Indoors: The low picket fence in front has a gate that swings open to a manicured yard.

The front door, framed by a covered porch, opens into a living room with Douglas fir floors, street-facing windows, a staircase up to a lofted family room and a brick fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves.

This space flows into a kitchen with custom-designed cabinetry, a center island with a Douglas fir counter, and a glass door that opens to the yard.

All three bedrooms are off a corridor extending from the back of the kitchen. The primary bedroom has vaulted wood ceilings and an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. The bedroom next door is used as a home office; the third bedroom, at the back of the house, has a window seat and built-in shelves. They share the bathroom across the hall, which has a combined tub and shower tiled in white and a bright red storage cabinet.
