BOTHELL — Sales have begun at Parkhurst, a collection of 59 four- to six-bedroom homes planned on a hilltop with views of the Cascade Mountains.
The community will be within walking distance of the University of Washington's Bothell campus.
"We are thrilled to introduce this collection of new homes," says Dori Rea-Doble, the community sales manager at Parkhurst. "Currently, we are offering pre-model-home pricing, which makes it the perfect time for homebuyers to choose their floor plans and homesites.
"The sites at Parkhurst are expansive. On average, they are 9,000 square feet, but some stretch up to 12,000 square feet for even more privacy."
Homebuyers can choose from 12 home designs, including light-filled three-story and basement homes. The varied designs include homes with wide front porches or columned entries, and second-floor bonus rooms or finished basements with rec rooms that can be used as game rooms or media spaces.
"Our floor plans are very thoughtful and well-designed," Rea-Doble says. "They take into account today's varied lifestyles. There are homes that are perfect for multigenerational families; they offer private bedrooms on the main or lower levels. And there are homes for owners who love to entertain; they offer butler pantries and large kitchen islands for extra prep space.
"Three of our homes are scheduled to be completed as early as January. They include the four-bedroom Frazier, the six-bedroom Georgia and the five-bedroom Sequoia. All three have lower-level recreation rooms that are perfect for a pool table or large-screen television. The Georgia and Sequoia plans also have bedrooms and baths adjacent to the rec rooms."
Buyers can work with a professional designer who will help them choose cabinetry, flooring, countertops and lighting packages that suit their own personal style.
The homes at Parkhurst will vary in architectural style, from Craftsman to contemporary. A cul-de-sac-inspired setting will include a park and sports court at its center.
The Village at Beardslee Crossing is under construction nearby. It will include Chef John Howie's newest restaurant, Beardslee Ale House, as well as Potbelly Sandwich Shop, Menchie's Frozen Yogurt, Wildwood Spirits Co. and Massage Green Spa.
"Our location is a great amenity, in and of itself," Rea-Doble says. "You can walk down and grab a bite to eat on a weekend night at the brewpub, or walk into charming downtown Bothell, which has been undergoing an amazing revitalization.
"The UW Bothell campus is less than a 10-minute walk, and I-405 and Highway 525 are both close by. You can be in Bellevue in 17 minutes, in Seattle in 25, or on Microsoft's Redmond campus in 20 minutes."
