MOUNT VERNON — Construction is underway at Woodside, a neighborhood for homebuyers ages 55 and older. Built by Landed Gentry Homes, the active-adult community is unveiling eight new homesites this weekend.

The stand-alone homes are primarily single-level designs and will feature open layouts that range in size from 1,392 to 2,624 square feet. Prices start at $328,900.

Each home at Woodside features three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a finished two-car garage. Individual yard maintenance is covered by the homeowners’ association. A private community lodge and park are planned for construction next year.

“We listened to our clients in recent years who were seeking thoughtfully designed homes with smaller spaces for their next home,” says Brian Gentry, the president of Landed Gentry Homes. “Woodside expands what we can offer both in size and price range. Landed Gentry has designed each home to help make living easier.”

Woodside’s newest fully furnished model, the Madrona, is a 1,846-square-foot single-level home on a corner lot. It has bedrooms, a den/office and two bathrooms. The great-room layout features a kitchen that opens to the living and dining rooms. French doors lead to the light-filled den, which is centrally located near the main living areas.

The home features a grey-and-white color palette. White cabinetry and millwork, weathered grey hardwood flooring and light-colored granite countertops combine to create a cozy and inviting space.

The furnished Juniper Loft model home is also available to tour this weekend.

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

“Nestled in the Skagit Valley, natural beauty abounds and there is never a shortage of things to see and do. From hiking the nearby North Cascades or the many state and local parks, to fishing the Skagit River and nearby Puget Sound, there is an abundance of outdoor activities.”

The area features a vibrant arts scene, with local exhibits, museums and performances staged at McIntyre Hall and other venues.
