Seattle’s June housing market included everything from tiny houses and houseboats to massive lodges in the mountains. Pick and choose, and know there’s always more to discover.
A 200-square-foot tiny house on wheels was for sale in Port Townsend with enough special features to make it worth a trip—or maybe it can take itself on tour. Use those wheels. The $67,750 price covers the extras like a dormer window, two skylights, and an octagonal accent window. Alternating bands of wood make the tub a showpiece. A special treat for pet owners is a hidden and vented litter box.
On more than 17,000 square feet of field and forest affectionately dubbed “Camp Whidbey,” this 484-square-foot cabin in Freeland is a home base for outdoor adventuring. Add in the vintage Spartan Royal Manor trailer complete with vintage appliances for extra-cute campouts. The land with the cabin and all the outdoor fixings is listed for $169,000. Enjoy a vintage kitchen in the trailer decked out in robin-egg blue.
This shingled, two-story houseboat just a few blocks up from Gasworks Park in Wallingford has a little something for all seasons. The size is also a little more boat than house—its footprint is just 34 by 15 feet. It retains that “boat” side of things in some ways, though, like a ladder leading to the second floor—and the views that you only get from being right on the water. All that comes out to $499,000 (plus $660 slip moorage.)
Architect Ralph Anderson is a local icon, both as “the father of Pioneer Square”. His residential work is known for natural exteriors that give way to soaring ceilings and far-reaching windows. The centerpiece—appropriately for the home’s name, “Glass Cathedral”—is a box of thin windows that reach the full height of a living area’s lofted areas. A seven-figure price tag is almost inevitable—in this case, it’s $1.6 million.
This $2,285,000 property is a celebration of wood from the Doug fir used inside to the yellow cedar beams and red cedar shingles used outside. Natural materials rule. Granite counters may be common, but the ones in this kitchen look like pieces of art. With 7,168 square feet there’s room for a billiards room, indoor pool, and a theater with stage. Want something grander? Sit outside on the 3.1 acre lot facing the mountains.
