About the Property

A Studio Guest House With Spa Amenities Located in a Park Like Setting

The Kirkland Guest House is a luxury studio home complete with hot tub, sauna, full size kitchen, gas fireplace, luxury bedding and more.

The mid-century modern guest house suite has been updated to include a built in luxury bed, a new deck with two person hot tub, and a full laundry room.

The guest house also features a full size living room with gas fireplace, a complete kitchen with a full size refrigerator, microwave, sink, gas Aga Cooker stove as well as a large cedar sauna, bathroom and shower room.

The guest house has its own secure private gated entrance and parking space.

There are several steps down into the kitchen and living room area that people with mobility issues may wish to consider.

The guest house is located on 4 acres that borders Big Finn Hill park, a 220 acres county park with two entrances as well as above OO Denny Park (hike down a trail to Denny Park or drive around to it) which is on Lake Washington. The parks connect through the woods to St Edwards State Park.

The property is located within easy driving distance of large local employers such as Evergreen Hospital, Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Boeing and is in close proximity to Bellevue, Redmond, Woodinville, Bothell, Kenmore & Seattle. It is also 5 minutes away from Bastyr University and Inglewood Golf Course.

The Kirkland Guest House was built in 1974 by the Williams Family as a 'pool house' next to their own private home. It was designed by contemporary architect Robert Ross to include high ceilings, clear cedar wood walls, peeled poles, a full size kitchen and outdoor terrace.

The 'pool house' connects to the main house and is owned by the eldest Williams son and current owner Brad Williams. As a master carpenter Brad has fully renovated the guest house to be an independent guest suite, styled with a mid-century modern feel.
