Reminiscent of a seaside cottage, this home will charm your socks off! Boldly colored, we dare its visitors not to smile and feel the cheeriness that the home conveys.
Originally built in 1929 as a weekend cabin, this desirable one level home has been re-envisioned over the years, but still retains the charm of the era. You will love the beauty of the fir floors that grace the original part of the home. The generous living room enjoys a gas fireplace, large picture windows and pleasant views of Puget Sound.
Gathering with friends is easy here. The large, updated kitchen invites collaboration. Chefs of all levels will appreciate the timeless look of white cabinets, high-end appliances and 5 burner gas range. Spending time at the sink you will enjoy garden views and snippets of Puget Sound. The spacious dining room off the kitchen will easy accommodate a larger table and is perfect for hosting larger sit-down meals with friends. French doors lead to the large wrap around deck for easy barbecuing year-round.
The bedroom wing features a desirable layout with three bedrooms and two updated baths. The primary bedroom enjoys garden views and attached 3/4 bath with extra storage and laundry. The other two bedrooms are good sized and all have hardwood floors. A nearby updated full bath services the rest of the house. We love the charm of the vintage bath sign that hangs above the door.
You will love the charm of the detached studio. This is the perfect creative space or private home office. The 400 sq/ft studio features an abundance of storage and a wall of windows taking in beautiful and inspiring views of the garden.
Every once in a while, you see a home that has something truly special about it. Something that stops you in your tracks and makes you say “wow”. For this home, the large wrap around deck and surrounding gardens are showstoppers! The colorful garden feels like a magical place and features several places to gather with friends or enjoy peaceful solitude. You may choose to enjoy a siesta on the front hammock or make smores with friends around the fire pit area. There is even a private meditation garden on the east side of the studio for quiet contemplation. The spacious back deck features a pergola that stays. This is the spot to hang out on sunny afternoons.
The home has been loved and well-maintained over the years and is ready for its next chapter. Please check out the home’s documents below. Here you will find the home inspection report including the sewer inspection and other pertinent documents.

Not far from this home is Dunn Gardens. This is a privately owned 7.5-acre property composed of the remaining acreage of the estate of Arthur G. Dunn Sr., who made his fortune in the fish cannery business. Dunn bought the property in 1914 as a summer get-a-way for his family, and contracted the landscaping to the Olmsted Brothers. Upon his death, the property was inherited by his children. His son Edward B. Dunn provided for the care of his share of the estate in his will. A trust was created two years after his death to oversee the entire property. Dunn Gardens were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 15, 1994, and are open for special public events and docent-led guided tours April through July, and from September through October.
