Located in Richmond Beach, this house is a part of a 150 year old waterfront community eight miles north of downtown Seattle boasting beach shacks and mansions. It's safe and ideal for the family. With the downtown Seattle area just a 20 minute drive away and the quaint seaside town of Edmonds is just 5 minutes away this is a prime location to retreat or explore.
This recently remodeled 1935 house was renovated to accommodate an active, imaginative and ever growing family. Their playfulness and attention to detail makes it as much a sanctuary as it is an inspiration, leaving a lasting impression on everyone who stays there. Watch the sunset over the Olympic Mountain Range, take the stairs to the beach, relax in the hot tub over looking the water and the Burlington Northern Railway or cozy up by the fire after a day of exploring the city.
Several entertainment options including a 65' screen T.V. backed by an Academy sponsored DVD collection of the best movies ever made are available for your enjoyment. A large stone shower/bath set in a spacious master bath complements the master bedroom with a fireplace. Two full work stations are available with million dollar views accompanied by a cozy reading nook to take in some peace and quiet. Climb the ladder into the extensive library, and find a small bedroom with two single beds perfect for imaginative kids and adults alike. There is one more single bedroom upstairs that completes the upper floor.
On the main floor you will find an impressive open room with tables to seat 20 people, beautiful long wood floors, a stunning stone fire place, grand piano and luxurious bench seating to compliment every inch of big window views. Attached to the main room is a large kitchen with counter tops made from a reclaimed sailboat, a viking oven and gas burners, a large fridge big enough for any family and almost everything you would need to prepare and serve food no matter what the occasion. Also on the mail floor you will find three bathrooms (one with a claw foot bathtub), a laundry room, another bedroom with a queen and bunk single bed and every child's dream playroom equipped with books and toys galore.
If that isn't enough to wet your vacation rental appetite, you'll find a Sundance style independent apartment lit up by ground level windows facing the ocean. With a kitchen, gas fireplace, queen bed and bathroom as well as a private entrance this addition gives privacy to multiple family rentals. And last but definitely not last is a quaint guest house located outside of the main floor of the house. It is furnished with a futon bed, bathroom, shower, and kitchenette and makes for a great get away for teens or single adult (the apartment and guest house available only by request - additional cleaning fee may apply).
Whether you're having a small family gathering, business retreat, west coast getaway, or reuniting with friends, this house is dynamic enough to make anyone feel like they're at home.

I am a film maker who after spending the majority of my career making major motion pictures have founded The School Of Life Project, a film initiative to increase the social and emotional development of youth all over the world. My wife is a successful clothing designer who is equally involved in the film project as she is in her own career. Julie and I are parents to 4 strange and wonderful children. Our eldest son Max and his wife Whitney, along with our daughter Madeline are all pursuing careers within the family businesses. Oliver and Leah who are both ten, keep us young and constantly learning. Family is the most important thing to us, and we hope that is evident in the structure and the feel of our home.
This property screamed 'life long journey' when I first saw it. I dreamed of kids climbing that beautiful maple tree in the back, swinging on the rope swing, collecting shells on the beach, and traipsing sand over every inch of the house. I imagined being able to host our growing family for holidays, gathering friends for celebrations and never getting tired of watching the sunset after a long days work... My dreams all came true.
There is nothing about this property that wasn't thought through. From its larger than life windows to let in every inch of sunrise and sunset, to the secret bedroom in the lofted library or intricate design features in every room, each portion of this house has a reason and a story behind it.
We stayed at this amazing home for 6 nights. We had a mix of friends and family for a total of 12 people on any given night. We had an infant, preschooler, high schoolers, and grandparents in the mix. We arrived late on Monday night to a well lighted and warm home. The entire house seems to have radiant floor heat which was a huge blessing to my elderly mom as she gets cold easily. There was a welcome basket from Max (caretaker) full of local goodies and brew! Max and his wife even vacated the bottom apartment to allow more sleeping space. The family with the infant used that space. The "cottage" was used by our 2 teenagers. They enjoyed having their own space. The home is amazing! Every corner holds a creative secret or interesting artifact. We could have stayed there for 2 weeks and never discovered all of it's glory. Our 3 year old grandson marveled at the train set which provided hours of entertainment. The kitchen is wonderful and fully equipped. Specifically, the gas cook top! The master bedroom mattress was the most comfortable we have ever slept in. Even when the electricity went out, we enjoyed family games by candlelight and warmth by the fireplace. Even though theweather was mostly windy and rainy (which is expected for this time of year in Washington), our teenagers still tried to brave the waters with our blow-up kayaks. This lasted about 5 minutes as the waves were pretty big and common sense prevailed. Teenagers will be teenagers. Speaking of teenagers, when the electricity was out, our teenage boys found their more primal side and started a fire in the outdoor fire pit. The sunsets were indescribable. So amazingly beautiful. Thank you Stevenson family for providing our extended family a place to be together for Thanksgiving!
We rented the beach House for our daughters graduation from Medical School. The house served our family of 13, ages 6 mos. to 73 years very well. The 3 yr. old boys went crazy over the rope swing, and for the little girls just being outside with all the toys was perfect. The beach supplied hours of adventure for all and the quiet and beautiful sunsets made a perfect ending to every busy day. The fully stocked kitchen made it delightful to have dinners for our family and friends. Hope we can do it again. It was a perfect family vacation.
We rented the house on Richmond beach for my son’s small backyard wedding. We used the waterfront as the back drop for the ceremony and the big beautiful tree provided shade and the weather was warm. The seating for 20 people was perfect for our needs and the kitchen provided everything we needed to host a reception and other family meals. This home is even more beautiful than the photos. Max and Whitney went out of their way to meet all our needs to make special memories our family will always remember. We would love to return someday to this home for another family gathering. Thank you!
Our extended family stayed at this property for our Thanksgiving reunion. The house is VERY fun - full of quirky little passageways and twists here and there. Our grandchildren thought the library/loft area was the best. They had their own little retreat. They loved the trains and raced out to greet them. There was plenty of room to fix and eat the big Thanksgiving meal together. The apartment downstairs is adorable and allows privacy for anyone needing it. The view is stunning and the sunsets, spectacular. The property manager Max went out of his way to accommodate a few needs we had and we were very grateful. The community is wonderful - we all got up early Thanksgiving morning and did the Shoreline Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, which was free! A great way to see the community and get some fresh air before indulging. We all had a great time and were very comfortable and happy.
Everything was as advertised and we had a great time at the house. The property was as represented in the photos and the areas were there were no photos posted were equally stunning. House was roomy with very unique features. We had a party of eight and had plenty of room and did not even use the loft (2 twin beds) or the little shack with a full futon. We had outstanding weather and was able to utilize the lawn, swing, firepit and BBQ on numerous days. The kitchen and dining area were large and able to accomodate us with ease. It was centrally located for us and allowed us to go both south in the city or north with ease. Great view and we could see various fireworks on the 4th from different cities across the bay. Cher was very easy to work with and even offered to get us in a little early on our check-in day so we could bust it back out for the Seattle Sounders soccer game. That was before we encountered the Seattle traffic so as it turned out we couldn't take advantage of her kind offer. But this is just an example of how easy Cher and the owners were to work with. I would recommend this property to anyone and we will plan on a return stay on our next trip to the great Northwest.
Some friends and I rented this house for a get-away weekend and had an incredible time. The house was breathtakingly beautiful - both with the Puget Sound views and the amazing, stylish interior decorating. I could not have dreamed up a better home myself and I wanted to move in and never leave!
Lots of spacious rooms, plenty of comfortable beds, a kitchen to die for and and great views in a quiet, nice neighborhood. We had such a great time and even stopped by the local bar down the street for a nightcap. This house is truly a gem and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
