GOING GREEN—Palatine Passive, the distinct 3-BR, 2.25-bath at 8713 Palatine Avenue N in Greenwood is now on the market asking $1.05M. Malboeuf Bowie Architecture created this eco-friendly gem, which is actually still in final stages of Passive House Certification. There aren't very many homes in Seattle that look like this and even less that are this sustainably-built.
LISTICLES—Redfin wanted to prove you could live in a neighborhood with a high Walk Score and proximity to highly-rated schools without paying million-dollar prices. The company discovered that Seattle actually has a bunch of them. Of the 24 found among major cities, seven are in Seattle and the very best of the bunch are University District and International District. See how the conclusion was reached.
ADVENTURES IN DIY—Parents, you may want to make sure your kids don't see this. Bellevue's Rob Adams recently built a "fairy treehouse" in his daughter's bedroom and shared the results. The entire project cost around $4,250 and he put in 350 hours over the course of 18 months to make it happen. Check out the awesome photos and, seriously, don't tell your kids this exists.
