Built in the late 1800’s as a butcher’s shop below and residence above, this space is once again occupied by a business and its owners. The location in Bellevue’s picturesque downtown allows the artist owner to have a studio and offer classes in murals and mosaics in the storefront space. When the owners downsized from a 3,500 sft house in Newport to the 900 sft upstairs apartment, they carefully culled their collections and artwork to create the curated displays of natural, artistic and industrial items that give the space so much personalized character. Despite the apartment’s small size, clever planning means they can seat 8 for dinner and 9 for conversation in the living room. Every piece in the home has a story and the warm, clubby atmosphere will charm you, as you spot treasure after unique treasure.
