For When You Want a Little Miami With Your Ballard


With a bit of architecture and horticulture, you can turn a bit of Ballard into a bit of Miami. The house is from 1910. The landscaping has been growing for years. The paint job, well, maybe that's new. For $575,000 there's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2,140 square foot house in Ballard that looks like it belongs on South Beach, or maybe as a set from Miami Vice. There should be pink flamingos, though maybe a great blue heron will stand in for a while. There are palms instead of cedars. But the slugs probably haven't been displaced by geckos. Inside continues the theme with pastels, glass blocks, and a fashion sense that has little to do with Ballard's Scandinavian heritage. Why be beige when you can be colorful?
