Every day is like a vacation when you come home to this prized Bavarian-inspired chalet!
This amazing property feels like a weekend getaway retreat and is the perfect setting for this chalet-inspired home, set back for added privacy, with a trickling creek spanned by your own personal bridge while birds sing from tall evergreens and established shrubs, on a very low-traffic non-through street of beautiful homes!
In classic Alpine tradition, the house features a wood, stucco, and stone exterior, steeply pitched double-gabled shake roof, and a white stone fireplace, with a similarly detailed two-car garage set back from the entry.
A large entry porch, with stone accent wall and covered deck, welcomes you to the front door – with stained-glass side lights – opening to a roomy foyer.
Entering the open living and dining room, the vaulted ceilings and two-story high stone fireplace (with tiled hearth) create a dramatic effect, and French doors open to the front porch. The rustic-styled kitchen has a gas stove, a bay-windowed breakfast nook and the sink has a window that looks over the wide back yard; a hallway serves two main floor bedrooms (including the master with ensuite bath), the powder room, a huge laundry / utility room with loads of built-in cabinets, egress to the back yard, pantry, linen closet, coat closet, and under-stair storage! Plus, there are built-in speakers throughout for synchronized music!
The formal staircase takes you up to two more bedrooms with soaring ceilings, a full bath with travertine stone floor and a tiled shower surround, another linen closet, and – a wonderful large family room that overlooks the living room below and has a lovely cedar-lined covered porch adjacent, which extends the living space and provides a great perch for watching the birds hop from tree to tree while overlooking the creek!
A large deck just out the back is ideal for BBQing, and opens to the patio and giant terraced and fenced backyard which happens to have a chicken coop at the back (chickens optional). There’s lots of room here for gardening and play!
There’s plenty of parking; in addition to the garage (with a convenient person- door giving access from the back yard), there’s a long driveway plus street parking in front of the house.
This unique chalet was custom-built and designed by the original builder- owner, a truly one-of-a-kind home on a spectacular Bellevue property. It’s a great place for entertaining with friends or just hanging with family!
