The Boulders

The Boulders is a cluster of nine single-family homes built around a hillside garden court located on an infill site ten minutes from downtown Seattle in the Greenlake neighborhood. Environmentally friendly wool carpeting, Marmoleum bathroom flooring, and low-VOC paint are intended to enhance the development’s appeal to environmentally informed buyers. A manmade stream takes advantage of the site’s slope while helping mask traffic noise. With houses originally priced between $750,000 and $800,000, the project has attracted affluent buyers–a mix of empty nesters, childless professional couples, and part-time parents.
