LYNNWOOD — This weekend, Sundquist Homes opens its newest community, Carvell Glen, an intimate collection of 10 three- and four-bedroom homes located near Martha Lake.
The neighborhood is offering tours of its newly completed model home today and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
"I live in this area, and it is a prime location," says Larry Sundquist, the president of Sundquist Homes. "It's a great address for homeowners who have commutes in different directions — it offers great connectivity regardless of where you're headed.
"I like to joke that I live 20 minutes from everywhere, whether we're driving to Seattle to see a play or watch a Seahawks game, or going out to dinner in downtown Bellevue. In addition, you can drive to Mill Creek Town Center in just a few minutes, and Alderwood Mall is less than 10 minutes away."
Carvell Glen is across the street from the 26-acre Martha Lake Airport Park. Once a community airfield, the park includes soccer and baseball fields, a skate park, a picnic shelter and playgrounds.
"Having this park virtually in your backyard is a huge amenity," Sundquist says. "On a nice, sunny day, you can stretch out on the grass with a book, walk your dog or enjoy a picnic with your family."
The homes at Carvell Glen will be detailed with architectural stone and Hardie-Plank siding. Color schemes were chosen to create a welcoming streetscape, Sundquist says.
Homebuyers can choose from four floor plans: the Belvoir, Dalton, Jackson and Hansbury.
The four-bedroom, three-bath Belvoir design is the largest of the four at 3,228 square feet. It has an open great room, a den, a dining room and a full bath on the main living level. Upstairs, there is a bonus room, a master suite with five-piece master bath, and three additional bedrooms. The home includes a two-car garage.
The three-bedroom Dalton plan includes a three-car garage, an open great room, and a flex room off the entry. A bonus room, a master suite with five-piece master bath and an oversize bonus room are located upstairs.
The Jackson plan has a hub room off the three-car garage — "perfect for dropping off coats, keys and mail without cluttering your living space," Sundquist says. There is a den off the entry, and an informal great room and dining area. On the second level is an open loft or bonus room, a master bedroom with en suite, and three additional bedrooms.
The Hansbury plan has a formal living room, a dining room with a coffered ceiling, and an informal family room. "A first-floor den has a three-quarter bath across the hall, so it can double as a guest suite when you have out-of-town visitors," Sundquist says.
"This is a wonderful community — it's perfect for homeowners who value a more intimate setting and want to be a part of a tight-knit neighborhood," he says. "Whether you're looking to buy now or customize your home as a presale, we have a home that can fit your timeline.
"We are celebrating our 40th anniversary of building homes in the greater Seattle area this year. One of the key reasons for our success and longevity is our emphasis on quality and designing homes to reflect how people like to live. Carvell Glen is a great example of this."
