City Cottage - 418 North Lake Street Double Dutch doors welcome visitors to a profusion of color. This charming home, built in 1958 and renovated by Bainbridge architect Bob Hobbles and the current owner, is a tiny private museum of wonders. The inviting living room brims with patterned fabrics and unusual artifacts from around the world - lithographs, lamps, ceramic chickens, and ornamental crosses. Built-in bookcases lend warmth and interest. Note the Doric column between the living and dining areas. The remodeled kitchen is bright with polished copper cookware, shimmering tile, and the artful placement of a mirror to harmonize and enlarge the visual space. European pine furniture in the master bedroom, shuttered windows, and a screen on the wall behind the bed lend a cottage atmosphere. The guest suite includes a sitting room with a carefully refinished barn door to add texture to the wall and a striking vintage poster. The spacious bedroom with its unusual iron bed frame and ensuite bath, leads out to the garden. A large paved patio off the dining area runs the length of the house. It includes a gracious seating area, dining area, and space for the hot tub. Beyond, the stone walkway leads to a free standing, custom-designed artist’s studio complete with tile floor and French doors.

A Chelan Valley Hope volunteer is behind that long white beard.

This home in Clos Chevalle, built by Greg Cowell in 2007, is designed to resemble a French or Italian country farmhouse, and the two ornamental chimneys at either end reflect the overall theme. Note the fully arched entrance hallway, and how the arch motif is echoed in the entrances to the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The inviting living room is cozy with a large, decorative fireplace and French doors looking out over the vineyards and Lake Chelan. The handsome chandelier in the dining room is reflected in the mirror over the fireplace. The European-style kitchen features a dramatic black farmhouse sink and its own fireplace. The refrigerator is faced to match the cabinets, and French doors overlook a European garden area complete with a fountain. On the lake side of the house, an expansive covered patio, defined by terracotta pavers, includes a fireplace, dining area, and seating area with lounge chairs. Both the patio and the pool, built in 2016 on its own terrace, provide unobstructed views of the Chelan Valley from Stormy Mountain in the Northwest to the lights of Chelan in the East.
