This Diamond Lake, Washington property does the seemingly impossible - combining a completely secluded home with over 5,000square feet of commercial space on the main access to Diamond Lake, Washington.

The landscaping does the trick.

Commercial buildings, including a 2-story showroom, are located just off busy South Shore Road. Behind the well graveled parking lot, and perched on a small rise, the house is neatly surrounded and protected by 250 tons of extensive rock work and landscaping. # ponds ,creek, and 2 waterfalls attract your attention as you come up the massive rock stair case. 200 amp power and fiber optic are at this home

Once in the yard,
residents can forget activity going on in their other buildings and concentrate on enjoying the well-equipped BBQ gazebo with 30 amps of 220 power installed, the greens-quality lawns, the garden area and greenhouse, and the occasional visit from local wildlife.

While starting a new business or relocating an existing business can be a nightmare of red tape in most locations, the business-friendly zoning at Diamond Lake means you can bring the business you want without a hassle.

The fact that another 3 1/2 adjoining acres are available here opens up the possibilities even more. Any business you can imagine that would serve local residents and/or summer visitors to the area will fit perfectly, because the majority of residents and visitors all use South shore road. You couldn't ask for better exposure.

Of course, commercial activity is not required. This is also the perfect spot to "Retire with toys." Can you imagine how many toys you could store and play with in 5,000 square feet?

The insulated doors and bays and commercial shelving installed make these units year around friendly Also this building has 200 amp power and fiber optec installed, while the huge garden shed affords room for every garden tool/toy your resident gardener can buy.

Why not combine uses? We operate an antique store in the showroom on week-ends during summer months - an enterprise you might wish to continue, as it is quite exciting with lots of friendly customers. Using the showroom still leaves plenty of room for toys in the extensive shops and storage buildings.

Located only about 6 miles from Newport, Washington, shopping for basics is quick and easy - while Spokane, Washington offers easy access to cultural events, medical centers, and more extensive shopping.

For ski enthusiasts - you'll be centrally located - only about an hour from Schweitzer, Mount Spokane, and 49 Degrees North.

One more thing...!

I'll look at partial trades - for attractive land, a smaller home, or maybe even a nice motor home. Let me know what you've got and I'll let you know if I need it!

DESCRIPTIONS & PICTURES (click to enlarge)
Front Entry

Approaching this Diamond Lake home is a treat for the senses - a 5' wide natural stone staircase takes you through extensive perennial plantings, with different flowers blooming throughout the season to please both sight and smell.

Soothing sound is provided by the waterfall which feeds three terraced ponds just outside your door.

Extensive log and rock work attest to the loving care that went into creating a peaceful, private haven.

Kitchen Size: 12 X 15 Floor: Main

This is a cook's kitchen - with all the amenities that anyone could ask for. The counter tops and floor are slate, so no worries about burns or spills. The numerous cabinetswere built with ease of use in mind. Where you might expect shelving, you'll find full extension pull-outs; the upper cabinets are 42" tall to allow for extra storage; track lighting in the ceiling and counter lighting built into the upper cabinets mean your work will always be well illuminated. A pull-down rack holds your cookbook, and the center island rolls, to afford extra counter space wherever you desire.

The kitchen range includes a BBQ grill, so we installed a 400 CF exhaust fan to carry grilling odors and smoke out and away.

Ceiling racks mean you can hang your prettiest pots for display, while leaded glass doors in the upper corner cabinets add an extra decorator touch.

The eating bar separates kitchen and living room, so guests can visit and still stay out of the cook's way. However, with this much counter space, this Diamond Lake kitchen will welcome two cooks.

Sun Room Size: 12 X 20 Floor: Main

You'll appreciate every change in the seasons from this room's many windows.

While the windows in the main part of the house are Anderson, the sun room windows are Vinyl Therm Low E Argon Heat Mirrors with an evergreen tint. What that means to you is a 20 degree difference in heat transfer.

Outdoor lighting above the windows means you can even watch the snow fall at midnight if you choose.

The 42" tall bar separates the sitting area from the informal dining area - a great place to sip a cool one while you and friends argue over a big game - notice the built-in TV cabinet in the corner.

Have houseguests? No one needs to bother the cook while they socialize before dinner, because this sunroom comes equipped with it's own mini-refrigerator, microwave oven, and cabinet with sink.

Notice the cabinets both on the wall and below the ceiling high windows - these are but some of the 92 cabinets to be found throughout this Diamond Lake home.

Beyond the dining area you'll find what may turn into the most popular spot in the house - the redwood hot tub room. It too has huge windows, so while you're out of the elements, you'll feel almost like you're outdoors.

BBQ Gazebo Size: 10 X 10 Floor: main

This BBQ gazebo will be your favorite cooking spot all summer long!

The built-in BBQ is large enough to let you serve a crowd of hungry Diamond Lake neighbors, the built in stainless steel bar sink has 3 compartments to hold bottles, and the storage (behind those antique stove doors) means you don't have to take everything back in the house when you're finished.

A 2-burner gas cooktop sits alongside the BBQ to keep the coffee warm or to boil the corn on the cob.

Just like the indoor kitchen - counter tops are slate.

That glow you see at night comes from a beautiful Mexican-style hammered wrought-iron chandelier inset with gold colored glass - and of course the other glow comes from the bonfire in your brick fire pit.

Back Yard

Extensive landscaping does more than shield this Diamond Lake home from the commercial end of the property - it affords a peaceful haven where residents can fully enjoy the outdoors.

Enjoy lunch on the exposed aggregate picnic table, then practice your putting on this greens-quality lawn, or turn your green thumb toward tending the myriad of flowers or your vegetable garden.

Notice at the end of the lawn - the huge garden shed designed to hold all the toys and tools your heart desires.

The lawns,landscaped areas and garden are, of course, served by a sprinkler system.


The 8 X 16 Greenhouse is perfect for starting tomatoes and other vegetables and flowers that need a head start on Spring.

Perennial flowers abound, and those who prefer home grown produce will delight in the bounty of gooseberries, raspberries, strawberries, apples, pie cherries, sweet cherries, and even aspargus.

The well cultivated garden spot awaits your green thumb and your choice of annual veggies.

Upstairs Bath

The Upstairs Bath Offers a 5'double shower. The counter top, the wall behind the toilet, and wall next to the linen closet are ceramic tile, while the floor is carpeted.

Faucets and other hardware are gold-tone and vanity faucet handles are of onyx.

A Bay Window over the sink will allow you to enjoy the panoramic view, while the location still affords perfect privacy.

The vanity sink is china, the toilet is a one-piece low profile unit for ease of care.

Behind the mirrored bi-fold doors you'll find the ultimate in bathroom storage: a 6'wide linen closet!

View from the air

The view from the air shows how the residence is situated away from road noise and the commercial area - as well as the reason why local deer are occasional visitors.

Trees abound!Note the photo with lines drawn - these show the main 1.5 Acre site, and how the adjoining available lots are situated around it.

You could construct homes for extended family or rental use and still maintain your privacy - or if your business idea calls for later expansion, you'd have an easy time installing more commercial buildings on these level lots.

Commercial Buildings Size: 5200 s.f. +
