Both houses are full of whimsy

Near the western shore of Vashon Island, this playful Craftsman cottage sits on more than an acre with plenty to explore on the grounds, like a large plot of raised beds, fruit trees, and even stables. But the house itself is an adorable home base to what’s going on around it: leaded glass, archways, French doors, and even a turret.

The floorplan is a comfortable 1,300 square feet—largely on one story, but with one of the two bedrooms perched above in a finished attic. The floorplan prioritizes common areas, with an airy dining room, a large kitchen, and even a small bonus room tucked in a turret off the back porch.

While the main house is cute, nobody would blame you for just opting to live in the guest house. The octagonal cabin, complete with wraparound porch, is tucked in the woods down a trail from the cottage. The interior is lined with wood-plank walls, including a large sleeping loft with chevron wood paneling and gemstone-shaped skylights.

16120 Crescent Drive SW is listed for $675,000 through Windermere.
