This newly remodeled/refinished home is a rarity. Situated on 1.25 acres providing the feeling of being in an island retreat while being the heart of Kirkland. Beautiful open spaces, huge walls of windows make this home very light inside and take advantage of the stunning Lake Washington views. It would be hard to run out of deck space too. Over 5000 sf. 5 Bedroom, 3.5 bath, lots of living space.

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs (including master) and 2 baths. Main floor, kitchen, kitchen dining area, living room area, dining room, and den. Downstairs, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, pool table room, and large family room.

The kitchen is quite spacious. Includes a 50' professional gas 5 burner Dacor cook top , double Dacor ovens, a Sub-zero 60' fridge, 'super quiet' Bosch dishwasher and all the amenities. The house has plenty of parking. It also has a high end gas grill on the deck.

The master bedroom, upstairs with amazing views of the lake, has a King size bed with en suite bathroom with separate shower, tub, and huge walk in closet. It also has it's own beautiful deck. The other 2 bedrooms upstairs have Queen size beds, with a full bath directly in the hall with a tub/shower. The 4th and 5th bedrooms downstairs have a queen and single twin bed respectively with a bathroom with shower right outside the doors.

Why Kate Weaver chose Kirkland

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.

The PERFECT stay!

  • 5 of 5

Each day began with coffee and watching the sun rise over Lake Washington, and evenings were spent on the expansive deck, entertaining family and friends. The home is tastefully done and filled with unique photography that clearly documents the life of an adventurer.

Every detail is attended to; additional (matching) wine glasses, formal dining table, buffet for hosting platters, gourmet kitchen with double ovens. Bathrooms for each bedroom of the house. Located a stones throw from a walking trail and the lake... I could LIVE here.
