For Sale: Journey Through Burienâ€™s History In Lakefront Craftsman Estate
We’d like to welcome our latest Advertiser: Coldwell Banker Danforth, who is selling a historic home on Lake Burien.
They’d like our Readers to know about this historic property, so here’s their marketing info:
Constructed in 1912 by early settler Fred Dashley, this was the first well-built home on Lake Burienâ€™s shoreline. Dashley was one of the early settlers of this region during the turn on the century and he and his brother Bill were instrumental in promoting land sales in the area. During these early times through today, it appears that there have been seven owners of this stately property. The documented history that has been passed on is filled with not only the updates to the home and grounds, but also of the love and care this fortunate home has received over many years of entertainment; cub scout meetings, ping pong tournaments, a Halloween spook house and of course the endless days of swimming and boating on the lake.
You will absolutely fall in love with this turn of century home nestled on 73 feet of desirable lake front and walled from the world by mature and truly beautiful landscaping.Â Greeted by lush greenery along the private circular drive; you will feel at home as you look up at this historical craftsman treasure with traditional covered porch, exposed timbers embedded in true stucco, and diamond panel windows that have stood the test of time.
Once inside, you will be greeted by a large formal entry featuring high ceilings and all the period details you would expect from a home of this stature.Â A grand living room complete with picturesque window seat, hardwood floors with inlayed walnut detailing and a dramatic fireplace, opens to the spacious formal dining room filled with windows and breathtaking views of the lake and grounds.Â The expansive kitchen shares the same stunning views, a generous eating space and all the perfect touches of this endearing era, yet completely updated with high-end appliances, custom designed cabinetry, marble counter tops and impeccable craftsmanship.
The luxurious Master Suite enjoys sweeping views of the lake and a cozy sitting area with a gas fireplace; while the master bath is a private oasis with extraordinary lake views, a soothing jetted tub, separate oversized shower and walk in closet.
The lower level is an all out entertainment space with a media room, new kitchen and an inviting guest bedroom with full bath and plenty of room for games and fun with family and friends.
Stroll outside to the view deck that overlooks the impressive yard, garden house with authentic river rock fireplace and floating dock complete with an eight person party barge.Â Cruise the lake while enjoying cocktails and dinner with friends under beautiful sunsets or grab your fly fishing rod and enjoy fishing from your backyard. This grand home and lake setting are the perfect combination for entertaining at its finest.
This unique property could also be an exciting Bed and Breakfast opportunity.
