Thoughtful Modern Rear Unit TH in Ballard

By September 18, 2014


1422 NW 64th St – Unit A is a good looking modern townhome in Ballard built in 2008.

2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, 1,240 square feet for $429,900. Last sold in 2011 for $320,000.

And here’s a preview of what the the architect has to say

In a market environment where formulaic faux-craftsman townhouses are the norm, the developer of this project was hoping to do better. He wanted us to design a project with a contemporary aesthetic and livable units, but that would still fit the same financial model that his bank was used to working with.

Seattle’s typical townhouse developments are flawed. Small yards are enclosed by 6-foot tall fences, rendering them claustrophobic and alienating the streetscape. Parking courts are not designed spaces and are severely shaded by the maximum code-allowed building and roof overhangs. Narrow units have powder rooms on the main floor, congesting the main living spaces, and opening onto the kitchen, dining, or living rooms. Internal circulation is ill considered, leaving rooms that are difficult to furnish or live in. All that, and they are usually poorly designed and constructed.
