Lake Washington waterfront home in northeast Seattle
Located in the Cedar Park neighborhood along the city’s northeastern edge, 13242 Riviera Pl. NE is an urban retreat. Tucked into a dead end street, the home is bounded along two sides by Lake Washington and the Burke-Gilman Trail. A recreationist’s dream—complete with access the city’s most prominent multi-use path and a private dock with boat lift—the home offers plenty of practical amenities, too. Namely, it’s proximity to the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s Hospital and the future light rail station at Northgate.
The Northwest contemporary home was built in 1956, and it’s 1,649-square-foot layout consists of three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Inside, a left turn leads into the bright, spacious living area with sweeping water views, toasty fireplace and deck access. A small, adjoining room features the same inspiring views and could be utilized as an office, library or play space. Taking a right turn from the entry area leads directly to the kitchen and the home’s two additional bedrooms. The kitchen offers ample countertop and cabinet space, plus an eat-in bar that provides visual access into the living room.
Outside, the elevated deck is ideal for watching the waves lap the shoreline over morning coffee. It’s equally well-equipped for couches, tables, a grill and other outdoor entertaining essentials. Down a few steps and across the home’s landscaped yard, endless possibilities are accessible via the home’s private dock. For example, morning swims, weekend kayaking adventures, glassy waterski runs, sunrises over the water and more.
