Judge Thomas Burke and attorney Daniel Gilman founded the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railway (SLS&E) in April of 1885. The line was abandoned in 1971, eventually becoming the Burke-Gilman trail. The avenue address of seven modern townhomes bears his name and SLS&E #3 “Iron Horse” locomotive honors his legacy.
Iron Horse Yard provides comfortable urban living, with no homeowner or condominium dues, less than 2 miles from shops, grocery stores and restaurants in Old Ballard and 4 miles from downtown Seattle. Inside, wide windows and sliding glass doors bring light into all living spaces. These private townhomes feature a great room on the main or second level with a full featured kitchen and dining for six.
The top floor of each unit is a master suite with lots of storage, walk-in closet, 4 fixture master bath and a gracious outdoor balcony. There are 1 or 2 additional bedrooms, a bath and laundry on lower floors and some homes have a den. All homes have a large roof deck.
Iron Horse Yard is designed to Built Green standards, an environmental building program from the Master Builders Association in partnership with King County and Washington State government agencies. Including high efficiency water heaters, plumbing fixtures, and insulation, Iron Horse townhomes are more cost effective to own and will cost less to maintain. Beautiful engineered oak floors, whole house ventilation, and low VOC paint and finishes will promote safer, healthier indoor-air quality and help you leave a smaller environmental footprint while helping to protect the Pacific Northwest’s precious resources.
