KIRKLAND — Construction has begun on an enclave of five luxury homes in a cul-de-sac within the Lakeview Lane community.
The collection marks the second phase of the community, and will have its own entrance. Homes will include up to four bedrooms.
"Buyers can choose from three newly introduced floor plans in the second phase, giving the neighborhood a very distinctive look and feel," says Windermere Real Estate's David Liddle, the listing agent at Lakeview Lane. "In addition, some of the homes will feature outstanding westerly views of Lake Washington, the Olympic Mountains and the Seattle skyline."
Built by CamWest, a Toll Brothers company, the homes in the second phase are priced starting at $1.04 million. Homes remaining in the community's first phase are priced from $769,950.
Second-phase homes are being sold presale, which allows buyers to personalize their spaces. Liddle says they can work one-on-one with an interior designer at the builder's design studio to select the finishes that reflect their design style. Options range from cabinet colors and countertops to appliances and window coverings.
Five homes remain for sale in Lakeview Lane's first phase. Three of the homes will be ready for occupancy in the spring. They feature the builder's Norway and Shumway floor plans.
The Norway is a four-bedroom, 3.5-bath duplex plan. It features a bedroom with full bath on the lower level, and an open great-room design on the main floor that includes a curved kitchen island. Three additional bedrooms are upstairs.
The stand-alone Shumway is a two-story design with a formal living room, separate dining space and a family room on the main level. Four bedrooms and an open bonus room are upstairs.
Homes with the Norway and Shumway floor plans include professionally maintained yards.
Gene Zipp and his wife, Kimberly, moved into their new home at Lakeview Lane in November. He grew up in Seattle, but lived in Los Angeles for a time before moving back to the area.
"When we moved back to the region, we were living in an apartment and took our time looking for a home," Zipp says. "One of the appeals of our home at Lakeview Lane was that it was new construction, and behind us is a greenbelt so there is a sense of privacy. We also liked that it has a great-room layout."
Lakeview Lane is located within walking distance of restaurants and grocery stores in downtown Kirkland, including Metropolitan Market and PCC Natural Markets.
"We often walk to the lake and to Kirkland's business district," Zipp says. "The neighborhood is really convenient to the restaurant scene in Kirkland."
"If you want, you can even leave your car at home for your commute into work," Liddle says. "You can walk to the bus stop and catch the 255 bus, which will take you right into Seattle."
