Mount Baker waterfront estate with shoreline access and multi-boat dock
Secluded and sophisticated, 1526 Lakeside Ave. S is a sprawling lakeside estate just south of downtown Seattle in the Mount Baker neighborhood. Nestled along 240 feet of Lake Washington frontage, the home’s four bedrooms and five bathrooms are spread across one level and 6,900 square feet. Beyond its light-filled interior spaces, floor-to-ceiling windows and renovated kitchen, the property provides a rare opportunity to own an in-town legacy waterfront retreat.
Along the back of the home, a covered patio, sunny lounge and hot tub all offer expansive views of Lake Washington and neighboring Mercer Island across the water. The yard is lush and well-maintained with mature trees and native vegetation. Watch boats, skiers and wakeboards whiz by, or enjoy a peaceful moment alongside the region’s wildlife, including herons, eagles and osprey.
According to the Puget Sound Business Journal, the home’s previous owners include Brian and Traci Janssen. Brian worked at Microsoft before leaving to found Onyx Software and Traci was an anesthesiologist at Virginia Mason. Before that, the home was built in 1969 by the Friedlanders, a family with deep ties to the region.
The home is available to view by appointment only.
