17 Three-Family Homes

This project is a home-ownership development of 17 individual three-family homes. Each one has a new three bedroom duplex unit with a private backyard, off-street parking, and two rental units.

 

Among the design features of these homes are the distinctive facades and bay windows that give individual identity. Each home is offset to break the monotony often associated with row houses. These features, along with a warm color palette and bricks of varying colors on the facades, make for a lively street elevation, breathing life into a once blighted neighborhood.

 

Some of the key features that makes this an attractive housing solution to the potential owners includes designer selected kitchen appliances and cabinetry, full bathrooms with coordinated fixtures, wooden vanities and ceramic tiles, hook-ups in the owner’s unit for a washer and dryer, and separate meters for the gas and electric services to the owner’s and rental units.
