This little cutie is one of the historic cottages on Bainbridge Island in Puget Sound, west of Seattle.  Bainbridge Island is an affluent bedroom community to Seattle, which is a 35-minute ferry boat ride away.

In 2005 Bainbridge Island was named the second-best place to live in the United States by CNN/Money and Money magazine, so it is quite the coveted zip code.

This 1927 vintage home is a jewel not just because of its seaside location, but because of its abundant charm.

The cottage is more spacious than it looks from the exterior at 1,920 square feet, plus it comes with a 3-car garage. Yes – it is currently for sale!

Bathed in natural light, this home has plenty of sunny rooms that defy the stereotype of the dark and dreary Pacific Northwest.

The home has been thoroughly renovated and modernized but the windows and the flooring are original fir.

This home is advertised as a 3 bedroom home, but there is an additional room on the main level with one of those nifty Murphy beds:

Upstairs there are more bright and light-filled rooms thanks to all those generous skylights…

It’s so darn charming. The only problem with this house is that it only has one bathroom. Still, the adorable (yet spacious) bedrooms make up for the lack of toilets.

Outside, you have over an acre (41,382 sq ft lot) of lush green yard in which to romp.

Not to mention beach access right across the road…

    Considering how wonderful, adorable, and charming this heavenly house is and its location right on the water I think the price is quite good. You found a gem in a sea of homes on Bainbridge Island.

    Very sweet little cottage. I wonder how much the price would increase if there was another bathroom? LOL!
