The entrance faces a wall of windows with a glass door opening onto the deck. It overlooks the creek, with its community dock. To the left, the living room also features a wall of windows with glass doors opening onto the deck and the .74 acre lot beyond. This room boasts a fireplace, a built-in bookcase and hardwood floors that unify this main story.

Across the hall from the parlor, the kitchen provides walls of expansive windows, beneath its slanted skylit ceiling. A granite counter divides the kitchen from the front dining room, where a wall of windows stands beside a dramatic open stairway. The main floor also provides a powder room and a path to the two-car garage and a separate apartment, which includes a bedroom, bath and kitchenette.

The second-story hardwood landing features yet another expansive water view. The master bedroom overlooks the creek, through another wall of windows beneath a slanted ceiling. The master bath boasts a whirlpool tub, separate shower and dual vanities. Three other bedrooms share an additional full bath, while each provides its own impressive view.

The schools are Woodley Hills Elementary, Whitman Middle and Mount Vernon High.
