MUKILTEO -- Homes are selling quickly at The Arbors at Harbour Pointe. The community of three- and four-bedroom homes is located in Mukilteo, one of Money magazine's 10 best small towns in the U.S for 2011.
"Our sales have been phenomenal -- we have a large number of pending sales right now and limited inventory," says Margaret Woehlert, the community sales manager. "Currently, we only have one home that is under construction and another that is at foundation, putting you in your new home in two to four months. Pre-construction presale opportunities are also available."
Mukilteo's seaside setting earned praise from Money magazine. Located on Possession Sound, the town offers waterfront restaurants and ferry access for a trip to Whidbey Island.
The community is approximately two miles from the Everett Boeing plant. It has nearby access to Interstate 5 and Highway 99, and the Sounder train can deliver commuters to downtown Seattle in less than an hour.
Harbour Pointe is a master-planned community that features streets lined with mature trees, vintage-style lampposts and wide sidewalks, as well as sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound.
"This is a community that gets out and enjoys the neighborhood," Woehlert says. "There are trails everywhere, and there are always people out walking their dogs, jogging or bicycling. It's very pedestrian friendly -- you can walk to the grocery, there's the Golf Club at Harbour Pointe down the street, and right across the street is Village Center."
Village Center is reminiscent of a town center, with a quaint clock tower and village green as well as a barber shop, watch-repair shop, coffee shop and day spa.
Buyers at The Arbors at Harbour Pointe can choose from seven home designs, ranging in size from 2,200 to more than 2,700 square feet. All of the homes include first-floor powder rooms and two-car garages, and many designs also feature vaulted ceilings in the entries, second-floor utility rooms, open loft spaces, breakfast nooks, formal dining rooms, first-floor studies and second-floor bonus rooms.
Interiors feature Craftsman-inspired millwork throughout, open-rail staircases, and gas fireplaces framed in stone or tile. Kitchens have hardwood floors, slab granite countertops with 6-inch tile backsplashes, stainless steel appliances and maple kitchen cabinetry with soft-close doors.
In addition, master suites include five-piece master baths with walk-in closets, ceramic tile countertops and oversized soaking tubs.
The Arbors at Harbour Pointe was built by Highland Construction, LLC, an affiliate of The Burnsteads, a local homebuilder that spans two generations. Founder Fred Burnstead began building homes east of Lake Washington more than 50 years ago, and today three companies are united under the Burnstead name.
The company is committed to building sustainable communities through its Living Wise program. Extensive use of low volatile organic compound (VOC) materials helps to create a healthier indoor-air environment, and 2-by-6-inch exterior walls provide added strength in the homes' framing. Recycled construction materials are used as building material throughout the homes.
