9600 Roosevelt Wy NE Seattle Townhome South Facing End Unit

9600 Roosevelt Wy NE Seattle Townhome South Facing End Unit

New to the market this weekend, this one will go fast. The super convenient location of the Maple Leaf neighborhood along with the high end finishes makes this a very desirable home.  3 bedrooms, 2 baths, open floor plan and smart design stand out in this wider than normal townhome footprint. Nicely fenced front yard separates you from the street with lovely plantings along the south side of the building. There is ample space in the auto court to access your oversized garage with room for a workshop and extra storage.

 

Town home Maple Leaf
Spacious south facing end unit

Built in 2007, this home was one of the first to be certified in the ever popular Built Green of King and Snohomish Counties, and comes with the official certificate. Radiant heat and efficient design with lots of natural day lighting will be there for year to come, saving the occupants money on their monthly utility bills. No homeowner dues in this small grouping of homes, and the established landscaping allows the residents to enjoy their free time strolling down Roosevelt Way enjoying the great Walkscore of the area instead of home and yard maintenance.

 

Open house at town home

On street parking isn’t a problem here either when you entertain using the space for an outdoor grill right off the kitchen.

Ballard Less Than Zero Home

Did you get a chance to read about the cool house in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood that not only produces enough energy to have zero costs, but also produces more energy than it uses!  As a tribute to Robert Downey Jr. , I am calling it the Less Than Zero house, but obviously green building has nothing to do with the excess of the 1980’s.   Anyway, I stray.  Here is a screen shot from Eric Thomas and Alexandra Salmon’s blog on their innovative Ballard green home.

What is the most impressive thing about this story to me is that this creative couple was able to get a brand new Ballard home for just under $400k when all was said and done plus it is a green home.  Who says green real estate has to be expensive?  Do your homework like these two did and you will be surprised!

Green Seattle Real Estate – Many Options

Seattle real estate is great and there are a ton of new “Built Green” new construction properties  –

Thank goodness that there are so many options out there with such great thoughtfulness included!  I have had the pleasure of touring a few more this week when I took some buyers through Green Lake, Maple Leaf, Ballard & Greenwood.

The townhomes, condos, and houses I saw with Bamboo flooring were just divinely gorgeous, but other features of being green included  the use of energy efficient appliances – specifically Energy Star appliances are the best!

Check out the smart builders in Seattle and the Seattle suburbs that are deciding to build greener houses!  I have found that their attention to the environment also tends to translate to attention to detail and higher quality finish work!  I am thrilled to be able to be part of real estate with so many wonderful building products coming out!
