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.

Looking Down On Creation From The Top Of The World


Modern houses are my favorite kind these days. I just love the straight and the clean of them. This one in particular is stunningly sleek throughout.


And the views from every level are spectacular. By the time my touring sidekick and I got to the top floor, we were so inspired by them, we broke out in song. With so many hard surfaces, the acoustics are fantastic here. I’m pretty sure I was channeling Karen Carpenter to his Richard Carpenter, our voices perfectly harmonizing over the Eucalyptus floors (I’m not sure I’ve seen Eucalyptus floors before; these are gorgeous).


1056 24th Avenue East, Seattle, in the Arboretum neighborhood. Offered at $1,249,000. Built by Playhouse Design. Three bedrooms, two and one-half baths, media room. 2921 interior feet on a 4652 square foot lot. Attached two car garage. Tucked away off the beaten path, but located in the heart of Seattle where its cutting edge style fits very nicely.
