THIS is Portage Bay!

  • Location that tricks you.

    Surrounded in your private garden with Portage Bay as your back drop, it doesn’t get much better than this! The garden is mature with purposeful placement fostering a true sense of seclusion and calm. It’s you, Portage Bay, and perfume from the garden helping you unwind after work. Best part… You can get anywhere from this home quickly. In terms of work centers you are set with Bellevue, SLU, Capitol Hill, Eastlake or University District just moments from your door. But when you're at home, you’ll be unaware of the city that surrounds you. Bliss has been defined!

  • Money on the side, space for you.

    This home can serve two purposes. Perhaps you have no need for the 3,080 square feet of space at present. But maybe you also want your forever home a little earlier? You could consider this home. There is a perfect AirBNB space in the full walk out basement of this home. Complete with full kitchen, washer & dryer, two bedrooms and a large living space. At 1,000 square feet, this ADU would make good money even renting long term. Would also be a great space for family staying short or long term. See numbers by scrolling down.

  • Sight on Portage Bay

    Well we could let the pictures do the talking. Still, as good as they are the in person experience is better. The best thing about the view is watching Portage Bay unfold in front of you with many maritime activities and Cascade Mountains in the distance. Opening day happens in front of your expansive entertainers deck. Possibilities!!! You’ll get to watch the row team train, boats leisurely floating by and the bay isn’t bad on its own. Ducks quacking, waives lapping and you’ll be sipping wine from your own glass. Truly a unique Seattle experience.

  • EXCELLENT SCHOOLS

    Schools in the area are phenomenal—all of the local public schools rate FAR above average, and you also have your choice of prestigious private schools in the immediate area (for example, Seattle Prep is only 0.7 miles from home!).

welcome home

I've stood the test of time for almost a century. My Tudor curves and details remain intact but don't worry, I've had work done. Modern amenities dovetail yesteryears charm. I act new but look old and charming. Enter my trellised gate and be transformed by my secret garden with Portage Bay as the back drop. Let your gaze dance across Portage Bay & beyond. Cohesive living spaces provide for relaxed or energized entertaining. Let the party flow outdoors if it suits you. Extra living space on lower level can be rented or AirBNB. You can also keep it for yourself. Create calm in your life along with new memories! + MORE

Some people have a love-hate relationship with Tudors, but you won’t find any awkward layouts here! Modern living can be enjoyed in the chef-ready kitchen, the sumptuous master suite complete with an ensuite bath, and spacious living areas ideal for entertaining.

LOCATION & COMMUTE

Enjoy being tucked away in the Montlake neighborhood while still being wonderfully close to commute options and conveniences. You’re literally just a 1-minute drive to Interstate-5 and a 2-minute drive to hop onto the 520 Bridge… a DREAM for those who work on the Eastside or for anyone who needs to get right into Eastlake, South Lake Union, or Downtown. In your immediate neighborhood you’ll find places like Strength Studio, Little Lago, bus lines blocks away, and the Queen City Yacht Club is just down the street. If you work in the medical industry this home is also well suited. Near UW, Fred Hutch, Childrens, and several bio-tech firms.

MONEY ON THE SIDE OR SPACE FOR YOU

This home can serve two purposes. Perhaps you have no need for the 3,080 square feet of space at present. But maybe you also want your forever home a little earlier? You could consider this home. There is a perfect AirBNB space in the full walk out basement of this home. Complete with full kitchen, washer & dryer, two bedrooms and a large living space. At 1,000 square foot this ADU would make good money even renting long term. Would also be a great space for family staying short or longterm. This is not some dark and dank basement. This lower level has three doors, and large windows drenching the space in sunlight. The bedrooms are all conforming. Potential to earn much of the mortgage while you enjoy your stunning home on Portage Bay. Something to think about… Someday, when you need the space you can reclaim the lower level and use the space as you wish. We ran numbers on this. Luckily we have a friend doing the same thing down the street from this home. The average nightly rate annually is $195 per night with 70% occupancy. For those doing the math that is $4151.86. That is more than half the mortgage.

SIGHT ON PORTAGE BAY

Views of iconic Portage Bay and Montlake Cut are all yours from this fabulous locale, and where else can you find a home on the water for less than 2 million?! You’ve got front row seats to crew races, Seafair festivities, and opening day for boating, not to mention the way the water magically shimmers as the sun sets. Take in the view right from bed in the master suite, or sunbathe on your deck out in the fresh air!

EXCELLENT SCHOOLS

Schools in the area are phenomenal—all of the local public schools rate FAR above average, and you also have your choice of prestigious private schools in the immediate area (for example, Seattle Prep is only 0.7 miles from home!).
