NORTH BEND — What’s a summer without a block party? Mountain Vista at Cedar Falls community is ushering in the season with a block party on June 22, from noon to 5 p.m. The “Rock the Block” event will showcase the grand opening of the community’s mountain-modern model home, the Salish.

The afternoon promises fun for the whole family, including a climbing wall, gourmet pizza truck, cookie ice cream sandwiches and giveaways. It also coincides with the builder’s “Beautiful, New and Waiting for You” campaign, which runs until June 30 and offers incentives on select Toll Brothers quick-delivery homes across the region.

At Mountain Vista, homebuyers are invited to tour the Salish model home, a 3,267-square-foot design with a two-car garage, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Mana Lanning of Ryan Young Interiors designed the interior of the home, which affords luxurious living with an “intelligent, yet elegant aesthetic,” she says.

The Salish’s welcoming covered entry and inviting foyer open to a striking two-story family room enhanced by a radiant wall of windows. Black iron beams in the vaulted ceiling lend an industrial vibe, and a modern fireplace adorned is in chevron tiling.

There is also a first-floor guest room with a mountain lodge look that has a pitched ceiling and a fireplace.

“The Salish floor plan is a stunner. Everyone loves it because of the soaring, open feeling,” says Susan Meadows, the community’s sales manager. “I also love the covered outdoor living area with its beautiful fireplace, which offers homeowners the opportunity to be outside all year.”

The Salish’s open kitchen has a large center island with iron pendant lighting and a custom hood that encapsulates the stove. There is abundant counter and cabinet space, a sizable walk-in pantry, and an adjacent bright breakfast nook.

Venturing upstairs, a minimalist stair railing features paneled glass encased in iron and walnut wood. An oversize chandelier makes a statement over the stairs with cascading upside-down candles.

The master bedroom is highlighted by an elevated tray ceiling, dual walk-in closets and a deluxe master bath with a dual-sink vanity, large soaking tub, luxe glass-enclosed shower, linen closet and private water closet. Tiling features quartzite stone in hexagon patterns.

There are two auxiliary bedrooms upstairs, as well as a loft that overlooks the great room. The loft has textured white-washed paneling and walnut detailing. Black iron and bronze finishes are peppered throughout, as well as designer Restoration Hardware lighting.

“This is a chance to see the luxury Toll Brothers offers. It’s a treasure chest of ideas,” says Meadows.

She says there are several presale homes available, for which buyers can choose their own finishes. They can work with a professional designer at the Kirkland Design Studio to personalize their home to their individual taste.

The Mountain Vista at Cedar Falls community is 50 percent sold. “Many remaining homes have mountain views at an impressive price point under a million dollars,” says Meadows. “It’s such a cool vibe, this area. It has easy freeway access and stunning beauty all around.”
