Kirkland house comes with ‘everything' — even a boat

If you're looking for a turn-key house and happen to have $5.5 million burning a hole in your pocket, then here's a deal for you.

Realogics Sotheby's International Realty is marketing a four-bedroom, five-bath waterfront home on the Eastside, with all the furniture included.

The 8,100-square-foot house even comes with a 27-foot Cobalt 272 boat on a lift.

Becky Gray, a senior global advisor with RSIR, said, “Everything you could possibly want is already here.”

The 0.3-acre property is at 10907 80th Place N.E. in Kirkland.

Stuart Silk Architects designed the house, which was built in 2006. It has a spa, media room, outdoor pool, wine cellar, boat house, 70 feet of moorage and security gates. Fitness equipment and audiovisual electronics are included.

The idea to sell everything came during a graduation celebration for the seller's daughter. She is the youngest of four children and on her way to college, leaving behind an empty nest.

“Toasting to our daughter's next journey made us contemplate our own,” said seller Brian Ross. “It was suddenly clear we no longer require more than 8,000 square feet and we wouldn't be downsizing with all these furnishings and water toys.”

Selling a package like this isn't that uncommon, according to Dean Jones, president and CEO of RSIR. He said the practice is typical with resort-type properties, especially when custom furniture was designed for the home.

You can check out the listing online at http://bit.ly/28K71R5. An open house is tomorrow from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Jones added that so far this year there have been eight waterfront home sales (excluding condos) from Yarrow Point to Juanita, compared with only one such sale last year. The median home price is now $3.5 million.
