As with all of our pocket neighborhoods, the craftsman styling, colorful gardens, and placement around a shared lawn gives the Greenwood Avenue Cottages the appearance of having emerged from a bygone era when housing developments were designed as places where people with shared values gathered to become a real community. Each cottage, though similar, is unique. This fosters a personal connection, a bond of caring and identity. As with all of our communities, each household names their own cottage, and creates their own garden landscape and flowerbox garden. There are 24 exterior paint colors in the development.
The level of quality and attention to detail in these eight 2 or 3 bedroom, compact homes (all less than 1,000 square feet) is unparalleled outside of custom home development. Experts seem to agree: The Greenwood Avenue Cottages was awarded the 2002 AIA/Seattle Times Housing the Northwest Award, as well as the 2005 AIA National Housing Award. Read more about Greenwood Avenue Cottages in the fall 2004 issue of Cottage Living.
Greenwood Avenue Cottages was designed by Ross Chapin AIA, Ross Chapin Architects.
