*Each day this week we are going to be featuring homes from the 2017 Seattle Modern Home tour, happening this weekend throughout Seattle. Eight houses will be showcased, all accessible from ticket-holders between 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 29. Tickets are still on sale, starting at $35.
On from Phinney Ridge, and off to Lake Union! Up next on our preview tour is one of the Residences on Fairview - 21 attached homes on lakeside lots inside Wards Cove. The Cove is the only 5-acre waterfront site that allows for a contiguous shoreline residential development that offers panoramic views.
But when you think multiple homes, don't think cookie cutter. No two of the units are exactly the same, but all boast indoor and outdoor living areas, with roofdecks, private terraces, garages, in-home elevators and green roofs complete and ready for outdoor rooftop grilling.
The project is part of the overall Wards Cove site, owners of the Wards Cove Packing Company. The location was utilized by their salmon fishing operations until they reclaimed the waterfront site for the marina and commercial redevelopment. It consists of about five acres, over 1,000 feet of waterfront, and includes, the marina, the marina club, offices, 12 floating home sites and these 21 lakeside residences.
All homeowners have access to the amenities, which include moorage opportunities, a conference/event room facility, a furnished suite for overnight guests, a fitness center and ample storage for paddle boards, kayaks or bikes.
