    Nice, but then you live somewhere where there’s snow!

    I like the layout–it seems pretty well-thought-out, although, like a LOT of homes it seems like no thought was given to the idea that most people have TVs.

      I agree that often TV watching in comfort is not designed into small living spaces but seeing as this one was built in 1932 I don’t believe that if was a consideration. Nice place for sure.

    It’s really cute, (and I realize that I am being nitpicky here), BUT, I would have painted the inside of the shelving unit in the laundry area before I took pictures. It appears to be dirty and possibly moldy. Other than that, it’s definitely something that I could live in, and perhaps bring in more functional furniture with storage built in.

    I agree about the dirty, possibly moldy shelf unit next to the laundry. But then, it give one a heads-up to look for mold elsewhere. This house seems to be pretty standard for a small house one could find in most any community. I’m not sure how expensive homes are in Olympia, but that price tag is enormous for this size home, for someone in the midwest. Olympia would have to be very special for me to pay that sum for this house.

      I’d just compare it to Zillow listings in the area to see if it’s competitive.

    • Trisha Schnatterly February 15, 2017, 12:50 pm

      Maggie, the price tag caught me by surprise as well. I think because of the location, which is down town and within walking distance to the capital the price is quite elevated. No, it would not be something I would invest in as I could live 5 miles from there in the same home for much less.

    Nice little place. Do agree with Sgmaps about the laundry room. Also, noticed the only way to get to the bedroom is you have to go outside, around the house, and then enter through a side door to the bedroom. Really cumbersome to do if you have any rain in that area or large amounts of snow on the ground. That may be the reason they have it for sale.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee February 14, 2017, 7:18 am

      Hmmm I’m not seeing the same thing? I just see another exit off the bedroom but I am pretty sure you can enter it from the rest of the house.

    In 1932, when this was built, most people didn’t have TVs.

    Also, this is actually a good price for Oly. Anything on the I-5 corridor is going to cost a LOT more than the eastern side of the state, or in the midwest.

    And you can count on rain. Lots of rain. Not always snow, but always rain.

    Great cottage home, but unfortunately it’s located once again in the Pacific North West region, in the great state of Washington….! You folks out in the Pacific North West should soon all be living in a tiny houses at the rate you have been cranking them out ..

  • ROSEE February 14, 2017, 10:14 am

    What a lovely little house. There is so much room and has a lot of light. (my plants would love that)! Well thought layout.
