MainVue Homes is kicking yesterday’s laborious house-hunting routines to the curb with its innovative new World of Model Homes sites.

Launching this month at two locations are compelling designer tour experiences. Eight walk-through homes will open at Auburn’s Greenvale World of Model Homes, as will a five-home collection in Monroe at the Eaglemont World of Model Homes. Both feature MainVue’s latest home designs, color schemes and façades.

The see-it-all arrays introduce MainVue’s engaging new home tours, designed to turn stale Saturdays into lively weekends showcasing modern, stylish living, says MainVue sales consultant Jennifer Clarke.

“Our guests can’t stop talking about how much they love that our World of Model Homes gives them a place where they can spend an afternoon touching, feeling and experiencing all these fresh, sophisticated new things all in one place,” she says. “One local high-end custom builder shared that MainVue has really taken it up a few notches.”

Visitors can explore a variety of two-story, open-floor-plan homes that range in size from 2,663 to 4,102 square feet — all with an array of luxury inclusions at no extra cost. After that, Clarke says, buyers can learn more about MainVue’s 11 neighborhoods where these plans can be built. Popular locations stretch from Puyallup to Monroe, including settings in Kent, Maple Valley and Bothell.

To kick off the experience, Clarke invites guests to point their home-buying compass to either World of Model Homes site, where she says the streetscapes command powerful first impressions.
Lush front yard landscaping adds Northwest greenery to dynamic façade accents, Clarke says.

Welcome centers invite homebuyers to cross the threshold at each home through the oversize custom wood and glass panel entry door into a fashionable foyer finished with wide-plank flooring. Natural daylight pours in through well-placed windows, while LED designer fixtures illuminate evening dinner parties.

“Imagine holiday entertaining in the expansive great rooms, which flow seamlessly into spacious gourmet kitchens,” Clarke says.

Kitchen features include chrome Grohe faucets, energy-efficient Electrolux appliances, quartz countertops, entertainment islands and butler’s pantry storage space (occasionally paired with an additional walk-through grand butler’s pantry).

Explore the leisure rooms, multi-purpose rooms and dens enhancing various plans. In every model, binge a bit in the entertainment-ready “haute spot” — MainVue’s signature outdoor room — accessible from the great room via full-height walls of sliding glass.

Some plans — including The Duxton, which is on display at both sites — include dual walk-in dressing rooms, stand-alone soaking tubs, double-sink vanities and designer-tiled walk-in showers in master suites. Three or four secondary bedrooms with the potential for walk-in closets and personal bathrooms are nearby.

Five designer-selected color palettes blend each floor-to-ceiling space together.

“Run your fingers over natural tones and hues of leaf, ocean, koko, pebble and amaretti schemes that equally warm and brighten flooring, cabinets, walls and counter finishes,” says Clarke. “Guests keep telling us that our new exterior colors are amazing. They love our mix of textures throughout the home, and the way all the colors complement each other.

“One of my favorite reactions to all of this came from a pair of sisters,” she continues. “Each time the first sister would tour another new home, she kept calling that one her new favorite. Finally, the second sister said, ‘I think it’s safe to say you love them all.’

“This is exactly why homebuyers need to experience our World of Model Homes for themselves.”
