The SpaceLong and private gravel driveway amidst a forested tunnel of trees. And lots of lawn space for playing. This is one of the quietest places in the Seattle metro area, great for artists, writers, musicians, or professionals who want some quietude after a workday in the bustling city. The house is built in the 1980's with very modern amenities and purposely has a classic, retro look to resemble a french country cottage, albeit with modern, clean polish inside. It has been a non-smoking, no pet, "no-shoes inside" home.
The Downstairs has a beautiful luxury kitchen with all Viking appliances, including 2 ovens, extensive granite counter tops and new updated cabinets, looks onto lounge area that has large windows and a wood burning fireplace. Dining room with french doors that access a very large wrap-around deck and beautiful views of the creek, woods and sky.
Living room has a cozy gas fireplace, and ceiling projector perfect for screening movies, TV or internet. Most of the floorspace is hardwood floors. Powder room, laundry/supplies room, and a studio office room with recently carpeted floor, office supplies and ethernet connections. For the preference of true relaxation seekers, wi-fi is available per request only, and cable is not enabled in this house.
Upstairs is a large master bedroom. Master bath includes marble floor and walls surrounding an extra large jacuzzi tub, and walk-in closet. Also upstairs are "Jack and Jill" bedrooms connecting to a large, sunny bathroom. Rooms are carpeted with nice, light beige carpet installed in fall of 2011.
Basement is spacious and semi-complete, with lighting and heating, and window facing a creek. Perfect for use as a playroom, work shop space, rehearsal room or studio. Also has two small rooms for storage or other. There is a full playground set in the yard, newly installed in summer of 2013.
Gardens, fruit trees and abundant blueberry bushes! Plenty of space for planting your own organic vegetables and herbs if you plan to stay a while, as the grounds have been pesticide-free for 3+ years. Lower garden has a fire pit and direct access to a harmonious stream (part of the property). Garden tools available and plenty of firewood included under a large outdoor shed. The property is part of an important Barred Owl habitat, and they are soothingly heard most evenings, right outside. Guest AccessThe house is partially furnished including a dining room set for up to 6, two couches, an office desk, and plenty of cabinets and dresser space. A King bed in the master, and queen and twin beds in the other bedrooms, all high quality and well kept. Besides the basic kitchen appliances and dishes, there are several nice accessories such as toaster, BlendTec blender, and dish washer. No microwave.
The office has a wooden desk, multi-function printer, a small library of interesting books, and games.
Outside, please help yourself to the lovely adirondack chairs and a hammock under nice weather. Interaction with GuestsI will be available from time to time to either help or mingle if that is expected from guests, or will be remote if that is preferred. For support, I have a few helpful contacts readily available in the area. The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is small, quaint, and full of nature lovers. People really respect the environment and quietude, so you don't really have anyone running leafblowers around here. Most neighbors keep to themselves, yet are friendly and helpful when encountered.
The plentiful neighbors are wild, ...deer, coyotes, foxes are common, and there is the seldom black bear or lynx sighting, right from the living room. Getting AroundBus transit connecting to Bellevue, Seattle, and really anywhere is 1 mile away. An amazing food co-op, nail spa, fitness center, dry cleaning service and Starbucks are a minute away. 4 miles down the road is a big library, an outdoor mall, Whole Foods, Target, Home Depot... fortunately or not. Bicycle trails are all around, and what's really big around here is horseback riding, with several trails starting just a stone's throw from the backyard. Woodinville's hot air balloon routes fly right over the house in the summer and fall. Other Things to NoteThe house is available for weekly rent, but most preferably monthly.
There is no sink compressor, therefore food scraps need to be collected and placed into the trash.
One section of the basement is utilized for owner's storage.
