Renovated 1905 craftsman cottage lists for $399K

Just because it's small, doesn't mean it can't be bold; but, aren't those Broncos colors?

It's bright blue and hard to miss. That's this tiny, 780 square foot Craftsman cottage in Dunlap. Just because it's small, doesn't mean it can't be bold.

In the last hundred years or so, there have probably been some upgrades to this classic tiny house, but the basics remain. Half the front is dedicated a picture window that is common now, but may have been many smaller windows then. The other half is used for a covered porch that does more than just protect the door, just enough room for relaxing, or staying dry while you fumble for your keys.

It is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath house with a listing price of $398,500. A claw foot tub is a reminder of another era. Upgrades are more apparent in the kitchen where stainless steel appliances and bright white walls are much more modern. Some of the classic ambiance remains in the rooms that kept the hardwood flooring. There's even enough room for a nook that looks into the backyard.

With 6,011 square feet to work with, and a fence to contain it, the backyard is a handy place for gardens, kids, and pets. Make your own selection from that list, or none of the above. There's also a garage workshop that could also be boat storage. Lake Washington is close enough to make that commute short. They even claim enough room for an ADU, which is one of the advantages of small houses - they leave enough land for someone else to live on.

One decorating curiosity. They have a Seahawks sign in the laundry, but the blue of the exterior and the orange of the door look suspiciously like Broncos colors. Indecision? Divided household, or a very tolerant one?
