Welcome to the sixty-ninth post in the series
"Living Large in Small Spaces".
Built in 1926, the bungalow has recently been remodeled with an eye toward maintaining the architectural integrity of the original home. Throughout the space you will see "architectural pop outs [that] serve as window seats or garden windows."
The dining and living rooms were opened up, and the ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house.
This extended living space functions as dining, library, and intimate seating.
Open shelving instead of upper cabinets give the stream-lined kitchen a more spacious feeling. The back door is stunning.
A generous display shelf follows the kitchen perimeter, offering a place to showcase collectibles.
I'm captivated by this hallway.
Window seats get me every time, and this one in the bedroom is stunning. Jewelry as wall art is a brilliant idea.
The outdoor space is as charming as the interior. Love the shake shingle siding and brick pavers.
A "broken-down garage" was converted to a studio for the architect owner. The roof was raised three feet, and triple french doors were installed.
Now the light and bright space relates beautifully to the bungalow and courtyard.
Who wouldn't want to work in this gorgeous space?
Was I right? Do you love Montlake Bungalow?
