RAVENSDALE — The Estates at Sugarloaf Mountain offers customers a unique buying proposition: acreage estate lots in a gated community that is less than a 10-minute drive from shopping, schools and health services.

Even more unique, according to Bill McCaffrey, the project manager for Garrette Custom Homes at The Estates at Sugarloaf Mountain, may be the community’s largely flat 2.5- to 11-acre wooded homesites. The space allows for detached garages and workshops, sport courts or accessory dwelling units.

Forty-two of the 93 lots have sold in nine months, McCaffrey says.

At the Taste of Sugarloaf, taking place Oct. 17, visitors to The Estates at Sugarloaf Mountain can take a progressive tour of four newly-completed model homes, each serving gourmet food to guests.

The event will also feature community tours by horse-drawn hayride, a free pumpkin patch and an opportunity to support the Maple Valley Food Bank.

In addition, Homebuilding 101 seminars will be offered by Garrette Custom Homes Oct. 17 from 10–11:30 a.m. and from 3–4:30 p.m.

Garrette Custom Homes was attracted to The Estates at Sugarloaf Mountain by the opportunity to build large homes with rambler floor plans “that shifting demographics are making so desirable,” McCaffrey says.

This weekend marks the opening of a model home with the Cascade floor plan. It includes a den, master bedroom and two additional bedrooms on the main level, as well as an en suite bedroom/bonus room on the second floor.

“The new-home market is evolving, with ever more homeowners returning to the livability and comfort of single-level and master-on-main floor plans,” McCaffrey says. “We’ve designed 16 new ramblers from 1,800 to 4,400 square feet over the last few years. So far, our presale buyers have all selected large ramblers with additional bedrooms, baths and bonus rooms upstairs.”

The Estates at Sugarloaf Mountain is located off Kent-Kangley Road in Ravensdale, near Maple Valley, and is served by the Tahoma School District.
