Tiny Craftsman tucked away in Dunlap asks $329K

A tiny Craftsman by the lake with a garden and a six-burner stove means a lot is going on inside a small space

Only a couple of blocks from Lake Washington means easy access to a very large aquatic playground. That may be more fun in the summer and more peaceful in the winter. A good site for a 1924 Craftsman in Dunlap that is listed at $329,000.

With 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, there's a surprising amount of room left over in this 850 square foot house. They even managed to fit in a 6 burner stove. With more room for cooking outside this is a place for casual multi-course dinner parties.

The exterior is a distinctive dark blue with white trim and a red door, very patriotic. Inside, the emphasis is on stone and tile for counters and floors. In the bathroom, however, the wainscoting and claw foot tub are reminders of the house's heritage, a place that has seen a lot of changes in almost one hundred years.

Something that has always been in style is gardening, and the 6,621 square foot lot is already fenced and equipped with raised beds. Much of the back has been devoted to gravel and decking, the better for grilling and entertaining. That also means less to mow, and fewer places to grow; but you can leave it as is, or bring in some more dirt. A fire pit provides opportunities to sit and enjoy, or roast a bit - but check the burn bans before you light up.

No one element makes the house and the property, but the combination is popular package that may not be on the market long. Let's see if it goes to pending before this post hits the web.
