Brentwood Beach Cottages - Lake Forest Park, WA

Casual contemporary living in a pristine Puget Sound waterfront setting.

The intimate, two-home Brentwood Beach Cottage community is nestled in the private waterfront community of Sheridan Beach, in Lake Forest Park Washington, at the northwestern edge of Seattle’s Lake Washington. These striking, high-design homes advance The Cottage Company’s philosophy of ‘better, rather than bigger’, community focused living, and offer innovative, high efficiency, simple and sustainable designs. Built to rigorous Built Green 4-Star certification, the homes perform at a minimum 20% energy cost savings as compared to a standard new home built to Washington State’s energy code requirements.

The Farmhouse Modern custom architectural design incorporates vaulted ceilings, large windows, light-filled spaces, interior wood paneling and a high level of detail throughout. Each three-bedroom, 2 baths plus 400 square foot studio apartment, Brentwood Beach Cottage is designed to enable single level living with main floor ensuite master and full laundry room. Two additional vaulted ceiling bedrooms and a full bath are upstairs. In addition, Brentwood Beach Cottages provides multigenerational and flexible housing options with a 400 square foot studio apartment that includes ¾ bath, kitchenette and private entrance with parking located over the attached 2 car garage.

Brentwood Beach Cottages is located on a dead-end street less than a 5-minute walk from Lake Forest Park’s town center amenities and Sunday farmers market. The community is served by bus rapid transit to the University of Washington and downtown Seattle’s urban center for a quick work commute. Brentwood Beach is located in the Sheridan Beach waterfront community bordered by the Burke Gilman Trail, encouraging an active, walkable lifestyle and provides easy access to outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, boating and swimming. The cottage homes have deeded rights to the nearby Lake Forest Park Civic Club with swimming beach, dock, boat ramp and community building for family activities plus a park and play area.

Our Brentwood Beach Cottages community was designed by Sean Parker AIA and Charles Wenzlau, Wenzlau Architects AIA.

Cottage homes in this community were completed and sold out in 2018. Original Prices were $994,500 and $998,000.  The most recent resale closed in December 2021 at $1,450,000.
