Townhomes w/The Living Room Upstairs

3521 Wallingford Ave N

Longtime Urbnlivn readers know that I often wonder why no one builds townhouses with the living room on the top floor to take advantage of the view since you spend more time in your living room than in your bedroom. I know the answer is that people don’t like walking up stairs. But it was nice to have Phil point me to a townhouse project designed by b9 architects with just the floorplan I’ve been looking for at 3521 Wallingford Ave N.

Distinctive design by award winning b9 architects. Enjoy unparalleled views of downtown Seattle, Lake Union, & the Space Needle from rooftop deck. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, & large office/media room. Open floor plan flooded with natural light & amazing attention to detail. Chef influenced kitchen is perfect for entertaining w/ stunning wood cabinets, stone counter tops, & stainless steel appliances. Master suite w/ attached bath, & walk in closet. Walkscore of 78 = very walkable.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    At least you can rest in the ground floor “media” room before you make your trek up to the living room.

    I would think you would get more usage out of your roof top deck with it being just above the living room. Easier to get your get your guests up there, none of that “you want me to go up 3 flights of stairs when I’m already comfortable down here?”
