Seeking Seattle’s best Big View property? Consider the home we were lucky to find hidden away nearly 20 years ago.
Our house sits atop a remarkable view property providing perfect privacy — a 1/2-acre urban sanctuary close to both downtown and the airport yet worlds away, 3-car garage attached.
Entirely hidden from the street, our updated 30-year-ago house is designed to feature an unobstructed 320-degree view that’s centered on Blake Island and the sweep of the Olympics to the west, extends fully down the long reach of Vashon Island to the sunny south, and wraps around to an eastern view of greenbelt crowned by Mt. Rainier.
Atop its own terraced, beautifully mature hillside, the sweeping views are property line protected — and there’s not a power line in sight! These iPhone photos can’t do the awe-factor justice.
Lincoln Park and its expansive public shoreline abutting the Vashon/Southworth ferry is just down the hill. Birders will marvel at the variety winging around our own private greenbelt.
A 3,380-sq-ft home (4 beds/2.5 baths/2 west-facing decks/ironwood entryway) custom built to commercial spec 30 years ago (step-by-step build photos are available along with blueprints), every room has been updated including the incredible in-the-clouds master suite. Meticulously maintained inside and out, available for review is a geo-tech report just updated by the same well-known, highly regarded engineer we engaged when we first considered investing in our home. The 10-year-old roof is over-built, rated for 130 mph winds. We’re heating/cooking with gas.
Adjacent to the large, immaculate garage is an RV/trailer parking spot. A separate entryway to the lower of the three stories makes it easy to create a MIL suite. (We’ve considered building another suite above the garage but decided to leave that decision to another day, or someone else.)
We are the second owners.
Want full-reveal photos of the house (brick/cedar siding) and all property details? Great. Obviously, vetting is required from the outset.
Please, no realtors: we’re simply in no hurry here, not wishing to list on the MLS anytime soon…yet meantime, as we consider our next move, perhaps this ad finds just the right enthusiast seeking the most perfectly private Huge View home, someone ready and able to convince us to downsize.
(And if you’ve got a Porsche, Ferrari, Maserati, McLaren, Lambourgini, BMW M and/or other fun cars that warrant safe cover, they’ll find the garage is a bright room with the full western view too!)
