Sure, some can brag about their houseboats; but buy this house and you can flip that and brag about your boathouse, the largest one on Lake Sammamish, evidently. It's stylish, handy, and large; but there's more to this 0.94 acre property to justify the $2,998,000 price.
Start with the lot because 155 feet of Lake Sammamish sandy shoreline is uncommon. You get half a football field of private water access that includes a boathouse nicer than most houses; plus two boat lifts, so your boats don't have to get any wetter than necessary. They can't accumulate aquatic hitchhikers if they're stored out of the water. The boats also get to live under cover, so they won't get rained on, either. Very fastidious boating.
While the parts of the property along the water may be the most notable, that nearly three million dollar list price is also buying a 4 bedroom, 4.25 bathroom, 3,980 square foot house that was built in 1994. The style is Northwest Contemporary, which means it fits in with decades of houses from mid-century to now. Timeless has its benefits. The wood and beam ceilings, the long windows framing the view, and the open architecture don't require updates and upgrades as frequently as ultra-modern homes that may look dated, or even out of place, in a few years.
Between the water and the house is a series of decks and other opportunities to lounge, relax, and watch people play in their boats. Lake Sammamish doesn't get the commercial marine traffic of the Sound, Lake Union, or Lake Washington. Instead, watch sailboats, fishing boats, and jet skis ride by - or switch from being a spectator to a participant and launch your own boat. They are supposed to get wet on occasion, you know.
