A Jim Cutler-designed NW contemporary on Bainbridge for $750K

Northwest-y since 1980

Via Windermere

Settle in to 1,792 square feet of northwest contemporary style by Jim Cutler. The house was built in 1980, but looks like it could be new.

Wood siding, tongue-and-groove ceilings inside and out, and a metal roof are all familiar elements of the style. The sturdy posts and the wraparound decking are recognizable, too. But touches like the cutouts for the upper windows and a built-in solarium are hints of the customization.

Go inside to appreciate the matrix of windows that stand in place instead of large and featureless plates of glass. These windows not only add a unique touch—they’re easier to replace, too.

The entry is angled, bringing guests into a corner rather than some squared-off foyer. Vaulted ceilings benefit from those window cutouts there apparent from outside. Hello, light. Something that’s welcome during our drearier weather.

A partial wall separating the kitchen from the living area defines the boundary of the space while still allowing the cook to enjoy the party in the main room.

The $750,000 package has two houses. The main house has two bedrooms and one bathroom in a similar style to the rest of the house.

The second house is a 603 square-foot ADU, done in the same style and materials.

Wrapped around the houses is the 4.78-acre lot with enough room to mix a lawn; ornamental garden, fruit trees, a fenced garden, native landscaping, and a fire pit. Want to go for a walk? The property is adjacent to the Forest to Sky trail, just one in Bainbridge’s network of trails. Explore.
