Ballard mini-castle listed for $700K

Are those parapets?

A small, purple stucco house with terracotta roof panels Windermere

With just one story, this Sunset Hill bungalow may not look like a castle next to its neighbors, but something magical is going on with this 1,800 square foot home. The roof design around the entryway has the feel of a medieval bastion. Terracotta roof panels shade the windows as a nod to the stucco construction, although the stucco has been painted a whimsical shade of purple.

Inside, the characteristic 1925 Spanish Revival arched windows and wide passageways between the common areas give it a bold but airy feel. A breakfast nook in the kitchen is a cute touch. A stone fireplace with a thick mantle anchors the living room.

A backyard with a stone patio and an iron gazebo in the foreground, with the purple house and a tiered deck in the background.

A wrought iron railing separates the living area from an open staircase down to a sizeable, partially-finished basement.

A tiered back porch leads down to a backyard with plenty of grassy space to play, but also an ornate stone patio with an iron gazebo to complete the regal feeling. At just 10 blocks from Golden Gardens, beach access isn’t too far away, either.
