Sunset's Northwest Idea House offers Design, decor, and garden inspiration

Ann Bertelsen and Daniel Gregory

Welcome to our Northwest Idea House - at Claremont on the Park in Redmond, Washington.

The project is a collaboration between the Sunset team, builder Sherman Homes, and our national sponsors. With its gables, flower boxes, and half-timber walls, the house recalls the comfortable and cozy Tudor revival architecture visible in early Seattle neighborhoods.

Building designer William Gottlieb, interior designer Markie Nelson, and landscape architects Tom Berger and David Guthrie made sure that the house is full of ideas for casual, contemporary, garden-oriented living. And it's wired for the 21st century. This home speaks English with a Western accent.
