ISSAQUAH — Pinecrest at Issaquah Highlands is celebrating the opening of its sales center this weekend. The collection of 80 homes is on a hilltop overlooking the Olympic Mountains, Mount Baker, Lake Sammamish and Tiger and Squak mountains.
The three- to five-bedroom homes have been creating "quite the buzz," says Anne McIntosh, community sales manager.
"I was getting so many calls and texts [that] I had to recharge my phone three times a day," McIntosh says. "Everyone is so excited about these homes.
"A lot of the calls were from people who already live in Issaquah Highlands but love that our prime address is not only right up the hill from the shops and restaurants at Grand Ridge Plaza, but is also close to I-90."
Grand Ridge Plaza has a Safeway grocery store, a 12-screen Regal Cinemas, 35 shops and 14 restaurants. Tenants include Dick's Sporting Goods, HomeGoods, Marshalls, Carter's, Opal Boutiques, Big Fish Grill, Sip at the Wine Bar and Restaurant, and Caffe Ladro.
Built by CamWest, a Toll Brothers company, Pinecrest homes feature a range of designs. "The homebuilder is introducing some completely fresh and new designs at Pinecrest; it's very exciting," McIntosh says.
Depending on the floor plan, homes may include two-story family rooms, second-floor lofts with covered balconies, executive libraries, finished basements, rear garages and basement-level bedroom suites.
"The collection has a lot of variety in the floor plans, and each plan also has multiple architectural styles, including shingle, Craftsman and contemporary," McIntosh says.
Pinecrest borders a 14.2-acre greenbelt to the south and includes two parks, including one with play equipment.
Because the homes are being sold prior to completion, homebuyers can work with a professional designer at the builder's design studio in Kirkland to select countertops, flooring, window coverings, appliances and more. Homebuyers can choose from 1,400 carpet colors, 325 wood finishes and 147 tile styles.
Those who purchase a home at Pinecrest at Issaquah Highlands through Sunday will receive 50 percent off upgrades up to $30,000 as part of Toll Brothers' national sales event. "This is a great opportunity to create a home that truly reflects your style," says McIntosh.
Pinecrest is located in the Issaquah School District and the Issaquah Highlands master-planned community, which has 1,500 acres of trails, woods, open space and parks. The urban-village community has won numerous awards for its thoughtful, sustainable design.
"The fact that so many of the homebuyers interested in Pinecrest already live in Issaquah Highlands is a testament to the community," says McIntosh. "They love it here and want to stay here. I live nearby and often meet friends for dinner and a movie, and you always see people out and about in the community."
Toll Brothers was named 2012 Builder of the Year by Professional Builder magazine, becoming the first builder to win the honor twice.
