In one classic home, four new town houses find a fit
 
 Photo
These Capitol Hill town houses were designed to blend into the historic Seattle neighborhood of single-family homes. Although the units are attached, each owner owns the land under that unit.
Architect: Lukas F. Delen of Archstone Co.

Builder: Archstone Co.

Construction cost/size: $1.2 million total/four units of varying sizes

The intent: Redeveloping the corner site of an old duplex on Seattle's Capitol Hill into four town houses, Delen "tried hard to make it fit into the neighborhood, so the town houses look historical." Steep gables and arches help accomplish that outside. Inside, Delen also went traditional with oak floors, painted millwork, ceramic tile and marble. Each three-story town house has its own entrance. With living space of about 1,300 square feet apiece, the units were priced in the half-million-dollar range.
