Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Central Houghton, Kirkland, WA, USA:
We bought this property for it's truly unique setting. We could have bought a brand new house down the street for the same price on a lot barely bigger than the house with a view of the lake but the a neighbors roof right in front of you. We feel like we can actually escape when we are here. We did a major remodel in 2012 other than upgrading cosmetically the main achievement of opening up the main floor and taking better advantage of the view by tearing off the West facing side of the house and rebuilding it with a higher roof line, huge windows, and adding a beautiful deck off the master bedroom. Windows were added in other parts of the house. Overall, a major facelift.
