Why buy one house when you can buy three—assuming a tree house counts? That’s the package available for $1,150,000 in Fall City.
The main house is a mix of ornate and formal with Northwest minimal rooms. Possibly the most elaborate room is the formal dining room. A coved ceiling, wall paper inset above and around the room, and a chair rail and wood paneling below create a space that is meant for meals that include several courses and the right silverware, not just pizza boxes.
The formal living room features cathedral ceilings with a rich paint scheme. The centerpiece is a modern gas fireplace set in a traditional mantel.
The main room in most modern houses is the great room, the kitchen and family room made into one, just like here. With the cook top and a sink set into a center island, the cook can keep busy while being part of the activity in the rest of the room. Be ready for some traffic, though. It looks just right for someone small doing lots of laps.
One last bit of elegance to mention in the main house is the master bath. Dual sinks, and a shower big enough for two are examples of the updates they’ve done throughout the baths.
When there’s more than one building it can be tough keeping track of the room count. It is listed as having three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two three-quarter bathrooms, and a half bathroom, and 4,110 square feet. There’s also a 756 square-foot guest cottage with a separate kitchen and bathroom. Check to see if it has one of the bedrooms or counts as its own.
There’s room for so much because the property covers 8.7 acres. Lots of trees creates the perfect opportunity for a tree house—in this case, with electricity and everything. In Seattle, it might be mistaken as an ADU, but here it is probably best as a play room for the kids or a retreat for the adults. Some negotiation within the family may be required.
