Seattle's best kept secret. Even locals will make memories in this house and on this beach. Nestled among Madrona trees on private Seola Beach is this masterfully built home. This setting rivals the best of anything Washington has to offer and is unbelievably within 15 minutes of downtown Seattle and the Sea-Tac Airport (and it has a mooring buoy). Once inside the gated driveway, your breath is taken away. You've left Seattle and are at the edge of the Puget Sound.
Sunrise over your left in the morning, sun across the bay and the front of the house throughout the day, sunset on your right (please note actual weather may vary substantially).
This timeless private retreat on an 11-acre lot (including private tidelands) and 200' of waterfront is Puget Sounds' hidden treasure. Come enjoy a morning swim and a relaxing soak in the one-of-a-kind private endless pool and spa or comb the beach for northwest treasures. All this can be enjoyed with the utmost privacy only a home of this magnitude can provide! The miles of beach you can see, you most likely couldn't walk there and back in a day (but you can catch an Uber to a restaurant and then home). Eventually, you will want to explore the house below you down the stairs (please take stairs into account). Boat house fully stocked with paddle boards and various sized PFD’s and boat ramp leading just steps away from the beach!
This one of a kind home is the perfect location for your Seattle retreat. Designed and built by renowned Northwest architect, Jerry Gropp of the Ralph Anderson school of architecture. This 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, 2-kitchen home boasts 270-degree views of Puget Sound, Vashon Island and the Olympic Mountains from every room. The property is gated, has a private boat ramp, a mooring buoy for your boat, multiple decks, patios and gathering areas with large grass (turf) area for games. Also, there is a yoga room with mats and balls (or you can drive a short 8 minutes to The Heart Center).
A stunning oasis both inside and out eagerly awaits your arrival. With an abundance of windows, you're able to take advantage of the breathtaking views overlooking the water from anywhere in the home. This is a wildlife sanctuary with seals, porpoises, sea lions, otter families, bald eagles, osprey, herron, ducks, geese, rock crab, Dungeness crab, clams, giant snails, salmon, seagulls, oystercatchers & occasional Orcas. You will certainly see something new!
