Magnolia Gardens Featured in Northwest Home, January 2008
LIGHT TOUCH Rhodes brings in light and banishes the cookie-cutter blueprint
Seattle Magazine/Northwest Home: January 2008 Best of Home
“Rhodes transformed an existing 1954 foundation into marvelous Magnolia Gardens, a quick-to-sell spec residence.”
“The Glade comprises three new homes on neighboring Magnolia lots and 19,000 square feet of gardens, rocks, streams, and pools. This in-progress residence on Puget Sound features two wings linked by a central dining hall. The mix of natural tones and materials makes for a warmly inviting kitchen in the Magnolia Gardens home.”
“If a recent project, Magnolia Gardens, is any indication, local homebuyers approve of his function-oriented design. The modern, utilitarian spec house—which has wide, sweeping overhangs that allow the owners to use outdoor spaces in any weather—was on the market for less than a week before selling for more than $2 million in fall 2006.”.
