Redmond, WA 98052


The Ray Meadows neighborhood of Redmond is backed by a greenbelt, offering homeowners a sublime living experience filled with tranquility and privacy.

This past season, Joe Klarman and Erik Zaugg sold this designer home, but its many unique features make it well worth taking a look.

Built in 2018, this stunning home served as the original model home for the community. Since then, many upgrades have been made with meticulous care, transforming its character.

Basic Home Description

This modern home features 2,790 square feet of living space. The floor plan includes 3 bedrooms with a primary suite and 3 bathrooms. There is also a loft living area and a versatile office that may serve as a 4th bedroom.

Ceilings soar to 10 feet complemented by 8-foot-high doorways. The entire home speaks of good living and open, light-filled spaces. The loving owners made many innovative upgrades, some of which are described further below.

Local Area

Despite the privacy and serene environment, the home is just minutes away from Totem Lake. The great shopping and convenience options there include Whole Foods, Evergreen Health Medical Center, and restaurants. Also enjoy a PCC and many other shops within walking distance, as well as Juel Park. For additional outdoor recreation, check out 60 Acres Park (lacrosse, soccer, Frisbee golf), Sammamish Valley, and other parks.

Kirkland is known, of course, for its wineries, and Chateau Ste. Michelle, Mark Ryan, and JM Cellars are great places for wine-lovers to start.
