The Ericksen Cottages are located on picturesque Bainbridge Island in Winslow, just a quick few block walk from the ferry to downtown Seattle. This compact and connected walkable community is the perfect choice for small households who seek a peaceful retreat in the lively walkable community of Winslow and the convenience of quick access to downtown Seattle's urban center. Like all of our pocket neighborhoods, it's the perfect marriage of a privacy and community, sustainability and stylish design.
Eleven two- or three-bedroom cottages feature their own private yards surrounded by a low fence, clustered around a riotously designed garden courtyard. Neighbors frequently connect by a stroll through the peaceful commons area gardens, gathering in the Commons building or a chance meeting at the mailbox. All cottages include a room-sized covered porch, front porch flower boxes, private yards, freestanding gas fireplaces, regional hardwood floors and cabinets, bay windows, vaulted ceilings, wood paneling, classic details, built-ins, great light, character and charm.
Ericksen Cottages was designed by Charles Wenzlau AIA, Wenzlau Architects.
