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. Daily living comes together in thoughtful design through every square inch of the home. Catch up on your emails or latest project in a quiet main floor den with an en suite bath. The three-car garage and auto bay provide the space you need for parties and water toy storage, while a corridor leads to the laundry facility complete with an under-mount sink and laundry chute for convenience at the upper level. Ascend the staircase to the upper level of the home and seek refuge in the comfort of the master suite. Prepare for your day with a fresh cup of coffee in the sitting room or open up the hidden closet for a sense of mystery. Unwind after a long day on your own private deck before preparing for bed in a sumptuous en suite bath that exudes warmth and contentment at every turn. Three additional bedrooms on the upper level afford ideal retreats for the rest of the home, with custom built-in window seats, lovely views, and the convenience of a Jack-and-Jill bath. Grab a bucket of popcorn and head into the game room for a night you won’t soon forget, whether it’s a spirited Foosball competition, movie screening or board game tournament. At any time of day, the impeccable grounds ask you to come rejuvenate body and spirit. Step across granite stonework that anchors a Northwest-inspired meditation garden as the sound of the water fountain whirls in the background. Take a moment to enjoy the beauty of the blooms with each step. Birds will chirp as the world awakens and the day will come to a close as the last few rays of sunshine dance upon the waves and you brace yourself for another unforgettable sunset at The Sweetwater Estate. For the 1st time, this Curtis Gelotte designed Cape Cod inspired legacy home is available for purchase.
