Located in the very special historical Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, this 57-townhome community is woven into the fabric of a steeply sloping and revered enclave. Responding to the steep sloping site, upslope, downslope and cross-slope townhomes were designed to maximize the premium views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountain range, while preserving existing onsite trees and renovating existing school site buildings.
The two- to three-bedroom homes in a mix of classic and contemporary townhome styles offer unique design solutions, including great rooms placed on upper levels with rooftop decks capturing impressive views; garage and secondary bedrooms on the mid-level; and the master bedroom and office located beneath the garage level. Every home has a large amount of glass on the view side.
The homes feel generous in their small footprint, with two bedrooms on the third floor and the third bedroom below grade with a great light well. The plans throughout feel just right in their proportion, amenities, openness with natural light, and thoughtful design that allows generous views from each home.
