The Kirkland Guest House was built in 1974 as a "pool house" complete with clear cedar walls, high ceilings, peeled poles and master mason brick work. It was built by two Swedish carpenters and was the feature property in the Seattle Times that year. In 2014 it was updated with all new appliances in the kitchen, a new gas fireplace, a 2 person Nordic hot tub and a full size stacking washer and dryer.
The guest house is a studio house that features a full kitchen with a gourmet oven, a built in queen size bed with luxury bedding, a private bathroom, shower room and living room with a gas fireplace and 48" TV with DirectTV.
The guest house is located in a quiet neighborhood on 4 acres that borders Big Finn Hill park, a 220 acre county park. Large trees, gardens and wildlife are all part of this Pacific Northwest property.
