New Construction “City Cabins” in Queen Anne

By February 9, 2012

City Cabins is a pair of new construction townhouses that were recently completed and listed for $650K each on the north end of Queen Anne. Both are 3-bedrooms, 3.25-baths, 2,052 square feet and built by Martha Rose Construction.

Apparently we missed out on the Jan 29 Grand Opening and one of these two units is already pending. I have to say, while I am predisposed towards sustainable, Built Green projects; my reaction is mixed on this one. And, there’s something slightly M.C. Escher about this place that I can’t quite put my finger on.

The good:

  • Plank flooring and exposed beam ceilings
  • Sustainable building practices & Built Green
  • Wired for solar and electric car
  • Stairs are in the middle for added buffer on shared walls

The “huh?!”:

  • Exposed beams (awesome!) in the bathroom (weird :/)
  • Views of the Fisherman’s terminal & mountains (fun!) from standard-sized windows (bummer :/)
  • Designed for privacy (nice!) with angular outcroppings (awkward :/)
  • Separate garage (better than no parking!) that is connected to the house by bridge (unusual :/)

Already pending: 3650 13th Ave W
Still available: 3652 13th Ave W
