This Olympia, Washington home was built to be close to downtown Olympia and accommodate the present active lifestyle of its occupants while also anticipating the couple's needs as they grow older. As architect Tessa Smith notes in Downsize, "a home design that recognizes its inhabitants will age and that age will affect mobility, means that they can enjoy their home for longer, not be angry at the difficulties and limitations." The home is one-level open plan with door frames wide enough to eventually accommodate wheelchairs if necessary. The advantage of building a small home is how intentional owners become in making sure the space functions well for their needs now and in the future.
This home's quaint and charming exterior offers a great first impression. Accented with white trim and the stand out feature of a bright red door, this home has excellent curb appeal accented by landscaping that adds dimension and visual allure.
This Frank Lloyd Wright inspired house is framed by the organic landscape and The Kenneth Cobonpue Yoda Easy Chairs in Bright Red serve up both style and comfort. When evening falls, recessed lights illuminate the front steps and exterior.
Boost curb appeal! There’s much ado about curb appeal in the real estate world with good reason — many potential buyers make a first drive-by trip to see your home and decide then and there whether attending the open house is even worth a visit. This curb appeal is vibrant and filled with year-round color from beautifully diverse foliage. There is always something new blooming each season!
