Martha Rose Townhome in Rainier Vista

It was only 3 years ago that Infiniti RED co-owner Danielle Johnson listed and sold a 13 unit townhome project for Martha Rose Construction in Seattle’s redeveloped Rainier Vista neighborhood. Formerly occupied by temporary housing from the 1940s, Rainier Vista is a 34 acre planned community in southeast Seattle located on the LINK Light Rail line and just minutes from Columbia City. While a portion of the redevelopment included low-income and subsidized housing, the rest is market- rate homes, and all homes were required to achieve Built Green certification. Martha Rose Construction was the only builder in Rainier Vista, and possibly the City at that time, to achieve the highest level of 5-Star Built Green and ENERGY STAR certification on a townhome project, which appropriately earned her the title of Seattle’s ‘Queen of Green‘.

Needless to say, we are excited to announce that our new Featured Listing is the very first resale of a Martha Rose townhome in Rainier Vista. This is an end unit with 3.5 stories, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2100sf and a detached 2-car garage, but it is far from a typical townhome! Enter from the street through a friendly, front porch and walk straight into the heart of this home. The light-filled and open main floor, with 9′ ceilings and polished concrete floors, includes the kitchen, dining and living rooms, plus a Martha Rose signature passive solar atrium, which opens to the private backyard and patio area. Retreat to the upper floors for resting, relaxing or working from home. Plus, the Columbia City Link Light Rail Station is JUST 2 BLOCKS AWAY!

All 13 units were pre-wired for solar hot water and electric, but this is 1 of only 2 units that actually had both these systems installed. The owners also finished the fourth floor flex space, with the same golden bamboo floors that grace all the upper levels. Another unique feature of this home is the Heat Recovery Ventilator, which uses outgoing air from all the bathrooms and utility room to warm or cool incoming fresh air going to all the bedrooms. This combined with the use of low-VOC, non-toxic paints and finishes throughout and no carpet means occupants can enjoy a superior level of indoor air quality.

So, come visit our Open House at 2825 S Adams St, this Sunday (Sept 20th) from 1-4pm! Danielle will be on site to answer any and all questions about why living in this home, located in this incredible community, with the LINK Light Rail, Columbia City, Seward Park and Lake Washington at your fingertips, is a really smart thing to do!
