Six months ago, we reported on a first-of-its-kind plan for remodeling and reselling three vintage West Seattle homes instead of tearing them down. Now, the Westwood Village-vicinity homes dubbed “The Triplets” are done and listed for sale, with their first public open house today (Sunday). We stopped by for a sneak preview Saturday. Here are two of them:
All three are in the 8800 block of 24th SW – from north to south along the east side of the block, Clara, Zelda, and Louise, as named by Green Canopy Homes, which “re-envisioned” them with financing from the Washington State Housing Finance Commission‘s Sustainable Energy Trust Lending Program. It’s all about energy efficiency – but “The Triplets” have been updated in far more than that aspect, from the entries…
… to the living areas …
… to the bedrooms …
and beyond. A bit more information, from the official announcement of their completion:
The Triplets are Built Green certified and are expected to use 25-50% less energy than before the remodeling, as determined by a pre- and post-work energy audit.
The three-bedroom, two-bath homes range from 1,300 to 1,600 square feet, on lots of 7,440 square feet. Each includes a surprising addition at the rear: a “great room” with 11-foot ceilings that connects living, dining and kitchen space with the back yard. Two homes have detached garages; all three offer plentiful off-street parking and alley access in the rear.
Today’s open house will run 1-4 pm.
Sorry, comment time is over.
