If finding the perfect Suncadia property is a dream come true, then finding the right person to make that happen is equally important. At Suncadia, we have a team of brokers who are as passionate about the resort and community they work at as they are about helping families find their dream home. This week, we want to introduce you to Paula Bianchi.
A Seattle native, Paula has more than 25 years experience specializing in second home real estate sales and marketing. “Growing up in Seattle, if you wanted to get out of the rain you had to fly somewhere or drive east,” says Paula who, along with her husband Chuy, drove east to move to Suncadia in 2000 and never looked back. “You drive 80 miles from the city and you are in a completely different climate zone, with different flora and fauna. A Suncadia winter means white fluffy snow and the rest of the time we have 200 plus sunny days!”
Paula has been part of the Suncadia team since its beginning, and has sold hundreds of homes over the years. She even built her own home in the Tumble Creek neighborhood and lives there full-time. One of her biggest joys as a Suncadia broker is introducing new families to the community and welcoming them to their new homes. Currently, Paula has a home listed at 430 Equinox Drive, which she describes as an elegant mountain home that would suit various types of lifestyles. “I could see this being the perfect home for an extended family or perhaps a home two families could buy and share together,” she says.
Featuring four bedrooms, a huge loft and three plus bathrooms spread on 2,873 square feet of living space, the home is located in the Prospector community and features views of fairway 8 of the Prospector golf course. “The home is on a dead end street close to the heart of Suncadia village and the Winery,” says Paula. How close? On foot, it’s just close enough for a quick chat on the way to the winery or the Lodge. It’s a mini adventure on bike for a 10-year-old to the waterslides at the Swim & Fitness Center; an easy scooter-scoot for small legs to the park; a fast huff and puff to the tubing hill and skating rink. “Any family that lives here will love the location,” she says.
Another thing anyone who tours this home will love is the design and attention to detail—think handcrafted railings by local craftsmen, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace in the living room, and French doors that open to a covered patio for entertaining year round. “The home is by 4D Architects, who are known for designing unique mountain homes,” says Paula. Noted for exceptional creativity and commitment to quality, 4D’s designs reflect the ecosystems and culture of the Pacific Northwest.
“It’s a stunning mountain home,” says Paula. “And Suncadia is an awesome community. Here people can be as active and social as they want to be or they can come here to escape the city. There’s literally something for everyone.”
