1. Incredible setting surrounded by natural beauty. 

Situated on 7.35 acres (which includes 2 parcels) and showing off 319 feet of waterfront footage, this rare property presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This home features multiple decks—both covered and uncovered and made from quality Brazilian IPE hardwood—so you can take in the views while listening to the tranquil sounds of nature out in the fresh air. There’s even a hot tub so you can unwind in the secluded, picturesque setting. Plus, outside you’ll also find a spacious storage shed that’s the ideal spot for storing garden tools, outdoor toys, and outdoor furniture.

2. Inspired by mid-century design. 

Mid-century character awaits at every turn in this sprawling home, and awe-worthy spaces are just waiting to be discovered. Entertain in the generous living room where you’ll find large picture windows, a fireplace with a mid-century vibe, and beautiful wood elements. On the other side of the fireplace, a light-filled dining area is ready for entertaining. Venture into the kitchen where you’ll find a door with classic mid-century design, while wood elements rest alongside sleek appliances. This is only the beginning—to fully appreciate the attention to detail in curating this home, you’ll want to take a tour in person! 

3. Rejuvenating natural light throughout. 

The huge windows throughout this home is one of this retreat’s defining features. Walls of windows in the living room not only let in cheerful natural light, but they also frame the gorgeous greenery that surrounds this home, inviting the outside in. Floor-to-ceiling windows that double as sliding doors are in the dining room, letting you feel immersed in the Pacific Northwest outdoors no matter the weather. And large windows in the bedrooms help to create a relaxing atmosphere to unwind in! 

4. Several smart updates. 

While this home features many vintage elements, you’ll find a long list of updates that ensure this dialed-in residence is ready to take on the future. A new 50-year roof, new LVP flooring, stunning custom updated baths, and fresh exterior and interior paint are all in the mix.
