BOTHELL — The Parkhurst community will host a “Meet, Greet and Eat” event on Oct. 10. Local celebrity chef John Howie will lead a cooking demonstration from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the kitchen of the community’s model home, as well as present a signed copy of his cookbook, “Passion & Palate,” to the first 100 guests.

“We’re really excited about having John Howie here at Parkhurst,” says Susan Meadows, the community’s sales manager. “He’s the acclaimed chef of Seastar and John Howie Steak, and he recently opened the Beardslee Public House, which is in Beardslee Village, right down the street from our community. We’re celebrating that new relationship.”

The cooking demonstrations will take place in Parkhurst’s professionally decorated model home, which features the 3,830-square-foot Enatai floor plan. Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the home, and learn about other homes available at Parkhurst, built by Toll Brothers.

Meadows says that every home at Parkhurst includes the opportunity for personalization, enabling buyers to pick flooring, paint colors and finishes with the help of an interior designer at the builder’s design studio.

The Beaumont design will make its debut at Parkhurst this weekend, providing visitors a first look at the community’s newest five-bedroom, three-bath floor plan. Homes with the Beaumont plan are available for presale, Meadows says.

“This would be a great floor plan for a big family,” she says. “It offers a bit more square footage and variation, with a large bonus room upstairs and a nicely sized bedroom on the main floor.”

The Beaumont has separate living and dining spaces, as well as an open-concept kitchen that flows into a family room.

Upstairs, the master suite spans an entire side of the home and features a master bath and walk-in closet. There are three bedrooms and a laundry room upstairs, as well.

Parkhurst is located adjacent the University of Washington Bothell campus. It offers southeasterly views of the Cascade Mountains and includes expansive homesites and a community park.

The community is located minutes from the retail conveniences in downtown Bothell.

“People are thrilled about all the new restaurants and changes that Bothell has to offer with the downtown revitalization,” Meadows says. “They’re excited that now there’s amazing food and a lot of retail right down the street. Parkhurst offers walkability to almost everything, giving it more of an urban feel.”

The community is located within the Northshore School District, and children will attend Maywood Hills Elementary, Canyon Park Junior High and Bothell High School. Parkhurst has a walking path connecting directly to the elementary school.

“I think people are excited that there are a lot of families in the community,” Meadows says. “It’s fun to see the kids running around and making friends. I think it’s also fun for the adults to see that this is a community of great people.”
