ANACORTES — Limited to just 30 homesites, eight of which have sales pending, the 48° North community has been designed to maximize its views of the San Juan Islands.

The builder, Landed Gentry Homes and Communities, is offering 10 home plans that are designed to maximize views and optimize comfortable living.

Home designs include single-level, daylight rambler and traditional two-story layouts; five of the 10 offer master suites on the main level. The homes will range in size from 2,118 to more than 3,600 square feet. Many will have media rooms and bonus loft options, as well as two-, three- or four-car garages.

Buyers at 48° North are able to personalize their homes with selections that match their lifestyle and taste. Finishes include extensive hardwood flooring; solid-surface counters throughout; solid wood cabinetry; and fully landscaped, irrigated and fenced yards.

The homesites at 48° North will offer views of Guemes Passage and the San Juan Islands.

The builder is offering “hard-hat tours” of the model home at 48° North this weekend while it is under construction; an onsite information center is open Wednesdays through Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Presales are underway, with the first homebuyers expected to move in later this year.

Located in Anacortes, 48° North is within walking distance of Washington Park, the Guemes Channel Trail and the San Juan ferry terminal. It also offers easy access to town amenities — a hospital, a library and the downtown core are all within a five-minute drive. It’s a 1.5-hour drive to Seattle or Vancouver, B.C.

Anacortes offers a range of outdoor recreation opportunities, including boating, fishing, hiking and biking. The city is also home to several art galleries and a monthly art walk.
