Buyers find flexible living with affordable pricing.

“Our homes have something for everyone. Whether you like to entertain friends and family or need that extra room for a long-stay guest. Our homes are spacious enough to accommodate their needs.” Rick Seddon, Sales Manager of Oakridge Homes said about launching the new Oakridge product.

Newland partnered with Oakridge Homes to design functional floorplans at an affordable price based on the Tehaleh shopper. Before launching the new neighborhood surrounding Big Sky Park, Newland conducted in depth research of Tehaleh shoppers from Pierce and King County to understand what design features are important to them when shopping for their next home.

Those learnings helped the team focus on convenient features that would make a large impact in day-to-day living such as larger closets, extra space in the garage for storage or a work area, an out-of-the-way place for kids to drop their bags as well as take off your boots after a long day. The cooking enthusiast will appreciate the focus on the kitchen with large islands as a focal point for hosting as well as ample counter and storage space. There is also a plan featuring single-level living with the primary bedroom on the main floor which is important for those looking at the next stage of their life or flexible as a guest suite for visitors. The homes were designed to maximize the square footage to appeal to a variety of buyers, whether it’s a growing family with young children or a snowbird who wants a low maintenance yard. Oakridge Homes situated their homes where many of them overlook the newest community amenity, Big Sky Park.

“Each home capitalizes on the nearby park or beautiful tree-lined backdrop of Tehaleh. We incorporated the outdoor living feature into each home to bring the beauty of the community right into the home. Being in such close proximity to the new park, it feels like an extension of your home. Who wouldn’t want a park for your backyard?”

Oakridge Homes had a successful launch in 2015, and have nearly sold out of their first neighborhood within the year but are already planning the next neighborhood. “Our buyers will have the room they need at a price that works for them. We were excited to partner with Newland on this project.” Said Seddon.
