If we won the lottery, we'd have a sleek, modern city home and a casual home by the water. Seeing this family retreat off the coast of Seattle made us seriously yearn for the latter. Lots of windows, light, a windowseat, a fireplace nook, built-in bookcases... oh, and a "writer's hut." Drool.
The homeowners have adult children, and the five structures and barn are perfect for the family to have communal dinners, etc., but also separate spaces.
