love to feed the ducks, but when that becomes too much, just put up the plastic fence and they stay out of the yard. They are not trained, but it just seems to work.
We have water toys for you to use as long as you agree and understand that we require the use of our many life jackets as safety is most important.
MAJOR REMODEL: WOW AND IT IS AWESOME….We tore out the carpet on the main floor and installed taupe Pergo – we demolished the cabinets and counter and installed new white shaker style cabinets with exquisite – white quartz counter tops with an overhang bar. We installed new trim, raised baseboards and crown molding and installed new stair railing with iron pickets. We change a small tub shower combo in the main floor full bath into a walk-in shower with stone work and glass doors. Many other changes were made as well but no need to brag, and we gave away the sofa and love seat and put in a new sectional.
The MAIN level features a spacious great room, with a stone-faced gas fireplace with a 55' wall-mounted flat screen TV with Xfinity Comcast cable complemented with comfortable sectional and bar seats and large dining area that seats 10 with large picture windows. The glass doors open to the lake and provide access. The house is perfect for entertaining and allows you to cook to your heart’s delight in the convenient kitchen or on the deck BBQ and enjoy dinner lakeside on the deck.
The UPPER level features TWO private QUEEN BEDROOMS, BOTH w/ lake view – a getaway unto itself, one with a private deck. The loft features a foosball table and air hockey, as well as sleeping space, and a half Bathroom.
