About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to Lake Sammamish living! Escape to this 8 mile long scenic lake only 4 miles to Microsoft HQ and 10 miles to Seattle that feels like a far away summer home. Eagles soar overhead and salmon swim by your dock, as you relax at the beach firepit, after a full day of boating.

This gorgeous apartment is a fully furnished large one bedroom, bath, living room/kitchen on the first floor with a separate entrance. It is on the Lake Sammamish waterfront with views for miles down the lake to the snowcapped peaks of the cascade mountains.

It was fully renovated recently including all new kitchen and appliances, radiant heat tile floor, granite counters, maple cabinets, queen size bed, large oriental rug, 48” TV with DirectTV DVR, couch, desk, executive chair, printer, glass dining table, dishwasher, washer & dryer.

It's fully furnished, first class, with everything you need, plates, glasses, silverware, pots, towels, linens, napkins, premium kitchen appliances (coffee maker, microwave, margarita machine/blender, food processor), iron, hair dryer, clock radio, - if you need it, and we don’t have it, we will get it. All utilities including Internet and cable and maid service every 2 weeks are included. There is a covered patio, a deck, gas grill, and a patio lakeside, and parking.

We have a 120’ dock, with a fast 22’ Cobalt powerboat, 4 small sailboats, 2 stand-up paddleboards, 2 kayaks, and 2 windsurfers, as well as fishing gear, plus all the lifejackets, wakeboards, inflatable tubes etc. These are available for your use (once you are checked-out on knowing how to use them – and we can teach you). I'll need to ride along on the powerboat for insurance reasons.

Across the street (literally) is 80 acre Weowna Park with miles of old growth forest trails for hiking/jogging.

We live in the upper floors of the home, so check-in/check-out is easy and we are there if you need anything.

East Lake Hills, Bellevue, WA, USA
Nearest Beach
Weowna Beach

Car: Recommended

On the Waterfront - just steps from your Weowna beach on the middle of Lake Sammamish. Across the street is an 80 acre old growth forest with miles of trails and a waterfall. Looking out on this 8 mile lake, forested hillsides and snow-capped mountains makes you feel far away but we are only 4 miles to Microsoft HQ (with minimal stoplights on the lakeside Parkway), 15 minutes from Seattle on I-90 or 520, under 10 minutes to downtown Redmond and Issaquah, Boeing Field 20 minutes, Costco HQ 5 minutes. Snoqualmie ski resort and casino is just 40 minutes away. 2 miles from shopping and restaurants, 5 mile from Bellevue Square. 20 minutes from Pike Place market and the Space Needle.

Bike around the lake, or visit 640 Acre Marymore park at the top of the lake, or 512 acre Lake Sammamish State Park at the south end. You can bike to the Redhook brewery & restaurant with miles of bike trails, and even the Woodenville winery region - Google 'Woodinville Wineries' to see about a hundred in biking distance (12-15 miles). Borrow our bikes if you like.

But right at your dock is a Cobalt 200 Speedboat to explore the lake (with owner), a Lido 14 & 2 Laser Sailboats, Stand-up paddleboard, Windsurfing equipment, with free Sailing & wakeboarding lessons, Fishing gear and 2nd pole license, Tow-tube & Inflatable rafts, you won’t want to leave this new home.

Click the 'Satellite View' on the map below to see the gorgeous lake and forest park that surround us to right and left. Zoom in on the dock & pan around the lake.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm a consultant working at Microsoft, and since 2007 have rented to co-worker contractors on short term projects. Having lived out of hotels and corporate apartments, for 18 months before my family moved out, I know what a pain that is. By buying a house with an extra apartment which I rent out, I was able to swing a gorgeous home on the lake instead of the “regular house” that I could afford. We have been listing on VRBO/HomeAway for about 3 years and can provide past corporate renter references.

Why the Owner Chose East Lake Hills, Bellevue, WA, USA:
Living on the lake has been a dream, as I'm an avid sailor, boater, and learning to fish. Living in my 'vacation home' year-round makes it great to cut out on a sunny day, to go wakeboarding, without having to plan and pack up the family. I can work from my home office overlooking the lake, yet be 10 minutes from an unscheduled client meeting even in rush hour.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Living in Seattle, you learn the weather is unpredictable, most days Fall through Spring have some sun and some rain, so you need live on the water to get out quickly when the sun pops out for a few hours. We have the boats on power lifts so it's easy to be out on the water, 10 minutes after you say 'lets go'.
