Property description

This 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom storybook home in an enchanting setting will make your Seattle vacation spectacular summer or any time of year. A beautiful brick and shingle Cape inspired home in one of Lake Washington's most extraordinary locations. This incredible setting has panoramic views capturing sunrise to sunset with a peaceful native wetland park adjacent to the property. Bald eagles dive for fish just off the lawn, blue herons walk along the seawall and Canadian geese glide by on their way to the beach next door.

Built with meticulous attention to the 1930s architecture, each room will welcome you with large leaded glass windows, spacious views and delicious privacy from outside intrusions. The main floor has an elegant entry, a living room with fireplace and baby grand piano, a well-equipped kitchen, Viking stove and dining room perfect for entertaining. The main floor opens onto a private hot tub patio and yard with gardens. The upper floor hosts the master suite with beautifully appointed bathroom and comfortable sitting room. As well, there are three additional bedrooms and one additional full bath. The bottom floor has a large entertainment room with wide screen tv, a 5th bedroom with a queen-sized bed and private 3/4 bath, a private study with a fold out double sized couch/bed and private full bath, a spacious craft room for children to create and private 6 person hot tub just outside the door.

During the 2016 season, this property is rented with the two friendly cats and a fish. If you have sensitivities to cats, this location is not advised.
