YAKIMA — While bountiful vineyards complete August’s celebration of Washington State Wine Month, Quail Run at Terrace Heights continues popping corks above the Yakima Valley with new homes set in its gated community for active adults ages 55 and older.

Barely two hours from Seattle, the 117-homesite neighborhood stretches summer wine-tasting getaways into year-round attractions with access to more than 60 nearby vintners, as well as a vibrant recreational scene loaded with multi-season fishing, hiking, golfing, skiing and water sports.

To showcase its proximity to award-winning wine and brewing country, Lakeshore Communities’ Quail Run at Terrace Heights is hosting an open house from noon to 4 p.m.  Sept. 30, sharing the weekend with downtown Yakima’s Fresh Hop Ale Festival. The weekend will spotlight move-in-ready designs and vistas of the valley, Mount Adams and Union Gap, says Lakeshore Homes sales manager and on-site broker Pat Loomis.

The event coincides with groundbreaking on Quail Run’s final 26-homesite phase, many of which will feature panoramic views, Loomis says.

All homes feature three-bedroom/den-optional floor plans by Marlette Homes. Each design features 1,200 to 2,100 square feet of living space, with two bathrooms and interior amenities that include window coverings and a heat pump. Irrigation systems keep the low-maintenance landscaping lush.

Fully vinyl-fenced rear yards with covered patios welcome homeowners’ pets. Finished two-car garages — with three-vehicle options — are also included.

Residents can also enjoy Quail Run’s air-conditioned clubhouse, with billiards, library and card room, and entertainment space with a kitchen. Outdoors, sunset views frame the patio, spa and swimming pool.

Loomis says Quail Run purchases don’t include the homesite, only the finished homes and improvements. A monthly owner’s fee covers the cost of professional on-site management and common area maintenance.

“We’ve got it all at Quail Run: the best recreation,” he says. “World-class health care, Alaska Airlines flights, shopping at Costco and Walmart, some of the world’s best wineries — who wouldn’t want to toast to all that?”
