SAMMAMISH — The Overlook at Brookshire celebrates the grand opening of its new model home with a back-to-school salmon bake on Oct. 15 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will feature face painting, backpack charm-making, a dessert station and light snacks, including salmon bites.

Guests are also invited to tour the community’s newly designed three-story Sidney model, a 2,600-square-foot home with three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and a bonus media room. The home features a “tuxedo” design theme, fashioned by Mana Lanning of award-winning Ryan Young Interiors.

“We utilized a formal, black-and-white color palette throughout with brass metal sconces, fixtures and designer lighting,” says Lanning. “It feels light and fresh, but it has just enough contrast to make it pop.”

The home’s main entry and garage is on the first floor, which also includes a media room with a full bath that can also serve as an additional gathering space or a private guest suite. Lanning has designed the space as a casual theater room with an oversize television and warm family-room furniture.

The interior of the model has been decorated with a black-and-white “tuxedo” theme.

The home’s open second floor has a great room with the living room, dining room and kitchen flowing together. The kitchen has black cabinetry with brass hardware and light Caesarstone countertops highlighted by a waterfall edge. The living room features a fireplace made of off-white stack stone with a black mantle, tying together the design theme from room to room.

“The main living area has a lot of ‘wow’ factor,” says Anne McIntosh, the sales manager at The Overlook at Brookshire. “It has boxed beam ceilings with a black edging that looks amazing. The dining room is very chic, with crocodile patterned leather and metal chairs and a black-and-white banana leaf rug. There are a lot of beautiful details throughout.”

The third floor has two auxiliary bedrooms, as well as a master suite with custom built-ins and a walk-in boutique-style closet, designed in collaboration with California Closets.

A focal point is the master bedroom’s headboard wall, a conversation piece incorporating a square graphic, mimicking the home’s exterior architecture.

The master bathroom features white marble flooring and arabesque glass mosaic tiling in the shower, complemented by contrasting black cabinetry. There is also a modern freestanding soaking tub.

“We’ve been walking people through our model and the response has been very strong,” says McIntosh. “There is a lot of interest in this community because of the location and the schools.”

Located on the border between Issaquah and Sammamish and overlooking 7 acres of open protected space, The Overlook at Brookshire is close to I-90 for commutes to major employment centers in Bellevue and Seattle.

Children can attend Sunny Hills Elementary, Pacific Cascade Middle School and Issaquah High School.

“We have a handful of daylight-basement homes left in our community that I encourage people to consider,” says McIntosh. “Homebuyers who purchase in the presale stage have the opportunity to personalize their home at the Kirkland Design Studio with custom paint colors, hardware, lighting and more.”
