Danielson Grove - Kirkland, WA

Award-winning gardens and architectural design

Danielson Grove is an example of how the Cottage Company sets the stage for the perfect blend of privacy and community. Located on a quiet neighborhood street in Kirkland, Washington, this award-winning pocket neighborhood offers a mix of sixteen one-, two-, and three-bedroom compact homes. Each home is on a private lot, sensitively arranged around lush garden courtyards. Neighbors frequently socialize in the Commons building & common outdoor areas, or on their room-sized front porches.

In keeping with our philosophy of 'better rather than bigger' our simple, smart and sustainable homes are BuiltGreen 4-Star and Energy Star Certified. Additionally, Danielson Grove subscribes to King County's Natural Yard Care neighborhood program.

Danielson Grove was built under the City of Kirkland's Innovative Housing Demonstration Project. The prestigious American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2007 National Housing Award was awarded Ross Chapin Architects for Danielson Grove in the One/Two Family Production Homes category. Residential Architect magazine also awarded Ross Chapin Architects the Merit Award for Danielson Grove neighborhood in the Single-Family Production Housing/Detached category.

What homeowners say:

"Even though the space was the same as Nancy's previous home 1,000 square feet the architectural design made it feel much roomier." "The functional built-in storage area and shelves, and level of detail and finish were of a quality you usually find only in custom-built homes. We feel like we've moved up, even though we don't have a bigger home."
