BOTHELL — Located near the border of Bothell and Mill Creek, The Woods at Mill Creek has several homes available for closings in January and February. The community is offering a $10,000 buyer bonus on the move-in-ready homes.

Among the plans is the 2,818-square-foot Rhody Ridge, which features five bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a walk-out basement. Its price starts at $501,990. The Heron plan — available for a January move-in — has two stories and four bedrooms and starts at $479,990.

“We have floor plans that suit a wide range of budgets and family needs,” says April McCray, the community sales manager. “Most families are thinking to the future and love the fact that they can have a large family here. Whether it’s extended family moving in or they’re planning for kids, we always hear buyers say, ‘This is going to be a great family home for us.’ ”

Signature features include a great-room living concept with an open kitchen and chef’s island, engineered hardwood flooring, and living rooms with stacked-stone gas fireplaces and nearly wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows.

Many of the homes at The Woods at Mill Creek back to a native-growth protected area, affording views of a wooded corridor. The community is located adjacent to the 35-acre North Creek Park.

“Each home has a viewing deck for enjoying nature, and that’s just one feature buyers love,” says McCray. “They can relax out there on a summer evening and feel the serenity of a backdrop of the lush greenbelt behind them.”

The community connects to 23 miles of trails for hiking, bird watching or dog walking. This adds to the sense of seclusion and retreat, an uncommon benefit among developments in the area, adds McCray.

“It’s all about the nature,” she says. “One of the first things people say is, ‘Oh wow, look at the trees.’ Living at The Woods really gives people the opportunity to feel like they have stepped away from it all. It’s like they’ve gotten out of the city, but really it’s just around the corner.”

The Woods at Mill Creek puts homebuyers within a 10-minute commute of Interstates 5 and 405. It is also within walking distance to Mill Creek Town Center, which has more than 80 stores, boutiques, restaurants, and entertainment and fitness services.

“It’s a remarkable location,” says McCray. “And now, as our buyers have moved in, you see a lot of people out and about in the community. Children playing in the streets and riding their bikes together is a common daily scene, and I think that makes this a very special place to live.”
