Built for a couple transitioning into retirement, Whidbey Dogtrot House checks every requirement for a happy, contented lifestyle.
Seattle-based SHED Architects built the house on a waterfront lot on Whidbey Island, the compact, low-maintenance home features a ‘dogtrot’ – a central breezeway covered b a roof — that provides picturesque views of the surrounding terrain. Exterior walls are made of red cedar, while large windows offer a peek into the contemporary design of the interior. The flex space interior makes it perfect for family visits, while a reading nook, a wide terraced area, and cozy spaces inside and outside of the house make sure the visitors are comfortably at home.
The 111-square-meter home makes the most out of every inch of the property, while making it bigger than it looks with picturesque views of Washington’s Mt. Baker and Saratoga Passage — perfect for a couple who looks to take in the beauty of life for the rest of their days. More from SHED Architects here and on Instagram.
