Seattle Modern Lakefront Home - Views From All Floors - Private Dock


Property Details

Updated: Jul 5, 2016
Seattle Lakefront Home - 6 Miles To Downtown Seattle

Wonderful lakefront home....Spectacular views all year round.

Relax and enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Washington and Mt. Rainier as you enjoy a drink or for that matter dinner on the deck. This house can sleep up to 12 people with 5 bedrooms and a queen sized sleeper sofa on the lower level.

You are minutes from downtown Seattle yet can walk down to the lake and take a dip from the dock if you like (please be advised the path down to the lake is steep nor is there a life guard so it is not suitable for un-escorted young children).

Partial list of amenities include:

- 4 of the 5 bedrooms have lake view

- Large view deck with sitting area and dining area

- 2 indoor living rooms, both with lake views

- Gourmet kitchen with Wolf Range and Sub Zero Fridge

- Wide open floor plan

- 2 car garage plus 2 parking spots in driveway

- 3 king sized beds

This is a very special and serene home.

Great lakeside home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is in a quiet neighborhood near UW and is lake front, although it's a steep walk down to the water. My parents are in their 70's and didn't feel comfortable walking down by themselves. For the younger set, it was fine. Some furniture on the lawn by the lake would be a nice addition, as there was nothing comfortable to sit on down there.

The home was clean when we arrived, the kitchen was well-equipped, and we had everything we needed. It is close enough to the city that getting downtown by car or light rail was easy. Yet the view from the home is serene, and it's a relaxing place to spend the day. The deck overlooks Lake Washington and has a great view of Mt. Rainer, and there is plenty of furniture for lounging up there. We spent most of our time on the deck. We definitely would stay here again.

Air Conditioning Problems

  • 4 of 5

We could not get the air conditioning to work. Upstairs was boiling and downstairs was freezing. We called and left a message with the representative but he never came to check it. Everything else worked well and we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: I'm glad my guest liked everything but the a/c system. The upper level of this house has enourmous windows facing east and on really sunny days the A/C system can't keep up with the solar gain during the day. We called and explained this to one of the guests but I'm guessing the message didn't filter through to everyone staying at the house.

Great Location; Great View; Worn House

  • 3 of 5

Laurelhurst is a wonderful neighborhood in Seattle with close proximity to downtown, the U District, and many attractions. The house is situated on Lake Washington with a wonderful view, though lake access can be challenging. If you safely traverse the pathway to the lake you are greeted with a beautiful lakefront, but unfortunately no chairs to be able to sit and enjoy it with.

The house itself is as depicted, but when you see it in person, it is worn and a bit tired. There was mold in one of the showers and no towel bars in any of the bathrooms. As noted by a previous reviewer, there are speakers throughout the house, but they have been disabled out of respect for the neighbors. This is understandable, but you'll need to make other arrangements if you would like to enjoy some music.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family over the 4th of July at the Lakefront home and it was wonderful! The patio was great for relaxing and sharing a meal. There is a large grassy area where my grandsons could play football or run around on. Although we did not catch any fish, the grandkids had fun using their fishing poles off the end of the dock. The location is so convenient to parks, the zoo, Ballard locks and downtown attractions. There is a beautiful shopping center minutes away with great shops and restaurants. My whole family commented that this was one of our best vacations because of the lovely home we were able to share together. Great memories were made!

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all. Everything you need, plenty of room, nicely decorated, plenty of very comfortable beds, well-supplied kitchen and an amazing view.

Sorry to see stereo system disconnected but we just brought along a wireless speaker for inside. I honestly cannot think of another single we were lacking during our 4-day family stay. Loved it!
