Sylvan Ridge Townhomes: Welcoming a new WSB sponsor

That’s Tamea Duckworth, who not only is community sales manager for Sylvan Ridge Townhomes in West Seattle, she lives there too. We’re introducing you to her, because today we welcome Sylvan Ridge Townhomes as one of the newest WSB sponsors. And per WSB tradition, it’s their chance to let you know what they’re about: “Most Sylvan Ridge clients are in the 1st-time-homebuyers category, or moving up from a condo. People visiting Sylvan Ridge find our floor plans very unique because of the openness on the main floor. Our double-sided gas fireplaces with built-in bookshelves act as a room divider between the dining & living room. The upper-level master suite and second bedroom have vaulted ceilings for a spacious and airy feel. We are one of the few townhomes here in West Seattle that have two-car attached garages, and we are our own community, meaning we are in our own little cul-de-sac surrounded by trees, so it’s very quiet. All our homes have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder room.” Tamea adds some information about her personal touch: “I have tried to be not just a friendly & informed sales agent here at Sylvan Ridge but, a good neighbor as well because I do actually live here, so I schedule window washing, dryer vent cleanout, got the community involved with the neighborhood-watch program. I am now working on our upcoming 2nd annual community picnic.”

This month at Sylvan Ridge Townhomes, a new phase with 10 more homes is scheduled to be ready. Our home of the week is priced at $299,950. We have other homes from $314,950 that qualify for our limited-time $8,000 buyer bonus. The Sylvan Ridge sales center and available homes are open Fridays through Tuesdays, 12 to 6 pm, at 2733 SW Sylvan Way, above the Home Depot and down the hill from the junction of 35th and Morgan. Tamea can also be reached by phone at (206) 933-6800 or, and more information is available on our website at

    OK the townhouses look good … but we live on the “otherside” on 27th Ave. SW and it looks like a garbage dump! (posted this once and it ended up on another “comment” page! how does that happen!)

    Drive through this place and take a look. I did and couldn’t believe people would want to live there. It looks like a “modern” housing project.

    Collectively we let it happen. I sent in my letter of opposition to the proposed residential density at the time. But it takes an overwhelming amount win.

    I looked at several townhouses and single family houses and Sylvan Ridge was always at the Top of the List. Two major selling points is that we live in a neighborhood where you actually get to know your neighbors and there is a good numbers of Gays and Lesbians here as well. On a nice evening you will find neighbors sitting on the steps in front of their house with their dogs or kids. And to many of us, dogs and kids are synonymous. Standing on the doorstep of my home and looking down the street, I just feel very relaxed and ‘at home’.

    @Marty: Are you sure you are not confusing HighPoint and Sylvan Ridge?

  • Tamea July 9, 2010 (11:03 am)

    Tony I’m with you, it is a great community and I do think we get mixed up with the whole “High Point” project, which is very unfortunate. To the folks who live on the “other side of 27th” your comment is understandable because this has been a construction site for 3 years now. But that said, once the construction is complete, ( projection date is 2012 ) it will be much more pleasant. In the mean time, hang in there! =)

    Just like Tony, I looked at several townhome developments around the city. For the money, Sylvan Ridge offers so much more than the others. The layout and finishes sold me on Sylvan Ridge. My townhouse is fantastic for entertaining. And, it’s nice to have a neighborhood full of friendly folks to boot! Sure, it may look a little stepford, but I think in the long run that will protect the value – it’s nice to be insulated from High Point.

Sorry, comment time is over.
