300 foot Ocean Waterfront, 3500 sq ft home with almost 4000 sq ft Deck area and pool. Luxury inside and out. Complete Privacy, with trails through ancient forest and along pristine stream on the property.
Minutes by Ferry from Downtown Edmonds and Seattle. The best of Northwest living. Eagles above you, Orcas, otters and seals in front of you. The vista stretches from the lights of Kingston, past Mt Baker and Whidbey Island, through the active shipping lanes of Puget Sound, to the North Cascade Mountains and Edmonds. The lights at night will enchant you, the forest's sounds will calm you, and the ocean's rhythms will mesmerize you. Amazing views from every room! Active water scene and surprisingly quiet...
Professionally decorated Northwest contemporary living. As new owners, we have made numerous upgrades, but have kept the luxury and charm intact. Custom plank oak floors, warm cedar walls, dark wood beams in the open floor plan. High end kitchen appliances, maple cabinets and copious lighting. Kitchen, den and dining blend together in the open concept, with the massive outdoor deck and pool through the walls of glass. Inside and outside flow together through walls of windows and doors and deck and garden spaces. Down the hall is the comfortable living room with striking views and lots of sitting spaces. The East wing includes the 5 bedrooms. First is the Master Bedroom with a King bed and Master bath with custom cabinetry and stone shower and counter. The Master Bedroom has it's own spectacular view and deck/garden access. A second bedroom is accesses through the Master with a queen bed and fireplace. Or you can use this as a sitting room for reading. Upstairs in the East wing are 2 bedrooms, one with a king and a twin, the other a queen bed and twin, along with 2 bathrooms. There is even a bunk bed room with access through the master to combine privacy with a chance to keep your eye on the children.
This almost 4 acre property with 300 feet of waterfront combines privacy, luxury, an ancient forest, crystal clear stream, your own privately owned tidelands with clams and crabs, and salmon waters at high tide. The mature landscaping blends with the forest inviting you to stroll quietly through the grounds, undisturbed by the outside world.
The whole family can enjoy the large, in ground pool, which is surrounded by cedar decks, allowing for private sunbathing and refreshing swimming.
Eagles nest in the tree tops, myriad song birds frequent the mature rhododendrons, azaleas, and dogwoods. Guests have been able to see Orcas and otters and seals from the deck.
WIFI, Direct TV, Wii, and hundreds of DVDs and vcrs. Lots of books to relax with.
Under new ownership, the property has been significantly improved. Although we don't have our own reviews yet, previous guests have said:
' The pictures on the website are fantastic, but we were even more blown away in person. Everything was so beautiful and comfortable. The view of the water is spectacular from nearly every room in the house. The lights of Kingston are gorgeous at night.' (April 2013)
'It's hard to explain how exceptional this property is. You really have total privacy and just spectacular views. If you're interested in both luxury and the ultimate in Pacific Northwest scenery, this property is a great choice'.
'Wow, this place is amazing! This is one of the nicest pieces of Puget Sound Waterfront I have ever laid eyes on. Book this place and experience a stunning waterfront estate, privacy, comfortable furnishings and a beautiful home.'
'It's active waterfront (sailboats, cruise ships, ferries) yet calm and peaceful at the same time. Our adult children enjoyed walking on the beach during low tides.'
We are outdoor people with a deep appreciation for the balance of nature
Tom Temple purchased this estate in 2014
We fell in love with this special property the first time that we saw it.
We love the privacy, our own beach access without stairs and expansive tidelands at low tide, the mature gardens that are constantly in bloom, and the trails that allow us to wander easily through the huge old trees. The inside of the home combines comfort and luxury, with great common areas, and private views from almost every room
This house was great - exactly as advertised. The owner, Tom, was great, too. I've dealt with a lot of VRBO owners over the years that were flaky and hard to get a hold of. Or owners that have ridiculous house rules that make it feel like you're staying at your in-laws. That is NOT Tom. Tom emailed back or called back within hours every single time. He was great to work with. You really felt like this was your own place.
The house was fantastic. Everything we needed was there and in working order. Everything was nice and clean, too. The views were spectacular from just about every room. The pool and big deck gave us plenty of outdoor space for everyone. The beds are comfortable. There's tons of parking. The property is beautifully landscaped and has great trails for taking walks. Even though there are neighbors, you feel like you're in your own little world. You don't see or hear anyone. There's enough space that you can have a large group all together or break off and have little moments of privacy. We even saw some river otters out on beach.
We would definitely come back to this place.
What a lovely property in a beautiful area of the world! We highly recommend this rental property - lots of room for all of us (10 people). We enjoyed walking along the coast at low tide, picking and eating the figs and blackberries. Also fun to have the pool for the kids, as well as relaxing for the adults. The owners were very helpful and provided a lot of information before we arrived. With family in the area, we will definitely rent this home again. Thank you for the opportunity to rent your lovely home!
Kingston is a hidden gem and Tom's house is amazing. There is so much beauty there you never have to leave. You could spend the whole vacation on the pool deck. The house is big and comfortable. It fit our 2 families with grown children (10 people in all) It has a great kitchen with everything you need and Tom is a great host. His house is one of the most beautiful places I have every stayed. Fabulous trip.
Had a reunion with about 15 people in this location and found it to be a great setting although it wasn't large enough to house all of us - we needed 7 bedrooms. The layout is a bit funky but the house is spacious, clean and well-appointed. The large great room was a perfect gathering place, the deck is huge and nicely set up, and the view is about as good as you can find anywhere. Spectacular is not hyperbole or hype, it is a pure statement of fact. All in all, I would highly recommend it. The owner was also a pleasure to work with.
Gorgeous home right on the ocean with terrific views of the shipping channel. The kids loved exploring on the beach, collecting shells, walking along the trails (where the owners have placed cute gnomes and fairies to find), watching herons fish, floated around in the pool, had terrific meals in the well stocked kitchen, enjoyed coffee on the expansive deck and had plenty of room for all of the couples and families to stay and enjoy time! Would go again!
We've been renting this house now for several years. It's an amazing setting, an awesome house, a perfect view and a pool that will keep the kids entertained for hours on end.
