SAMMAMISH — Hula performances, tropical refreshments and a meet-and-greet with the Disney character Moana are all part of the grand opening celebration of a new model home at Canterbury Park.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 4, and features tours of the fully decorated model home, the Stuart. The Moana meet-and-greet will be from noon to 3 p.m.

The Stuart model home has a farmhouse façade with three bedrooms, a large upstairs bonus room, 2.5 bathrooms and 2,866 square feet of living space. The home was professionally decorated by HRI Design.

“It’s a classic home that’s formal in style, with pops of color throughout,” says Michelle Buster, a designer at HRI Design. “When you walk in the front door, you come into a really beautiful entryway with designer sconces and trim detail that accentuates the space.”

The entryway leads to a great room that flows into an open dining area and chef’s kitchen with island. “We designed the space with Caesarstone countertops, a hand-painted backsplash, gray cabinetry and gray-washed hardwood flooring,” says Buster.

There is a convenient mudroom connecting the kitchen to a two-car garage. This has a walk-in pantry, open shelving and a built-in bench with cabinets. It’s the ideal “drop zone” where homeowners can hang coats, store paperwork and charge devices, Buster says.

Upstairs, the Stuart model features three bedrooms and an open loft, as well as a bonus room. The loft at the top of the stairs was designed as a sitting area for reading, relaxing, playing games and entertaining. The adjoining bonus room allows for a large sectional and can serve as a work area with a desk and chair, and as a second TV room for gaming or movies.

The master bedroom is one of the Stuart’s three bedrooms. It also has a bonus room upstairs.

Another home highlight is the master bedroom, “a sophisticated retreat for adults,” says Buster.

“We wanted homeowners to picture themselves having their own getaway from anything and everything,” she says. “We did a full-height paneling detail on all of the walls and specialty lighting that I think is the jewelry on top of everything.”

The master bathroom is spa-like in presentation with a freestanding tub, separate shower, and white stone flooring and tiling on the walls.

While the Stuart floor plan gives homeowners a look at a fully designed model home, most Canterbury Park homes are presale designs, available for personalization. This gives homebuyers the opportunity to work with a designer at the Kirkland Design Studio to choose color palettes, lighting, tiling and flooring packages, and hardware that adds a special touch to their homes.

Homebuyers are encouraged to talk to sales managers about the many home floor plans and personalization opportunities during the grand-opening event.

“Homebuyers should definitely come and see the new model home and take a look at the community this weekend,” says Jamie Ham, the community sales manager.

Canterbury Park is set on 26 acres of open space with three community parks and a scenic walking trail. Children can attend Lake Washington schools, including Rachel Carson Elementary, Inglewood Middle School and Eastlake High School.
