Spied on a sun-dappled lane in THE sought after Kirkland Highlands community, passers-by marvel at a rambler that’s the envy of the neighborhood. More than manicured, the front yard presents itself like a wedding portrait.
The rolling lawn shows off a diagonally striped mowing pattern, while a wide driveway with crisp edging leads to the graceful lace leaf maple that’s perfectly surrounded by well-rounded bushes like bridesmaids around a bride. Handsome double-wide garage door has stylish cutout windows glinting in the sun with a knowing wink. Crisp white trim, like a well-ironed collar, outlines the newly painted house against a choir ring of evergreens standing out back.
Inside, the 3 bedroom 2 bath home for sale in the Kirkland Highlands is even more amazingly attended to throughout its 1420 square feet. The walls are newly painted in a coffee plantation palette of mocha, java, sienna. New moldings and doors make the whole house feel new.
Huge windows welcome natural light into the living room; the cathedral ceiling creates a sense of spaciousness. The fireplace, with a dramatic brick surround encased in a white formal mantel, gives the room an elegant feel (yet the big screen above the fireplace turns this space into a chic media room with one click).
Excellent flow; this Kirkland Highlands home for sale has a formal dining area that sits open-faced to the living room. Gleaming kitchen passes the white glove test with ease. Masterful updates in 2010-2011 create an urban cucina with cozy eating area: new appliances, cool track lighting, charismatic pendant light and chandelier, sleek stainless steel double sink--and a bright view window overlooking the party on the patio (with this home so close to downtown Kirkland, you’ll be hosting many get togethers!).
Both bathrooms sport new updates as well – the pedestal sink is so European!

As with the master, the other two bedrooms in this Kirkland Highlands home for sale offer large windows to bring in the light and fresh air.
The backyard presents itself like an oversized Zen garden, at 8924 square feet. The mosaic-like stone patio is a masterpiece – surrounded by river rock and edged with pavers, it is the perfect outdoor summer living room. And beyond the patio there is even more – a thick carpet of grass stands up to lawn chairs, sloping rock terrace with gracious plant groupings invites evening strolls, and that choir of trees standing tall beyond the fence create a perfect backdrop for stargazing.

Strolling here is a favorite pastime with Kirkland’s charming shops and the waterfront’s view restaurants offering exciting destinations.
