961 Sq. Ft. Beltane Cottage at Greenwood Avenue Cottages

This is a beautiful cottage in Washington state called the Beltane Cottage.

Take a long stone pathway through surrounding gardens and you’ll find yourself at the entrance to this light orange cottage and it’s cranberry red door. There’s a small porch by the front door made of rustic wood for sitting and enjoying the outdoors. The 961 square feet cottage includes a one car garage and the house is one of the Greenwood Avenue Cottages, so you’ll be surrounded by other beautiful homes and wonderful landscaping.

When you go inside, you’ll find an open floor plan complete with tall white ceilings and a large skylight. There’s a loft area for guests and seating, but downstairs includes an office space and built-in cabinets for books and knick-knacks. The kitchen has fun black, green and white tiled floors, full-size kitchen appliances, and a wonderful breakfast nook with a bay of windows. The living area includes pine flooring, a wood-burning stove, and couches and chairs for relaxing. Upstairs houses the bedroom and bathroom, also featuring pine flooring and beautiful white-washed walls.

    I know this is a bit to big for you lot who love little homes on wheels. But for me this is great, I’ve always lived in large homes and have also spent time living in little spaces while in the navy.
    It allows both my wife and I our own space but is also cozy

    When I was looking at this interior, it looked very familiar to me. Then I realized it was designed by an architect that I admire…Ross Chapin. I have been a fan or his for some time now. He has cabin/cottage plans ranging from 300 to 1000 square feet. My favorite is the Hilltop model.

  • Trish Dee February 13, 2016, 10:51 am

    This plan looked very familar to me. I had seen Ross Chapin house plans some time ago and really liked them. He builds cabins/cottages from 300 to 1000 square feet. My favorite model is the Hilltop. Check out
    http://rosschapin/plans/cottages/ for more information. The first time I submitted this it didn’t go through. Hope this one does. Does anyone know where I can purchase a chair like the one in the living room?

  • Sharee February 13, 2016, 12:22 pm

    Is the sf for the first floor only as it is in other tiny homes? If it is, I think the layout could be done better. In my housing complex the sf is about 1100sf (that includes the 2nd floor) for a 2 bdrm/2 ba, with fireplace. We also have one story units with slightly less sf, maybe 1070sf, that have 2 full bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths, with fireplace in living room. These are typical sizes in my area of Southern California.

    This unit is nice looking, freshly painted, just ok.

    • Karin Ivand February 13, 2016, 10:32 pm

      Hi Sharee – where is your community in Southern California? It sounds so nice ! I’m looking for a community of tiny houses like yours.

      Thank you!

    Wish it was closer. I still want a cottage look but tiny. Sweet home.

  • Kathy February 13, 2016, 3:07 pm

    Oh my, but that’s a delicious cottage. Maybe a tad too big, but hey, its gorgeous. The BEST part though would be living in a small home community with like minded people, on land from which you couldn’t be evicted by the local government if a grouchy neighbor complains about your tiny house hiding in some one’s garden! This is just lovely, perfect, and otherwise stupendous! Did I mention that I liked it?

    • Nila Ridings February 14, 2016, 2:25 am

      Oh but you can be “evicted” if there is an HOA. HOAs hold the power to fine, lien, and foreclose on your property.

      The risks are massive when buying into an HOA. I’ve studied them for over eight years. I’ve lived in one for ten. I would never own another property in an HOA even if it was paid for a given as a gift.

      Education is key to knowing the truth about HOAs. The truth that Realtors will not tell you. A great place to start is by reading Neighbors At War by Ward Lucas. You’ll learn a great deal just from the reviews on Amazon. His website is neighborsatwar.com

    I AM A TROPICAL LADY AND LOVE LIFE FULL OF VARIETY COLORS. THESE COMMUNITIES ARE ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND BREATH TAKING. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE OF THEM DESIGNED AND BUILT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND SENIORS. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO BUILDERS AND TO ALL INVOLVED IN THIS INDUSTRY. THESE COMMUNITIES ARE SO EXTREMELY VITAL, EVEN TO THOSE LOOKING FOR STARTER HOMES. MUST SAY, THEY LOOK SOMEWHAT ROMANTIC.

    • Eric February 14, 2016, 2:05 am

      Regina, why must you always type in ALL caps. If you have issues with your hands, well it would look nicer if it was all in lower case. All CAPS is the equivalent of shouting, even if that is not your intent. That is what is conveyed.

  • Laura February 13, 2016, 7:59 pm

    Hi Otessa! I looked at the community website. It looked like most of the homeowners were seniors with a nice mix of families with young children. There is a pdf for backyard homes. One of the photos showed a woman in a wheelchair so it looks like they take people with disabilities into consideration. I’m sure most architects will adapt their floor plans for special needs. I agree with you these are lovely, romantic homes. I love the Craftsman style architecture. I would love to live in a community like this but I live in Colorado.

    • Otessa Regina Compton February 13, 2016, 8:35 pm

      LAURA—THANKS! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE COMMUNITIES LIKE THESE BECOME “CONTAGIOUS” FOR EVERY LIFE STYLE. MY FAMILY AND I LIVE IN GEORGIA, BUT WOULD DESPERATELY LOVE TO RELOCATE TO FLORIDA. I AM A PERSON THAT BELIEVES IN VARIETY AND PERSONAL FREEDOM OF CHOICE. WE NEED COMMUNITIES LIKE THESE FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE NOT INTO MEGA MANSIONS, BUT YOU CAN MAKE ONE OF THESE HOMES LOOK LIKE MICRO-MANSIONS.

      • Laura February 13, 2016, 9:01 pm

        Otessa – I like the idea of community and not being a stranger to those that live next door to me or across the street. I’m fascinated with the small house idea. I’m too big of a person and too old for a tiny house! :) I live in the Denver area and I can’t believe how large the newer houses are! My first thought is “who is going to clean that thing!” They’ve got to have maids and hopefully the woman doesn’t work! Anyway, I hope you find your dream home in Florida.

        • Otessa Regina Compton February 13, 2016, 10:00 pm

          THANKS FOR THE WARM WISHES LAURA. I LOVE THE CONCEPT OF TINY HOUSES AS WELL I ALSO LOVE A COMMUNITY, WHERE PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR BICYCLING ARE PROVIDED. THERE SHOULD BE NUMEROUS BICYCLING ROUTES IN EVERY COMMUNITY, JUST FOR OVERALL HEALTH, AND THE SAVINGS ON GASOLINE. BICYCLING PROVIDES FOR SOCIAL INTERACTION AS WELL PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS COULD USE SOME OF THESE ROUTES AND GET SOME SUNLIGHT OF VITAMIN D AS WELL ONE THING GOOD ABOUT COLORADO, IS THAT A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO MEDICINE IS WIDELY ACCEPT, MORE SO THAN IN MOST STATES. IN GEORGIA, WE ARE MORE CONVENTIONAL.

      • Nila Ridings February 14, 2016, 2:29 am

        Otessa,

        Please do yourself a favor and read Neighbors At War by Ward Lucas and his website neighborsatwar.com before you fall in love with these common interest ownership communities. The risks of buying into one are massive. I did it. I’ve learned the hard way. They can destroy your life with all the power they hold. There is little to no protection for the owners. Education is a MUST when thinking of buying into one. Far too many Americans are learning they can be comp;etely destroyed financially and more just by making this one mistake.

        • Jon Bon February 14, 2016, 9:40 pm

          Thanks for the reality check Nila, I tend to see through rose colored glasses and it sure is pretty… but as with condo assoc. et al, a board can end up controlling your life and home. Who keeps the gardens, who decides if and whether they stay the way that attracted you in the first place. I have neighbor problems but no sway and an indifferent constabulary, but at least they have absolutely nothing to say that can affect me, and I can put up privacy fence to keep my Shangri-La just that.
          It’s something to consider – with whom do I want to build this community, though others may be perfectly happy within these structures and strictures. Thanks again.

  • Michael February 14, 2016, 10:58 am

    The cottage is nice but the community is what i think is great! I’d love to find a tiny house community that was laid out like this… green space, mature growth. I may just have to find a decent parcel of land and do it myself. My dream would be maybe 20-25 acres in a rural setting. Maybe 10-15 tiny house sites with maybe an acre each and some common area green/wooded area! Now to find the place where it could be done.

  • Elaine February 15, 2016, 5:33 am

    Beautiful cottage just love the lay out would love one for myself, but I live in Ireland and we don’t have tiny community

  • Nanny M February 16, 2016, 3:11 pm

    Eric, maybe Odessa has vision issues and caps enable her to read? Or there may be another reason. I would think one could deal with reading caps occasionally, especially when it is obvious that no anger is involved, even if one prefers lower case. Don’t we already have enough rules that we need to follow? I think we still have freedom of typing. Usually when something like this irritates me I look and try to figure out why I’m overreacting and wanting another to behave “my way”…

    • Laura February 17, 2016, 11:58 pm

      Nanny, thank you for addressing this comment so eloquently. I wanted to respond myself but had nothing kind to say to him. This is not the place to be rude.
