This four bedroom beach house in Washington’s South Sound is all about the joys of growing up near the water’s edge during summer’s freedom from school! The owner’s childhood was spent on this site in a small cabin with her parents and siblings. Now married and with children of her own, it was time to savor those childhood memories and create new ones in a house designed for generations to come.
At 3,200 square feet including a whimsical Crow’s Nest, this new summer cabin is much larger than the original but it’s still all about family and fun. Above the 660 square foot water toys-filled garage, there is a 500 square foot bunk room for visiting friends and family which is connected to the main house by an upper bridge where built-in storage frames a window seat overlooking the property.
Throughout the house are playful details recalling the waterfront locale including paddles integrated into the stair railing system, engineered flooring with a weathered look, marine cleats as hardware, a boardwalk to the main entry and a nautical lighting package.
