NEWCASTLE -- Since opening six months ago, Lake Boren Townhomes has sold 90 percent of its first phase of homes and has presold 40 percent of phase two. A third phase of homes is expected to go on sale soon.
The community of three-level townhomes is located on the northwest shore of Lake Boren and an eight-minute drive from downtown Bellevue and the Eastside's tech corridor. Prices start at $339,888 and FHA financing is available. Qualified buyers can put as little as 3.5 percent down, which is less than $12,000.
With today's interest rates, monthly payments can be less than rents in comparable homes, says Erik Mehr of Erik Mehr & Associates, the sales group that is representing Lake Boren Townhomes.
"Buyers are definitely responding to the value in this amazing lakefront property," Mehr says. "It couldn't be more perfect for first-time buyers [who are] starting families; great school district, affordable pricing, large kid- and pet-friendly open areas, and a waterfront location."
Interiors feature dark wenge wood or light oak cabinets, slab granite countertops with ceramic-tile backsplashes, and stainless steel appliances. In addition, 9-foot ceilings and oversized windows on the main floor fill the homes with light.
The most unique amenity at Lake Boren Townhomes is the lakefront recreation area. Homeowners enjoy 80 feet of lake frontage with a nature trail, entertainment-size firepit, two stainless steel built-in barbecues and four kayaks for use by residents.
"Our homeowners love the waterfront area," Mehr says. "One resident warms up with a quick jog to the dock through the nature trail and then jumps in the kayak for a trip around the lake. This setting is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts."
Lake Boren Townhomes was created by Continental Properties, LLC, an award-winning development team that has 25 years of local experience.
"[Lake Boren Townhomes] is really the best of both worlds," Mehr says. "You're immediately connected to the outdoors, you have a fun waterfront space to gather your friends, and it's only minutes to city nightlife. Savvy buyers experience the unique setting, see the great value and realize this doesn't exist anywhere else."
Lake Boren Townhomes is located within a mile of everyday conveniences such as grocery stores, cafés, banks and a new public library.
