The Shumway in Kirkland

August 19, 2008

In the heart of downtown Kirkland steps from shops, restaurants and the hustle and bustle is a well kept secret.  Driving by on Lake Washington Blvd. a glimpse of an entry gate, a tranquil waterfall, and a bronze statue of an Indian woman are the only indicators that this beautiful 5 acre condominium site exists.   Located across the street from David E. Brink lake front park The Shumway for those who know is a coveted _MG_9379place to call home.  

A rich history proceeds The Shumway condominiums.  In 1905 a family of 8 brothers and sisters purchased the original 7 acre site .  Led by Elizabeth Shumway it appears that she persuaded her siblings into contributing $5,000 to build a home that would become known as the Shumway Mansion.  The Mansion itself has been moved to Juanita and is now a bed and breakfast and reception center.

The Shumway is a secure gated community of 74 homes.  Currently there are only 4 homes on the market.  Luxury details and flexible floor plans make each home unique.    At $499,950 Unit E101 is a fabulous value.   This is the least expensive unit in the project.  A spacious 1 bedroom, 2 bath home with over 1,300 sq. ft. of living space.
