Open House Date and Time: Saturday, January 27, 10AM – 4PM
23419 SE 289th St.
Black Diamond, WA 98010
Favorite Restaurant(s) in the Area: The Fire Creek Grill at Druid’s Glen Golf Club for their daily dinner specials. The best time to go is when it’s warm enough to get an outside table only 30 yards from the 18th green.
Although the Black Diamond Bakery is famous for their breakfasts, we prefer the Testy Chef in Maple Valley. The intimate “greasy spoon” atmosphere and the great food just keep us coming back.
Favorite Places to Go: If you’re a boater, you’re lucky to be only a few blocks from Lake Sawyer. Lake Sawyer is the fourth largest lake in King County. Public access is provided at the King County Lake Sawyer Park on the northwest side of the lake, and the newly acquired County Park in the southern part of the lake.
If you’re a golfer, Greenbrier is within 5 minutes of three golf courses: Druid’s Glen, Elk Run and Lake Wilderness, and Washington National is only 10 minutes away.
If you’re a mountain biker, there is an extensive trail system for bikes just down the street.
If you’re a skier, Crystal Mountain is a 45 minute drive.
Best Features of the Home: There are three things that set this home and property this apart from most:
First, and most important to us, is the large flat and useable yard. Whether you have kids, dogs or love trees and plants (or all of the above), the fully fenced back yard is the place to be.
Second is the fact that this is a very sunny area. After living in the woods on Tiger Mountain, the sun and openness of this home has really brightened our attitude.
Third is the unique knotty pine and stone finish work. It provides a cabin-like atmosphere and sets the home apart from any other.
Favorite Room: It has to be the Family Room. There’s nothing better than the gas fireplace (turns on at the flip of a switch) on a cool night. The whole kitchen, breakfast area and family are open and flow together, so really, it’s one large room where we spent most of our time.
What’s in the Neighborhood That Makes it a Good Place to Live: The Greenbrier neighborhood provides a safe and close-knit environment to raise a family. Yet unlike some of those “row house” developments, the lots in Greenbrier are large enough to ensure privacy. It’s a great feeling to be able to give your neighbor your house key and know that people are watching out for your home when you’re away.
What Will You Miss the Most: We will miss the friendships and the community environment of Greenbrier, breakfast at the Testy Chef, working in the yard on a sunny day, the membership at Druid’s Glen Golf Club and the short drive to Crystal Mountain.
