Shingled Cottage, Totally Zen

Sometimes, less really is more, isn’t it? Especially in our overwrought and booming, busy city.

This shingled cottage in the Arboretum proves the point perfectly. A refuge, a sanctuary, a simple place to call home.

Sited above the road amidst tranquil Japanese-inspired gardens.


Inside, high-quality, high-design features and finishes abound.


A covered back porch is the right place for contemplation.


At the back of the property stands a heated studio/office. Lake and mountain views are especially beautiful from here.


Lower level provides additional workspace and storage, with laundry room and half-bath.

Only one bedroom, but this home lives large!

1061 25th Ave East, Seattle, 98112. Offered at $750,000. Originally built in 1908 but completely redone by designer/artist owners. One bedroom, one and one-half baths. 1340 interior feet on a 4320 square foot lot. Every detail thoughtfully chosen for design and quality. All systems new. Metal roof will last a lifetime. Well-located for in-city living, walkability, and proximity to University of Washington.
