Whenever an artist lives in a space, that space is transformed into another kind of canvas. In this pretty house, for example, the artist’s palette extends to every detail.
A magnificent setting overlooking Lake Washington and across the street from Olmstead designed Frink Park in Leschi makes it even better.
Built in 1905 and redesigned and rebuilt in 2005, the kitchen and baths are thoughtfully modern but hark back to an era, too.
Even the guest apartment in the lower level is exquisite in its detail.
What a find. I keep thinking about it. How has no one snatched it up?
The artist in residence is a fiber artist, and if you visit you will see her loom and her textiles here and there throughout the property. It makes one’s heart beat a little faster if one is a crafter like me.
