Newer Arboretum Modern

We love the look of this modern house blocks from the Arboretum at 2414 E Helen St. What we think it does really well is extending the living room and kitchen outdoors with a huge deck right off the main living space.

Creative New Home in Fremont

Not far from downtown Fremont a brand new home hit the market this week at 4113 Palatine Ave N. We like that they mixed up the finishes a bit as it seems like every new home or new townhome looks identical. This one stands out with wood siding instead of 100% Hardie siding, and end… Read More

Urban Farmhouse in Maple Leaf

419 NE 88th Street didn’t catch our eye right away. But once a reader pointed out its urban farmhouse interior and its Houzz fame, we dug in and agreed, that it might be Urbnlivn worthy.
