at Barbee Mill
Talk about a prime piece of real estate.
It’s the point at Barbee Mill, the new upscale community on the shores of Lake Washington where the homes will run up to roughly $3 million.
That lot with its 220 feet of waterfront juts into the lake, commanding views of Renton, Mercer Island, and, best of all, the lake itself.
Now, it’s an expanse of dirt and rock, where eventually two families will live. Already there’s a list of those who want to live in one of what developer Charlie Conner calls “paired homes.”
In a development filled with superlatives, Lot 48 is known as the “most valuable” piece of land, according to Conner. The wait could last awhile; Conner says it’s the last lot he’ll sell. Buildout of the 114 homes will take about four years.
Construction has been under way for about nine months at Barbee Mill. The luxury community draws its name from the mill the Cugini family of Renton owned for about 60 years.
The sales office in what will become the private clubhouse is now open daily by appointment. A grand opening with furnished model homes is planned for June.
By then, Conner will have the new entry to Barbee Mill done, too.
Already, Conner, 52, who lives nearby on the lake and is president of Bellevue-based Conner Homes, has sold about 10 homes. He has met all but one of the buyers, who have come from the Eastside, South King County and out of the area.
Conner has met with prospective buyers in small groups to show them his plans.
Information about the Barbee Mill community is available online at www.lake-washington-living.com.
The sales office is open 12 – 5 p.m. daily, by appointment. Walking tours of Barbee Mill homes and community amenities are also available by appointment by calling 425-687-5849 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
