Casual Kingly Country Living

Sitting on 17 acres with 4 of them perfectly cultivated and landscaped, the estate has many wonders in store, setting a new standard for elegant living. The main lawns are beautiful and covered with patios, lush green grass, fountains, and an indescribable private lake wrapped in a circular bulkhead with a Folly consisting of broken columns mimicking an ancient ruin. Welcome, to Laurel Manor.

Living in the glamour and sophistication of a large gated compound near the metropolis of Bellevue and Seattle can be a tough find, but find it, and you are living in a slice of paradise.

Without a view of anything other than the forest we created one of our own; achieving it to its fullest will involve the implementation of a staged development vis-à-vis a preordained master plan that will span decades worth of TLC.

A natural flow of water bisects the property to the northeast so as part of Phase One we created a lined and shallow lake. 'Pond' is probably more accurate of a descriptive word but the way the body of water rests and carefully manipulated behind an elongated island, accessible by bridge and row boat, its physical boundaries are deceptive.
