There is a private dock for mooring your boat and you can launch at either Lake Sammamish State Park in nearby Issaquah,or Vasa Park, just a couple blocks away (fee to launch in both locations).
The beautiful, large yard features mature landscaping with an expansive grassy area stretching from near the house to the private sandy beach. Enjoy the fire pit down by the beach along with the vintage gazebo for outdoor meals. Or just step out the front door to the huge deck with new automatic awning and enjoy the amazing views of Lake Sammamish. The deck with a grill, comfortable patio furniture is the ideal place for BBQ dinners with family or friends. And what could be better than a breathtaking sunrise with your morning coffee?!

We have visited or lived in the West Lake Sammamish area for 40 years. When this 1920's house became available, we bought it and lived in the house for a few years completing many upgrades. After a few years it became a vacation rental. Best thing we ever did! We have been able to continue updating the property & have met wonderful people from all over the world!
Location, Location and Location.!! The location is convenient to everything. We love being on the lake, but we are also about 15 minutes from the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Seattle Aquarium, Seahawks, Sounders and Mariners games. We also enjoy wine and beer tasting at Chateau Ste Michelle, Columbia Winery and Red Hook Brewery which are about 20 minutes away.
Lake Sammamish is simply the best.. The land around the house has a lush greenery almost like a private park. This private waterfront property has panoramic views of the lake and the Cascade mountains. We were so delighted to find we have jumping fish, soaring eagles, blue herons, lake otters, giant turtles, ducklings and pippens playing nearby all day long.
Downtown Bellevue which is about 10 minutes drive away provides culturally diverse, world class shopping and dining opportunities with the magical beauty and greenery of the Pacific Northwest.
