Ellis Residence

The Ellis Residence is a place where most would go to retire away in the sub-urban countryside—Bainbridge Island near Seattle, Washington. Having been there a handful of times, I can assure you of its beauty.

The architects of the project, Coates Design, built this 2,560 sq. ft. contemporary home from materials of the pre-existing structure. They then implemented geothermal, photo-voltaic and solar technology solutions in an effort to reduce energy consumption. If you look closely in this photograph you can see one of the solar panels on the roof.

Beautiful, I love the Seattle area. I’d have to agree with Jimmy – from the pictures, it almost looks like you’d be walking on bananas.

“The Ellis Residence is a place where most would go to retire away…”

Wait, what fantasy world is this? Isn’t the economy about to go completely down the toilet?

I doubt if *most* people will be retiring to places like this in their ‘golden years’. Unless by ‘retire away’ you mean a long weekend break. Might be a US/UK translation thing.

It is a beautiful home though.
