Whatever the second-smallest home on our list lacks in size, it makes up for in style and locale. This fully remodeled two-bedroom, one-bath bungalow has an open, light-filled floor plan and baseboard heat. A state-of-the-art kitchen comes with marble countertops; a hand-cut, honeycomb-patterned backsplash; a bar; and Fisher & Paykel stainless-steel appliances. The fenced-in yard features a hammock, fire pit and garden. It's adjacent to Pritchard Island Beach (which is on Lake Washington), close to shopping, Interstate 5 and the light rail line that runs between downtown and the airport.
