ISSAQUAH — One home with the Whistler with Basement floor plan remains for sale at Pinecrest at Issaquah Highlands. The 4,300-square-foot design recently received the 2015 Tribute Award for “Contemporary Exceptional Elevation Over 3,000 Square Feet” from the New Home Council.

The Whistler with Basement home serves as the model home at Pinecrest at Issaquah Highlands. It has five bedrooms, 4.5 baths and views of Mount Baker and Lake Sammamish.

First-floor amenities include a kitchen with a center island and breakfast bar that overlooks the family room and dining room. There is a secluded bedroom that provides privacy for overnight guests or the opportunity for conversion into a home office.

“The Whistler with Basement is the only floor plan that has a bedroom and a bathroom on the main floor,” says sales manager Rita Pettit. “That’s a very unique and convenient feature for families.”

The lower level has an open recreation room, making it ideal for hosting large gatherings.

“When people tour the Whistler with Basement, this is the space they love the most,” says Pettit. “It looks like the ultimate gentleman’s grotto with a pool table, a built-in wet bar and beautiful furniture.”

On the second level, the model home offers three bedrooms and a loft that provides a secondary living space. The master bedroom has a double-door entry to the master bathroom, and offers lake and mountain views.

“With its sleek, clean lines, the Northwest-contemporary exterior of the Whistler with Basement has a striking, modern look,” Pettit says. “The home is also available in a Shingle or Farmhouse façade for those who prefer a more traditional exterior design.”

The flexibility to choose the style of the façade is a rare opportunity, she says. Buyers can also work with a designer to personalize the interior of their home by choosing their color palettes, flooring, cabinetry and more.

“I encourage interested homebuyers to tour our model home and get a feel for what their home’s possibilities could look like,” Pettit says. “There are also several homes that look out onto our 4.2 acres of protected greenbelt.”

Pettit says that buyers on an abbreviated timeline can consider a home with the Bryant design, which will be available for move-in by next spring.

“It’s a corner homesite and has a grand circular staircase that really makes an entry statement,” she says. “It also has a remarkable open kitchen with sliding doors to the side yard.”

Children can attend Clark Elementary School, Issaquah Middle School and Issaquah High School.

“Homeowners at Pinecrest will appreciate the community’s proximity to retail at Issaquah Highlands, which is within walking distance,” Pettit says.

Guest visiting Pinecrest at Issaquah Highlands on Sunday can enjoy complimentary drinks from a latte cart from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
