This is a home in which the owner(s) set a "dream price" - a price they'd be willing to sell it for, as well as to test the waters and gauge interest. This property is not found on a multiple listing service (MLS).

A Zestimate® home valuation is Zillow's estimated market value. It is not an appraisal. Use it as a starting point to determine a home's value. Learn more

We don't currently have this house for sale, but it's starting to look like we may have to move soon for a new job. So if you are interested please contact us as we might be able to come to an arrangement. I've seen Square footage measurements from 4100 (in original Zillow listing) to 4444 (in the inspection I paid for before I purchased the home). County has it listed at 4322 so that's what I went with.
The "Description" section above (sometimes it shows up sometimes it doesn't so if you don't see what I'm talking about, its no big deal) was written by the previous owner, or agent. Zillow does not give me a way to edit it. We have made many improvements since we bought the house in 2009.
Brazilian Cherry floors, cherry cabinets, 3 gas fireplaces, 15,000sf 1/3 acre view lot. Expansive views of Lake Whatcom. Lake View from 4 out of 5 bedrooms. Finish the plummed in kitchen in basement for a nearly 1300sf basement appartment for Live in Nanny or Mother-in-law suite.
We've added a theater room in the basement, Air conditioning, upgraded appliances, Cork flooring in the "roughed in basement kitchen" Currently used as a craft room, new carpeting throughout house. New much better quality ultra quiet dishwasher. New high efficiency furnace with merv 16 allergen filtration and added Air-Conditioning. Added a sink in the Laundry room, remote controlled dimming wall sconces in the Family room and Theater room. Additional power outlets in Family room. (When all the electronics were on and we tried to vacuum the rugs it blew the circuit, problem solved now.)
We've also added Conduit inside walls for pulling speaker wire for 5.1surround in the family room, and 7.2 surround in the theater room. We've added conduit for networking throughout the basement with 3 locations also in the Family room. It would not be difficult to add jacks to the living room if needed. All lines will come into the closet under the stairs in the basement where you can keep a home server, network drives, hubs/switches, wireless router and even your cable modem. We'll soon have it so all phone jacks in the upstairs bedrooms will work as either telephone or networking. This is really handy for whole home DVRs, and faster, more secure and reliable than wireless.
We definitely have a million dollar view, and it's a very beautiful home. We've made many improvements. It is a fantastic house we'll hate to leave it, but you'll love it.
Neighborhood Description
Quiet neighborhood near Geneva Elementary School. Also easy walking distance to a Waldorf School. Just down the street from The Firs. Kids of various ages in the area.
 
What I love about the home
Fantastic View! Watching Bald Eagles and Osprey Fishing or just soaring over the lake. The eagles occasionally perch on trees in the yard. Watching the baby deer grow up all spring and summer as they walk through/sleep in the yard. Many songbirds and squirrels playing in the large Maple tree just outside the dining room. Large yard, at the end of a dead end street, would be great for kids. Close enough to busy streets to be easily accessible to get into town, but far enough away you rarely hear the traffic. Large kitchen with plenty of cabinet space. Plenty of room to spread out, and room for all our stuff. Very open floor plan on the main floor would be great for entertaining, that with the high ceilings makes it feel very open. The roughly 1500 square feet of Brazilian cherry flooring looks fantastic and is very durable. The flooring guy told me it was 6 times harder than oak, and the color gets richer as it ages. In some lighting it looks iridescent. If you are a football fan like me, you can get DirecTV here so you can get NFL Sunday ticket and see all the games.

Zillow predicts 98229 home values will increase 0.7% next year, compared to a 0.5% decrease for Geneva as a whole. Among 98229 homes, this home is 132.3% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, but is priced 1.9% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 98229, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 284.6% higher than in Geneva, and 4.8% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 98229 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Geneva.
