Presidio Residential Capital and Summit Homes of Washington broke ground this month on Jazz Run, a 19-home community on 6.22 acres at 23121 S.E. 48th Street in Issaquah. A grand opening will be held in summer 2016. The retail value of this residential community will exceed $15 million.
"Don White and his staff continue to find these rare and desirable properties in some of the most sought after communities in the Seattle metropolitan area," said Paul Faye, Asset Manager for Presidio Residential Capital. "We look forward to another successful partnership with Summit Homes Washington."
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom Craftsman-style homes on lots ranging from 5,335 to 6,800 square feet will feature open floor plans, granite slab counters with full-height backsplashes, hardwood floors, fireplaces, daylight basements, covered decks and two- to three-car garages. Residents will have access to open space with green belts. The homes will be priced in the $800,000s.
"Nestled at the base of the Cascade Mountains, Jazz Run will be close enough to Seattle and Bellevue to take advantage of one of the world's most dynamic metropolitan regions, yet far enough out to be mere footsteps from the spectacular 'Issaquah Alps,'" said Tim Easter, vice president of sales and marketing for Summit Homes of Washington.
With top-rated schools, a brand new hospital, unique amenities and a bustling business scene, Issaquah is known as a place of innovation, adventure, family values and a strong focus on outdoor recreation and environmental stewardship. A new community college campus is in the works, and the community will offer easy access to major employers, including Costco Wholesale, Swedish Medical, Microsoft, SanMar, Siemens and Darigold. Located at the intersection of I-90 and State Route 900, the community will be served by the King County Metro public transit system.
A family-focused community, Issaquah boasts one of the state's highest-performing school districts with a high school graduation rate of 93 percent. Sunset magazine named Issaquah "Best Burb," and Family Circle included it as one of the "Best Towns for Families." With its proximity to Lake Sammamish State Park and the Cascade Mountains as well as eclectic shopping, the area offers a plethora of recreational opportunities.
Jazz Run is Presidio and Summit Homes of Washington's fifth project in King County, where there's less than a two-month supply of new and existing homes for sale. The companies are also developing Pickering Place, a $4.3 million, 20-home community in Issaquah; Ivy Estates, a $1.3 million, nine-home community in Sammamish; Cedarbrook, a $2 million, nine-home community in Kirkland; and Canyon Terrace, a 70-home community in Renton.
According to the National Association of Home Builders' formula to determine the local impact of single-family housing in typical metro areas, adding 19 single-family homes will generate $5.4 million in local income, $684,000 in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 75 local jobs.
