BOTHELL – With its Main Street makeover and bustling new development, downtown Bothell offers multiple reasons for buyers to choose a home in the area. The new Dawson Square community is one of them, with its 45 luxury townhomes set amid restaurants, shops and coffeehouses.

“This is a wonderful location from a walkability standpoint,” says Jim Summers, the community sales manager at Dawson Square. “Right next door is the Bothell public library, a park is across the street, and the new McMenamins is within walking distance.”

Summers is referring to McMenamins Anderson School, which opened in 2015. The former school has been transformed into a neighborhood gathering spot with multiple restaurants, bars, a full-size swimming pool with complimentary access to Bothell residents, a movie theater and more.

Dawson Square is also near The Park at Bothell Landing, a riverfront oasis with access to 42 miles of trails via the Sammamish River Trail and Burke-Gilman Trail. Other highlights include easy freeway access and close proximity to the Bothell Park and Ride lot, which affords a convenient transit option to Seattle and Eastside employment centers.

Dawson Square will include 45 luxury townhomes, each with more than 2,000 square feet of living space over three floors.

“That’s significant, because whether you’re going east to Microsoft, or west, around into Seattle to Amazon, it’s a quick commute from our community,” says Summers.

Built by Toll Brothers, the homes at Dawson Square begin in the mid-$700,000s and offer homebuyers a choice of two floor plans, the Burke and Burke Elite. These plans feature four bedrooms, three bathrooms plus a half-bath, a two-car garage and more than 2,000 square feet of living space over three floors.

Highlights include a first-floor bedroom suite ideal for guests, an open main-floor kitchen with center island, a great room that extends to a covered patio and a master suite with a walk-in closet. The Burke Elite is a corner-unit plan with fewer shared walls and an extended balcony.

Like all Toll Brothers communities, Dawson Square offers the opportunity for personalization. Homebuyers are invited to meet with a professional designer at the Kirkland Design Studio, where they can choose paint colors, hardware and any desired upgrades.

“At other communities, you may not even have the opportunity to change your paint colors,” says Summers. “Here, homeowners can select countertops, tiling, lighting. They can truly make their space uniquely their own.”

Served by the Northshore School District, Dawson Square puts homeowners in a prime location to take advantage of exceptional educational opportunities. It is 1.5 miles to the University of Washington Bothell Campus, which offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs.

“I’m really excited for our buyers to have an opportunity to live in a community like this,” says Summers. “There’s absolutely no weaknesses in this site or in this community.”
