Mid day view of valley and mountain from home
[OK, it's not officially an old house. But the view is timeless and so spectacular we decided to make an exception.

And anyway, someday it will be an old house, and this site will be here to document it
- The Editors]

This lovely custom home and guest house is 45 minutes south of Seattle located high on the rim of the Puyallup valley with a spectacular 180 degree view of Mt. Rainier, Cascade mountains, Carbon river, and Orting valley. The guest house overlooks a Japanese garden with pond, waterfall, and extensive view.
