A beautiful waterfront estate nestled on Lake Sammamish at 1836 W. Lake Sammamish Pkwy S.E. in Bellevue has been the dream home for Kevin and Judy Cosens since they had it built in 2002. Priced at $4.73 million, it is listed with Windermere Brokers John Kritsonis and Karl Lindor. Kevin Cosens was the CEO of medical device maker RF Surgical Systems, which was acquired by Medtronic in 2015. Judy has been a stay at home mom. Daughter Sloan is now an adult.
“We had all those great years on West Lake Sammamish,” says Kevin. “It was a great place to live and raise our daughter. If you like sports and the water, you want to raise your kids on Lake Sammamish. It’s like glass in the mornings, and you’re literally on the water. Wake-boarding, skiing surfing, it’s all about being on the water.”
This pristine and elegant home has four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a huge media room, 94 feet of waterfront with private dock, and lifts for boat and jet skis, balcony, large covered outdoor living space, hot-tub, manicured grounds, theater, gym, wine cellar, wet bar and more.
“What sets this apart is the extreme privacy all the way out to the waters edge. And it is timeless elegance in the architecture and design. The two story entry with custom metal stair railing and sweeping spiral staircase with slab travertine treads is a huge wow,” says Broker Karl Lindor.
Kevin and Judy spend half their time in California now but they will miss this place and their favorite parts of it. Kevin especially enjoys the huge media room upstairs with the pool table. “We love to go up there and watch movies as a family, and spend quality time, watching sporting and special events. It’s our gathering place,” he says. Sloan loved the room in the basement, with its pinball machines, ping pong table and big screen TV where she and her friends could play video games. And they love the kitchen and the area right outside of it – a covered area for cooking, fireplace and hot-tub. “Fun to have friends over, too,” Kevin says.
One little known fact that he didn’t even realize for the first four years was that right across the road from the house is a 35 acre park. “It’s a wilderness right across from us in the middle of Bellevue, full of hiking trails. I can go for great six-to-eight mile hikes and you think you’re over in the Olympic Peninsula,” he says.
