Conover Commons in Redmond, Washington, is an award-winning community filled with contemporary cottages. I fell in love with the neighborhood when it was featured in Cottage Living years ago. This house, known as Bella Rosa Cottage, is on the market for $674,000, and I was eager to take a closer look.
Gotta love a Dutch door.
I’m not crazy about the living room, but I think a warm paint color on the walls and different furniture would help.
The display niches in the kitchen are interesting. The island has a butcher-block top:
The house is only 1,700 square feet with a one-car detached garage.
The little breakfast nook with all of the windows and the vaulted ceiling is great. Not sure about the odd lighting and square table, though:
There’s a great little window seat on the landing, and I love the wood plank ceiling here, too.
One of the three bedrooms has a vaulted ceiling and a skylight, which I wouldn’t appreciate on Saturday mornings when the sun popped up in my face:
I think it has the potential to be a real charmer. How would you decorate it?
I think it would be fun to live in this neighborhood full of modern cottages.
