Introducing The Sellwood Rowhouses

Published: February 16, 2024 | Read Time: 3.5 Minutes

Seabrook Real Estate is excited to introduce the Sellwood Rowhouses: Four unique, ocean-view homes nestled in the vibrant South of Market neighborhood. These two-story, three-bedroom homes are a short stroll to the town center, while also being only steps from Kucera Park and nearby beach accesses. This premier home location in Seabrook offers the best of urban and coastal living available on the Washington Coast.

“We have a lively and burgeoning town center, and these rowhouses are just one block away from Market Street,” says Stephen Poulakos, Vice President of Town Planning & Design. “Not only do you have a great in-town park literally steps from your front porch, but you can also enjoy distant water views from your upper balcony, all while being close to your favorite shops and restaurants.”

The in-town park Poulakos refers to is the established Kucera Park in the South of Market (SOMA) neighborhood. Kucera showcases a year-round oceanview pickleball court, an activity lawn popular for yoga, an adventure playground, a community fire pit, and an easy connection to the Elk Creek neighborhood’s beach trails and access.

A Seamless Neighborhood Addition

The Sellwood Rowhouses are a natural addition to SOMA with their thoughtful exteriors and floor plans designed to accommodate flexibility while highlighting the ocean views.

“These homes are a perfect fit for somebody that wants to live urbanly while still being able to enjoy the amenities of a single-family home,” says Holly Emerson, Designated Broker. “They’re very sidewalk-centric, making it easy and natural to engage with passersby.” 

Holly shares that the rowhouses’ ocean-view porches and upper-floor balconies make these homes so attractive – in addition to their open floor plans, bedroom count(three), and designated parking.

In addition to these features, Poulakos shares that these homes offer flexibility regarding different lifestyle needs. The flex space of the bedrooms for a possible in-home office, small backyards that work well for those with pets, and mudrooms perfect for stowing beach gear are great examples of their intentional design.

Well-suited For Residing Or Renting

“The value of the rowhouses is that they are three-bedroom homes close to the town center,” says Poulakos. “It would make for a great rental property or a full-time living home close to the commercial town center and energy on Market Street.”

For those interested in a rental property, Seabrook’s onsite professional property management company, Seabrook Hospitality, makes owning a rental home in Seabrook smooth and consistent. In addition to reservation management and housekeeping, they also have maintenance and full-time safety services to ensure homeowners can have peace of mind whether they are in town enjoying their home or away.

If homebuyers are searching for a slightly larger or smaller sellwood rowhouse, the two end homes have more square footage while the two center units have slightly less.

“We did this purposely to offer variety in our town center homes,” Stephen says. “As far as the sizes of the homes and related pricing, the floor plans are actually quite similar for all four homes, with the two homes on the ends enjoying slightly more space than the two midblock homes, but with all four working in concert with one another.”

New Urbanism Principles At Work 

These rowhouses are great examples of the principles of New Urbanism at work here in Seabrook, creating a seamless transition from urban to more residential.

“In New Urbanism towns like this, it’s not uncommon at all to have housing units attached like this,” says Stephen. “These rowhouses are a really good architectural precedent for making that merge from solely residential to mixed-use and commercial residential areas while still keeping an urban feel.”

When it came to design specifics, these homes were designed with care by Seabrook’s team. Each home optimizes the ocean views with large window sets that let in an abundance of natural light.

“These homes are different in that they have a full front porch and second-floor balcony to allow lots of great light in,” Stephen says. “The west-facing facade windows allow you to take in those western sunsets as the warm light streams through. There’s also the really great view of Kucera Park and the distant water view of scenic Elk Creek beyond.”

The Sellwood rowhouses are a special opportunity to make the most of a beach home with their intentional floor plans, ideal location, and connectivity to the beach, town, and nature trails.
