Upon opening the door to The Sweetwater Estate on Lake Sammamish there is a presence of mind that washes over you as you anticipate the picturesque views that are about to come into clarity. Moving into the grand entry overlooking the great lawn that leads to 85 feet of no-bank waterfront, it lends immediate permission to daydream. There is one thing you know for sure, The Sweetwater Estate is your oasis.
French doors spill onto the patio viewing lakefront, accented by a seamless flow between the kitchen and living spaces. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee in the garden room and greet the day with blooming flowers and the sounds of the lake. As you plan for your day, you know the chef’s kitchen is primed for whatever culinary need arises, from a weekend brunch or cocktail party to casual weeknight dinners and family gatherings. On game day, the media room becomes your sideline, with the action playing on the screen. In the midst of the festivities, you pause to reflect on the beauty of life as guests mingle and music dances through the air.
A day of recreation on Lake Sammamish starts with the lake lapping at your toes and continues with aquatic adventures embarked upon from your personal dock. A boat lift and dock beg for friends to come calling atop the waves for a summer barbecue. The expanse of the lawn calls for a friendly game of croquet or badminton, while lavish celebrations are executed flawlessly with a butler’s entry for catering and event staff. Without a care in the world, your waterside fun translates to evening entertaining with an outdoor rinse station and mudroom/shower that serve as a wet feet retreat. Clean up after your dip in the lake or a soak in the hot tub then throw your grilling favorites on the barbecue and engage in lively conversation underneath the covered outdoor fireplace.
