MOUNT VERNON — Woodside is offering a first look at its fully furnished model home this weekend. Homes at the Skagit Valley community are designed for active adults ages 55 or older.

Landed Gentry Homes and Communities is building the new line of homes at Woodside with open and flexible layouts that make living easier, says Brian Gentry, the company’s president.

“We listened to our clients in recent years who were seeking thoughtfully designed, smaller spaces for their next home,” he says. “Woodside expands what we can offer, both in size and price range.”

Homes at Woodside are slightly smaller than other homes built by Landed Gentry, with sizes ranging from 1,299 to 2,256 square feet. The stand-alone homes have mostly single-level designs, and individual yard maintenance is covered by the homeowners’ association.

While the community is still under construction, Gentry says potential buyers can get a preview by visiting the model home this weekend.

Featuring the Juniper floor plan, the 1,647-square-foot model home has three bedrooms and three baths, and features an available loft option. The master suite and second bedroom/office are on the main level, and upstairs is the third bedroom, as well as a guest suite or hobby space.

Interiors feature vaulted ceilings, hardwood flooring, granite kitchen countertops, solid wood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances.

“Each home is built with quality of life in mind,” Gentry says. “Most homes are single-level, and each one features comfortable, easy-care finishes. A select number of homesites back up to protected woodland areas and stream corridors, creating a private and uniquely Northwest feel.”

Nestled in the foothills of the Skagit Valley, Woodside has convenient access to hiking in the North Cascades or the area’s state and local parks; and fishing in the Skagit River and Puget Sound. There is also a vibrant arts scene, including local exhibits, arts museums and performances staged at McIntyre Hall.

The community is located near Skagit Valley Hospital, as well as grocery stores and other shopping options. There are theaters, restaurants and other attractions nearby. The neighboring cities of La Conner and Anacortes have plenty to explore, too.
