Do you want a new Lake Washington waterfront home?
Are you willing to wait three years?
Would you be happy with a 95% new home in less than three months? Would you like to choose all the interior finishes, colors, textures, and styles yourself?
My home represents a unique opportunity for the waterfront buyer who does not want to wait three years.
I finished construction of my home in May of 1992. I have lived here ever since. I intend to move sometime within the next 3-4 months.
After 24 years of hard use by me, the interior is clearly due for a remodel.
If necessary I will do the remodel myself. I will make it the way I think you might want it. And then list the property the old fashioned way.
If you want the interior of the house to be redone exactly the way you want, buy it now. Do what interior upgrades you want. And move in in as little as 2-3 months.
My home is ready for a new owner to remake the interior to their own liking.
I have already taken care of the exterior with new roof, new roof top deck, and fresh exterior paint all within the last 24 months.
When I built my home I included numerous construction features which make this home highly desirable.
1) The foundation is unusually heavy duty. It includes steel rebar reinforced concrete footing, and stem walls. In addition, BOTH, cast in place auger piers on all four corners with building grade I-beams reaching up as high as 30 feet, combined with approximately 72 steel pin piers create an exceptionally stable foundation. (I have lived here for 24+years and have never seen any new construction here on Riviera Place with a combination of both cast in place augers and pin piers.)
The preparation for the foundation included a proper drain field. The exposed exterior concrete was treated with waterproofing. The excavated area between the exterior concrete wall and the earth was filled with river rock. In the 24+ years there has never been a drop of moisture in the basement. (In the Riviera Place area this problem is common in most remodeled homes. My home was new construction.
2) Insulation. I had blown-in-bats used in the majority of walls. R values for blown-in-bats are significantly higher than standard insulation. The top floor cathedral ceiling, the flat roof top deck, and the floor between the main level and the master suite all have an r-38 rating. Exterior walls were insulated to an R-22 value. In addition the master suite is wrapped in a cocoon of blown-in-bats insulated to an R-14 value. (See photos) The blown-in-bats also help control noise.
3) Sound proofing. A sound engineer provide a list of items to reduce internal noise. These items included special laminated glass in most windows, cast iron waste water pipes, and points throughout the house that received special attention to seal off potential noise sources.
4) As a chemically sensitive disabled vet, I also went way out of my way to keep formaldehyde and other toxics out of this home.
