Judge Sutton Home
From Pam Heinrich, Saturday, June 21, 2014.
I have just finished touring the home and gardens of Rob & Susan Putaansuu. This 1929 3000 square foot Tudor Revival home is on our July 26th Historic Home and Garden Tour and was originally Judge H.G. and Agnes Sutton’s house. Sitting at the top of Sidney Avenue, a peek-a-boo view of Sinclair Inlet and the Olympic Mountains can be seen through the trees. Though the front façade features half-timbering with brick and stucco infill, the gable ends and back still have the original cedar siding. The front porch has copper roof and copper planter boxes under the front windows. In the side yard, a bird bath put there by Judge Sutton still stands. Inside the house, the original oak floors are still present throughout the house. Walls consist of the traditional plaster and lath. An arched opening leads from the living room into the dining room. In the living room, a fireplace front features original ceramic tiles made by Ernst Batchelder (from Pasedena California). The attention to detail in keeping this home in the period it was built will amaze you. You do not want to miss seeing this home and you will want to spend a lot of time talking with these proud owners.
