Make Me Move?

Zillow has a feature called Make Me Move whereby homeowners can pretend-list their property just to get an idea as to its marketability. With this hot Seattle market, Tom’s retirement getting ever closer (but not quite close enough), and with Suncadia/Tumble Creek feeling more like home every time we visit our property there, I am soooo tempted to post our house as a Make Me Move!
Tom’s right – it’s too soon. But nobody can tell me not to post a pretend Make Me Move on my own blog, right? So let’s pretend, shall we?
How about something like, “Natural light abounds inside and the soothing sounds of water and nature abound outside in this fully remodeled Cottage Lake home.
A stone’s throw from the neighborhood elementary school and less than a mile from shopping, Cottage Lake Park, and the library, this Woodinville home is close to everything, yet feels like a secluded country retreat.
Sitting on just under an acre of land with an easily accessible three acre county greenbelt just past the backyard…
…there’s plenty of room for kids and animals to play while you relax on the south-facing deck (or in the hot tub!) just above the gorgeous water feature that includes a babbling brook and two small waterfalls, along with a patio and firepit perfect for summer marshmallow roasts.
A large pegboard-lined shop with electricity is every DIYer’s dream…
…while the garden shed offers even more outside storage.
Inside you’ll find a wide-open, fully remodeled kitchen with skylight, featuring a gas stove, stainless steel appliances, soft-close, full-extend drawers, and beautiful custom cherry cabinets with slide-outs.

The living area features 3/4” hardwood oak floors, huge cathedral windows and a riverrock (gas) fireplace with custom mantel and hearth.

Just down the hall, you’ll find the newly remodeled full bath with travertine tile, double sinks, large skylight, and frameless glass shower surround.
The master features a vaulted ceiling with two large skylights and an attached remodeled 3/4 bath.

You’ll find two additional bedrooms upstairs.
Downstairs, the large family room with custom river rock fireplace is perfect for family gatherings or for a cozy evening by the fire.

Also downstairs are two bedrooms (though one must officially be called a “multi-use room, as it has no closet)…

….and a 3/4 bathroom with laundry facilities, lots of storage, and separate entrance.

The two car garage has automatic openers, lots of shelving for storage, and a workshop area.
Woodinville offers top-rated schools, a strong community atmosphere, and over a hundred wineries, as well as breweries and distilleries for weekend outings with your out-of-town guests.”

(I don’t think you can have video on the Make Me Move listings, but if you could I’d include the one my brother made with his drone that I included in this post.)
So, whatdya think? Would this pique your interest? When the time is right, do you think we’d have a buyer?
