Capitol Hill Contemporary Townhouse In A Sea Of Cookie Cutters

126 21st Ave E_00

It’s sad to find the southeast corner of Capitol Hill is home to so may bland townhouses. Thankfully there is 126 21st Ave E to show the way forward.  Built in 2009, the low point of the housing bust, the builder definitely took a risk in offering something different.  At 1,230 square foot, it’s smaller… Read More
