KIRKLAND — Willows Bluff is entering its final selling phase and, according to sales manager Anne-Vija Nelson, the community has saved its best for last.

“We only have a handful of homes left, so we encourage homebuyers to visit soon,” she says. “There are three unique home designs still available, including some with expansive Sammamish Valley and Cascade Mountain views.

“With the recent rise in interest rates, now is the best time to purchase, before the rates go up again.”

Three of the remaining home designs feature daylight-basement plans, which include the Columbia and Elliott.

“Our homeowners love the extra space of our daylight basements with oversize windows and 9-foot ceilings,” says Nelson. “There’s an entire bedroom suite as well, so if family is staying for an extended period of time, it’s the perfect guest accommodation. Alternatively, the bedroom could be converted into a home office or a media room.”

The Elliott features a Craftsman exterior design with 3,424 square feet of living space that includes five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. It has a two-story dining room, a private library, and a great room that is lined with windows. It also has an expansive deck overlooking the open backyard.

Nelson says the Elliott’s kitchen offers the opportunity for personalization by the homebuyer. “This plan offers an optional kitchen layout that expands the island, provides extra cabinetry and gives you the space to add a prep sink. Chefs will appreciate the bonus prep and additional storage space.”

The Elliott’s upstairs offers three auxiliary bedrooms and a master suite with an oversize walk-in closet. “One of the available Elliott homes will have beautiful, picturesque views of the Cascade Mountain range and valley from the master,” says Nelson.

The Columbia design features a traditional exterior and more than 3,500 square feet of living space. It is available with five or six bedrooms. The home has an open great room with a fireplace adjacent to the kitchen.

“A lot of people are adding beautiful personalization to their fireplaces, including intricate tile work that looks very attractive,” says Nelson. “Homebuyers can also personalize an array of additional features in the Columbia and all our designs for that matter, including flooring, hardware, lighting and paint colors, through our design studio in Kirkland.”

The Columbia plan has a main-level bedroom or home office with an adjacent three-quarter bath. The upper level includes the master bedroom, three additional bedrooms and a bonus room.

Willows Bluff’s centralized Kirkland location offers access to Interstate 405 and Highway 520 for commutes to Seattle, Everett and the airport. It is also within close proximity to area employers such as Microsoft, Google and Amazon.

“Being so close to Belle-vue, Redmond and Bothell gives us so many nearby restaurants and shopping options,” Nelson says. “Our location is served by the highly acclaimed schools in the Lake Washington School District.”

Children living at Willows Bluff can attend John Muir Elementary, Kamiakin Junior High School and Juanita High School.
