10263 Maplewood Place SW$1,295,000

This funky, fine, sandy-beach waterfront home is tucked amongst lush trees with southwest exposure and sunset views over the Olympics and Puget Sound. Often in real estate marketing these sorts of descriptions exagerate the “exceptional” or “rare” characteristics of a home. With this home however, it is difficult to overstate the wonder of the setting. The home affords a retreat like lifestyle-just 20 min from downtown.

The thoughtful design begins as a classic Seattle beach cottage, and then turns on a dynamic floorplan modified to maximize the view, the beach, and luxurious living. The concept is open, with social spaces (living, dining, kitchen) that flow to the backyard pool, the outdoor rooms, and eventually the Sound and the mountains. The top floor Master is luxurious, with a gas fireplace, private view deck, and a boldly conceived 5 piece master bath that is stunning in layout and finishes. The cheerful second bedroom is opposite a spacious second bath for guests.

The expansive kitchen will appeal to chefs and entertainers. It is also thoughtfully constructed for everyday use–Carerra marble counters, high end stainless appliances, and ample storage. ┬áThe living and dining spaces are conducive to intimate gatherings and large parties alike.

The outside spaces are special. At the entry, a brick courtyard and trickling water feature are welcoming and grounding. On the waterside, the custom, in-ground pool has a newer, high efficiency heater/pump. The lawn (exceptionally rare among Puget Sound waterfront homes) has a sprinkler system. The new 900 sq ft composite deck has a gas fire pit and dedicated power (for nighttime lighting). It overlooks the beach- a perfect perch for watching ferries, sail boat races, and paddle boarders as well as the resident bald eagles, blue herons and orcas. The path down to the sandy beach (another rare feature under modern shoreline management) provides easy access.
