A huge master-planned community was recently unveiled at the southern end of the Puget Sound. San Jose-based UCP Inc., a company dealing with homebuilding and land development, announced its The Preserve at Turnwater Place in Turnwater, Wash. This will be the developer’s first for-sale community in the state’s real estate market.
The developer located the sprawling project over 120 acres at 8856 Yarrow Court Southeast. It will include two different single-family-oriented suites of products, namely The Bainbridge Collection and The Blakely Collection. The homes will be constructed by a wholly owned subsidiary of UCP, Benchmark Communities. Plans call for eight single-level and two-story floor plans catering to different style and cost preferences. The Preserve will total 544 residential units at full build-out.
Homes at the community will range between 1,550 and 3,300 square feet, with the largest offering six bedrooms and three baths. Prices for the single-family homes at Turnwater Place start at around $200,000. The homes will use top-notch materials and feature open-island kitchens, nine-foot first floor ceilings, covered outdoor spaces, hardwood flooring and gas fireplaces.
The community is located in close proximity to the I-5 freeway, in the coveted Turnwater school district. The area offers a suite of recreational activities, with the Puget Sound, Nisqually Basin, as well as a number of lakes, parks and walking trails in the vicinity.
