Year Purchased: 2013

About: Community-minded owner is too busy to enjoy this private residence 365 days a year and is excited to share the experience with responsible others on a limited basis. This home provides instant relief from the stresses of the world as you reconnect with the magic of nature. I hope you enjoy the property as much as I do!

Why Renton, WA, USA:
This is one of the most beautiful settings in the State, with 800 feet of private waterfront and only 35 minutes from Seattle, 25 minutes from Bellevue and Tacoma. The view is unobstructed meadow and lakefront framed by the protected forest. New lodge-like construction residence with room for large family gatherings and special celebrations with friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The lake water is very clean for swimming, the wide view is all natural as the west side of the lake has been protected from development. Watch deer graze in the quiet setting. Large yard for picnics, tents, volleyball or music. Sit and watch the eagles hunt and roost in large trees. West facing property with warm days and beautiful sunsets! Enjoy fire pit or indoor gas fireplace with friends and family. Big Jacuzzi with view of lake in master bathroom. Upstairs outdoor balcony provides a unique view without wildlife noticing you!
