      Brewbooks, lo and behold, I went by and photographed the SAME house on my very first visit to Seattle. As I drove by it (accidentally), it felt familiar to me and I knew it was similar to yours. It wasn't until i uploaded to flickr that I realized it was the same house!

      Erica - glad to help, being avid gardeners. I like this garden advice:

      I like the sweep of the gables, the white trim and the collection of piers.

      pinehurst19475 - It is a striking Craftsman house, I should revisit this since the photo was taken almost 4 years ago

      That house looks amazing, like straight out of a really expensive magazine. Imagine living there.
