Ludlow Cove is a neighborhood at the Resort of Port Ludlow in Washington state. Located on the eastern side of the Olympic Peninsula, the site was originally home to one of the earliest sawmills in the Pacific Northwest and still retains much of its wooded heritage.

The site is anchored by a central common green. The cottages were designed to take advantage of the views out to this green, the surrounding woodlands, and Puget Sound.

There are four unique house plans for the cottages. Each cottage has several exterior options with forms and details that give a nod to Pacific Northwest wood construction vernacular. The homes are sited to create a vibrant but unified community with small garages integrated and tucked away into the architecture, and all homes are designed for aging in place.

In this cottage, views of the wooded landscape can be seen from the living and dining spaces.
