The 3-BR, 2.5 bath house at 2503 Berentson asking $549K in Anacortes looks unassuming enough. A nice suburban home in a nice community. Word to the wise, though. If you plan on considering it as your next family home, do not bring your children with you unless you plan on buying it. Because once they see the hobbit playhouse out back, you're done.
Yes, that's a tiny hobbit hangout in the backyard. Shame we can't see inside but we get the gist. Clearly the parents who live here put in the effort to keep their children entertained. Just look at the kid's rooms, a Pixar's Cars-themed hangout and a Seussical play-land for the other. A lot of those accessories will go but the paint remains.
There's an adult play area included in the house as well but you'll have to head to the garage for that. The very sizable carport comes complete with a Porsche-themed bar for when you want to drink alcohol in close proximity to power tools.
Clearly, the owners have invested in living a fun lifestyle. Aside from all of the above the backyard is made for weekends spent sitting around the stone fire pit or relaxing in the hot tub. Come to think of it, maybe no one should come see this place without intending to buy it. Not sure you'll be able to walk away.
