The incredible views from this lovely custom built, waterfront home will take your breath away. The house offers a secluded setting with a green belt on one side and a house set back from view on the other. No need for window coverings to block the view--it is totally private. We provide sleep masks for those who need a dark room to sleep. We enjoy being awakened by a gorgeous sunrise. Sit in the solarium and watch the eagles fly right overhead or fish in the water below you.
Enjoy unobstructed views of Puget Sound, the Cascade mountains and Mt. Baker from virtually every room in the house. Watch the ever changing activity of cruise ships, sailboats, tankers or a nuclear submarine, from the large deck or our cozy solarium. The professionally landscaped yard is designed for privacy and easy maintenance and features a tranquil pond and natural woodland setting.There is a trail behind the house leading down, about 150 feet to the beach. Enjoy a walk exploring over a mile of beach, dig for clams or just sit on a log and relax. Watch the deer and raccoons drink from the pond and wander through the yard any given day.
The fully equipped kitchen has a 5 burner Decor gas cooktop, double ovens and Subzero refrigerator, beautiful granite slab countertops, and a view that makes cooking a real pleasure. Or you can pull up a bar stool to the eating counter and grab a quick snack. Fine dining is minutes away if you aren't in the mood for cooking.
The living room has a stone wall with a gas fireplace. Snuggle up on the comfy sofas in front of the fireplace and enjoy great conversation, a good book or a glass of wine. Or, simply admire the beauty of the view.
The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet, a king sized bed and 12' sliding glass doors that open to the deck. Lie in bed and enjoy the fireplace in the evening and see the cruise ships heading back to port and watch the sun rise over the Cascade Mts. Master bath has double sink with granite slab vanity, large spa like shower with double shower heads, and like almost everywhere in this home, incredible water and mt. view!
Bedroom 2 has queen sized bed and a garden view.
Bedroom 3 is very large with queen bed (and available space for our queen, double high air bed available for those groups looking for a couple more sleeping spots). Glass doors open to the deck. Relax with a cup of coffee at the bistro table with four chairs and view the marvelous water and mountain views or enjoy the fireplace for added .enjoyment .
Bedroom 4 is in our loft bonus room along with our office. It has a queen bed as well as an oversize twin convertible sofa bed. Spectacular views from the office.
The house is beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated to make your stay feel extra special and comfortable.
The soft breezes from the water below make grilling and dining, on the table for six comfortable, even on a hot day, a real treat.
Several comfortable lounge chairs are also provided. Try to spot the seals on the rocks below with the telescopes and binoculars provided or just marvel at the incredible view. There is another patio with two lounge chairs at the south end of the yard. Our favorite place for ending the day, sipping the drink and watching the sunset light up the Cascade mountains and Puget Sound.
