About the Property
3 Bed, 5 Bath + Guest Suite Lakefront Home (Sleeps 5-8)
When you walk thru the front door, you are greeted by an amazing lake view and a warm contemporary home with walls of windows and beautiful woodwork. There is room for the whole extended family or friends to spread out on three floors of finely decorated living space.
The home has a reverse, open floor plan with a wide, beautifully crafted staircase leading down to a huge great room featuring a chef's kitchen, dining area, and living room with plenty of cozy seating, a wide flat screen TV, and a gas fireplace. The kitchen has two ovens, a 5 burner Miele gas stove, two sinks, comfy leather bar stool seating for five at a large bar, and an adjacent dining table that seats six. The kitchen is stocked with all the small appliances, pots and pans, and utensils you'll need to whip up a gourmet meal. We also supply ample towels, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, trash bags, food storage bags, etc etc to make your stay more convenient.
The great room is surrounded by oversized glass sliders that open to the patio, manicured garden, lake, and private dock creating a true indoor/outdoor living experience. There are life jackets, paddle boards, a two person kayak, and private beach access available to enhance the lake fun. We have many toys, games, books, bikes, scooters, and movies for more family fun in and out of the house.
Also on the walkout level is a powder room, second laundry, Butler's pantry, office with a twin sofa sleeper and door creating a private sleeping space for a single, and a private wing with a gorgeous family room/guest suite with the most awesome family movie night couch ever. The family room/guest suite has an en suite bathroom and sauna. The lake view hot tub is right outside. A convertible queen bed can be set up in this room upon request.
The home has three large bedrooms. The master bedroom with CA King bed, lake view balcony, sitting room, fireplace, and flat screen TV is located on the entry level. It has a giant bathroom with a deep, free standing tub, a lake view shower, a large balcony, two sinks, and a separate toilet room. There is a futon sofa in the sitting room of the master that can be converted to a full bed.
Rounding out the entry floor is a well appointed laundry room and a cozy second bedroom with a full bed and an adjacent full bathroom.
The third bedroom is by itself on the top floor with a serene bathroom with soaking tub across the stairway landing. This bedroom has a full size day bed with a twin trundle, a flat screen TV, and a lake view balcony. On the oversized semi-private stair landing is a twin daybed for an additional guest.
We are open to renting to responsible, mature guests who will treat our home with care and respect. We will rent to a group of 10 people max and do not permit parties or large gatherings or smoking of any kind in or around the home. Pets may be approved to join you on a case by case basis. Please ask permission before bringing your pet.
Unlike most vacation rentals, this is our primary home that we make available to guests when we are out of town. As such, it allows for us to provide many amenities not found in other vacation rentals. But the small downside that we'd like to point out is that there may not be much storage space for unpacking suitcases and for large amounts of freezer items. There will be room in closets and hangers provided for your hanging items, and we provide suitcase stands for each bedroom. We also will have the majority of the refrigerator available and some freezer space. We always have the house professionally cleaned and all linens and towels freshly washed after our departure and before guests arrive. We keep a minimalist, tidy home, so it will look as neat and organized as in the pictures.
*** Please Note - all reviews prior to July 2015 refer to our former lakefront home in the Leschi neighborhood of Seattle. If our past guests loved that house, you will be blown away by this custom designed and built, West facing lakefront retreat. Still centrally located to all the Seattle area has to offer and still well managed by Shelley and Brian who love being able to share our home with guests from around the world while we enjoy our own travels.

Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: We are a family with two children ages 12 and 10. We love to ski, mountain bike, hike, and surf. Our main passion is traveling whenever we can.
Why the Owner Chose Central District, Seattle, WA, USA:
We chose to purchase this property because it's in a wonderful, quiet lakefront neighborhood in Bellevue with excellent restaurants, parks, hiking, biking, and beaches nearby. We also like the freeway access, being close to downtown Seattle, Bellevue, and the airport.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love swimming off our dock and at the local beaches, waterskiing on Lake Washington, and biking the trail that encircles the lake. Our house is centrally located for endless adventures in the Puget Sound region.
