I attended an exclusive preview event on Tuesday for the newest townhome project on the eastside – Lake Boren townhomes in Newcastle.
It is a really cool concept and it comes at time when buyers are getting frustrated with the lack of quality inventory on the market. Lake Boren, which is 5 minutes from I-405 is now home to 14 newly completed townhomes with plans of 56 total homes. What is so unique about the property is that it has direct access to the waterfront at an affordable price point. The developer, Continental Properties (Cosmopolitan Condos, Kirkland Central Condos) known for both high-rise development and townhome projects, utilized the waterfront by building a massive outdoor patio with BBQ’s, picnic tables, firepits and kayak access so the owners can enjoy waterfront living.
The 2-3 bedroom homes range from 1,200 t0 1,600 sf. They have an attached garage, large decks, spacious floor plans and quality contemporary finishes. Here is a list of the available floor plans:
|Residence G||(3 bedroom, 3 bath – 1,391 square feet)|
|Residence G-1||(3 bedroom, 3 bath – 1,440 square feet)|
|Residence E-1||(3 bedroom, 2 bath – 1,901 square feet)|
|Residence E-2||(3 bedroom, 2 bath – 1,337 square feet)|
|Residence A-1||(2 bedroom, 2 bath – 1,208 square feet)|
|Residence C-1||(2 bedroom, 2 bath – 1,255 square feet)|
I thought the units were great and its a prefect option for someone looking to move to Bellevue/Eastside, but wanting to avoid 520 and the toll.
Thus far, they have sold 3 units. I’ve included some pictures of the project below.
