Do you want to live in a house that gives you the feeling of being in a cottage while residing in the modern setting? Take a look at our house feature for today. It is a house that combines sustainable materials and features while giving the homeowners a modern living. The Issaquah House is located at the base of the Squak Mountain. It has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a home office and a media room.

The exterior of the house has stone and wood finishes allowing it to blend well with its unspoiled environment. It has a deck that gives the homeowners a good view of Mt. Rainier which also serves as an extension of the living room. What gives the house a cottage feel is its use of wood and brick combined. The interior also has wooden stairs, pillars and exposed beams giving it a cottage look. The designer also opted to have minimal decorations and furniture to drive the attention towards the outdoor beauty.
