COVINGTON — Located minutes from Highway 18, Maple Hills opens for sales this weekend with the release of 10 flat homesites.

Local builder Garrette Custom Homes is offering a variety of one- and two-story floor plans.

According to Bill McCaffrey, the project manager at Maple Hills, the unique purchasing proposition lies in the large rambler plans that are available.

“These large homesites were ‘grandfathered’ in under an old zoning code,” he says. “Several lots exceed a quarter-acre, which is a real rarity for new home developments in the urbanized Puget Sound region.”

Several of the single-level designs at Maple Hills are 70 feet wide and include up to 3,756 square feet of open living space and 12-foot ceilings.

Developed by Kirkland-based master-planned developer Oakpointe Communities, Maple Hills features tree-lined boulevard streets and four neighborhood parks.

Garrette Custom Homes is preselling the community from its model home at the Estates at Sugarloaf Mountain in Ravensdale, located 7 miles east on Kent-Kangley Road.

McCaffrey says Garrette Custom Homes was attracted to Maple Hills by the opportunity to build large homes with rambler floor plans “that shifting demographics are making so desirable.”

“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.

On March 5, Garrette Custom Homes will host a Homebuilding 101 seminar for those who are interested in having a custom home built. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon in the model home at the Estates at Sugarloaf Mountain.
