Live across the 4th Tee in Sand Point Country Club


LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! My newest listing for sale is right across the street from the 4th tee of the 18-hole Sand Point Golf Course at 8024 Fairway Drive.

The Club’s website reads that, ‘Sand Point Country Club is the only private golf club in Seattle with all of the amenities of a country club. In addition to a challenging 18-hole course designed by one of the Northwest’s preeminent early-day golf architects, Francis L. James, and a covered, heated driving range, Sand Point boasts a junior Olympic-sized swimming pool and wading pool, four outdoor and lighted tennis courts, a 24/7 Fitness Center with club-approved fitness trainers, a full-service Dining Room and Lounge, and beautiful banquet facilities’.

The Sand Point Country Club exclusive gates have always included sought after addresses. Homes rarely come up for sale. There have only been 4 sales in the Club this year.

Sand Point Country Club is in the Seattle School District.  Sand Point Elementary, Eckstein Middle School, and Roosevelt High School are the highly rated schools that service the area.

The home is great for a buyer who loves to entertain in a lot of space. There are six bedrooms and 3.75 bathrooms.

The highlight of the home is a 1200 square foot “great room” where fun is unveiled! The existing pool table comes with the home. There is a wet bar, ¾ bathroom and French doors into the kitchen.

Please feel free to call me with any questions you may have regarding the property. I look forward to working with you!

List Price $1,895,950

Sold in Sand Point!

Are you Country Club shopping?  You may be interested in checking out the Sand Point Country Club located in the northeast part of Seattle.

Sand Point Country Club boasts that it is the only private 18-hole golf club in Seattle that offers all the amenities of a country club – golf, tennis, swimming, fitness facility, and restaurant.  They only allow 400 members so interested golfers should expect to be placed on a waiting list.

I just sold this 2,800 square foot, mid-century home for $1,492.500 in the prized neighborhood.  Although the lot is only 7,200 square feet,  it features gorgeous, mature Japanese maples in the back yard creating privacy for the entertainer’s patio. Although they loved the location and the extensive amenities offered at the Club, my buyers are getting away from it all and semi-retiring to Bend, Oregon.

We were successful in selling this listing for just under $1.5 million.

Available real estate is just as rare as memberships in this small community of just over 200 homes. On par with the Seattle real estate market, listed homes are slim and right now there is only one home available for sale –  a small 1,800 sq. ft. home for sale at 8000 Fairway Dr. NE for $1,050,000. The lot is a large 9,760 sq. ft. and is located in a prime corner lot across from the fairway. This is definitely a “must see” for any builder.  They will be looking at offers on November 20, 2017, so let me know if you would like to talk about how I can help you make an offer.

I look forward to working with you.  This is a great opportunity.

Real Estate Coddess Unveils the Emerald City

I am the Real Estate Coddess.  Welcome to my “everything surrounding Seattle” blog! I hope to bring to you not just engaging content about our crazy Seattle real estate market but also share with you great parks and restaurants in the area.  I’ll choose events and topics that will interest you as someone looking to relocate or make a move within the surrounding Puget Sound region.

I love watching the transformation of homes and as someone who is “DIY certified,”  I can share with you some of my own successes in home improvement as well as the ideas that maybe didn’t work out so well.

You may live in Seattle but need some ideas of where to go to take advantage of all that our city offers.  I’ve lived here my whole life and have watched the city change into one of the most vibrant and sought after regions in the country.  In Seattle, my husband, Tracy, and I have bought and sold many homes as well as a condo and we were even fortunate to own a floating home.   All of these housing options have their pros and cons and as your real estate professional I can help you navigate through the process of buying and selling your home.  This is a great place to live and I can help unveil what the Emerald City has to offer.
