COEUR D'ALENE - If uniformity is not your thing then the Ice Plant Townhomes might drive you nuts. If you can look past it then one of the 24 nearly identical townhomes just might work for you. From the sidewalk it's a nice looking project: Neighborhood scale, lots of brick, exposed wood, and traditional dormers all show an attempt to fit into the neighborhood. A quick look inside and there looks to be ample attention to quality there as well.
The 24 homes are set in two groups split by a central alley that provides garage access. About the only variation on the units from the exterior is the color of the dormers and the amount of brick on the 2nd floor. That aside, the location of the former trailer park site is a 10 minute walk to downtown and about two blocks from the main drag of Sherman Avenue. We're loving how well this one relates to the street - built up to the sidewalk, parking in back, permeable front...pretty much 3 for 3 in our book. Our thought: Get a corner unit for more daylight - 2 beds 2.5 baths (1,300sqf) from $275K.
