Property Description

There are not enough words that aptly describe Rhodesleigh. The home is rich in history and detailing from an era of when life was different.

The home was built in memory of Edward Rhodes who served and paid the ultimate sacrifice in World War I. To this day, to think that we are able to continue the Rhodes tribute to a fallen hero is amazing. Henry Rhodes and the Rhodes brothers were the founders of the Rhodes department store legacy. Rhodesleigh served as their country estate, in fact "leigh" implies onwership or control of the land. Henry Rhodes' recollection of the creation of Rhodesleigh is captured in his memoirs and is referenced in the document section of this site.

The home is nestled on the shores of Lake Steilacoom. Grand in scale yet intimate, making the home perfect for entertaining the largest of gatherings, weddings,retreats or dinner for two. Details such as the copper gutters, flashing, embossed emblems and intricate artisan woodwork make you feel like you are living in a museum quality piece of art.

The foyer with original detailing, wood paneling and even "state of the art" phone booth, all flow to the outdoor terrace. A formal dining is served by a convenient butlery and with doors closed, offers an intimate lakeside dinner setting or doors open, serves buffet space for several hundred.

Many of bedrooms are suites in and of themselves with sitting rooms and en suites. The master bedroom is connected to a lakeside owners office with fireplace and views of the lake.

Situated on the shores of Lake Steilacoom, Rhodesleigh is conveniently serviced by Interstate 5, SeaTac Airport and the Narrows Airport for private aircraft.
