Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: My wife and I both grew up in the Midwest. We dreamed about moving to the West coast and in 1989 we managed to cobble together almost $1000.00 and a trailer made from the bed of a 1972 Toyota pickup truck. We decided to move to Seattle with barely an idea of what to expect. Nirvana was playing at small clubs in Belltown and Seattle started to get noticed for the Grudge scene. Across Lake Washington Microsoft was minting millionaires by the thousands. Seattle was going to start growing up, an it turns out so were we. Ellen and I were working in the restaurant industry in hopes of one day opening our own restaurant. I was learning as much as I could working as a cook while Ellen was waiting tables at some of the finest restaurants in Seattle. We watched Washington Sate become a World Class wine producing region. Washington State also boasts one of the finest growing regions for many types of produce, hops, livestock, and seafood. It was only a matter of time that with the resources that the tech boom brought to the region that Seattle was to bloom into the incredible global city it is today. Ultimately we decided to pursue careers outside of the hospitality industry--I think we both realized that raising a family would be difficult working the required hours of restaurant owners. I decided to study architecture and building which has developed into a true passion of mine. Ellen went to medical school at University of Washington and now practices as an internal medicine doctor. We have 2 lovely daughters, a Belgian Malanois dog, 8 chickens, 2 bunnies, and an American Saddlebred horse.
Why the Owner Chose Greenwood, Seattle, WA, USA:
We bought this house in 1996. It was a tiny 500 sq. ft. box that had been a cheap rental for many years. As soon as the sale was final I started to tear it down. In retrospect it would have been a much better decision to learn a few things about building and maybe even have a few dollars to my name before I started the demolition. I guess I just knew I did not want to live in the house at its current state. As time went on and my skills developed we slowly started to get the vision of what our property would become. I fell in love with the Japanese courtyard house. I also loved the rigor of Mies Van der Rohe designs. In many ways the design of our house reflects those influences. For twelve years my design/build business operated out of my house with a small cabinet shop in the garage. Wood scraps started piling up and I also began to notice that my body ached a lot by the end of the day. The idea of building a wood-fired sauna seemed to be the perfect solution! We had recently been to Doe Bay Resort on Orcas Island where they have a wood-fired sauna--I always had been in the electric ones at health clubs and wondered what people got out of the experience. That day at Doe Bay sweating like mad and then plunging into a cold soak was a transformative experience. I finally discovered what so many cultures had known for thousands of years: wood-fired saunas are pure rejuvenation! I felt like a newborn baby. Our urban spa was going to be just the thing we needed as we aged and dealt with the growing stresses in our lives. I planted timber bamboo, a birch tree, a few Japanese maple trees and some other carefully placed trees and shrubs in order to give our backyard sanctuary the privacy we desired. I have also worked very hard at making the spa retreat very private and quiet from the main house. There is a separate entrance with its very own entry courtyard.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beyond the passion and thought that has gone into this house our location in the city is of unique advantage. There are several neighborhoods in Seattle where getting to and from major arterials is just plain difficult and time consuming. We are located close to virtually all of the transportations hubs. We also live in one of the most walkable neighborhoods with a wonderful park 200 ft. from our house and our neighborhood center just .5 miles from the house.
