Overview

About the property

Spacious light filled 1200 square feet set on a serene bay.

High Ceilings and Large windows make this home a place where the weight of the world fades away.

There is one bedroom with a queen bed as well as two queens size sleeper sofas (with a gel mattress) in the great room. A great place for two to six for a fun weekend.

My 'Girly Industrial' house theme is expressed in the pink accents, hand painted black peonies on the heated grey concrete floors to the truss joist with car-decking for the ceiling creating a loft like space.

I put in 'old lady' steps to easily get into the water off the dock so more are able to enjoy the lake on a hot day.

My house is designed for accessibility no curb for the shower 36 inch wide doors and it is all on one level. I brought my friend who is in a wheel chair for a weekend and she was happy to be so independent. For further details please call.

I am not always at a computer ( I am somewhat of a luddite) so my response time is not instant. I am at my computer on Mondays. Please feel free to call if time is of the essence. 206 371 6878. that is the best way to reach me.

About Jennifer Randall

I am an interior designer based in Seattle since 1975.

In 2009 I designed and had my house built fulfilling a life long dream of designing and building my own home. I tease my clients that I have had years of practice on them when they see my house and like it.

I love my house and I enjoy sharing it. A few years back I did VRBO with my place in the city and it was such a wonderful experience meeting people I am looking forward to opening my home once again.

Jennifer Randall purchased this house in 2009

Why Jennifer Randall chose Northwest & Islands

I grew up on the lake ( I lived across Lake Samish Drive up on the hill from this house) where my family still lives. You will know it is their house when you see all the crazy sculptures in the yard my dad makes. They have lived at the lake since 1962.

I always dreamed of building a custom house on this slip of land that is my families access to the lake. I have been sketching for decades. So what you see is result of budget hitting dreams and shaking down into a comfortable relaxing place to be.

What makes this house unique

I grew up using the dock, swimming, skiing, and enjoying the lake however the first time as an adult I sat still and looked up the lake I felt the serenity of the view wash over me and I knew I wanted to live here.

So I have brought my precious things, my piano, art and Kitchenaid mixer (ha ha) to a space I can enjoy in anticipation of creating a place to retire. Until retirement I will share it with others and hope they can have a little piece of my dream for themselves.

Beautiful space, great location.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our trip to Bellingham. It's a beautiful space with a gorgeous view. The kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were comfortable, and it was nice having a washer & dryer. It's a short drive into Bellingham and an easy jumping off location to Seattle, Vancouver, and Mt. Baker. We would love to come back.

This was a very comfortable and creative space!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here. We loved opening up the garage door and letting the breeze and the view in. It has everything you need to have a restful vacation. It is also close enough to Fairhaven and Belllingham to have access to great restaurants and shops. We will go again!

Review of Modern Dream Home on Lake Samish

  • 5 of 5

The owner (Jennifer) was wonderful to us. The house is an amazing blend of art and modern/industrial furnishings. It even has a garage door that opens to the outside deck. The dock was great to walk out on, and you can take a swim at the end of it, plus there is a swim ladder to get in the water. Couldn't have asked for a nicer house while staying on Lake Samish.
