Located 60 minutes east of Issaquah off I-90, Trailside’s communities are designed for people seeking access to an urban job market as well as a relaxed mountain lifestyle, he says.
“Collectively, our team has called the central Cascades home for hundreds of years, but, like others who own a home here, we also have roots in the city and understand the pursuit of a work-life balance,” Northrop says. “If you want a home that combines modern convenience with the privacy and intimacy of a wooded retreat, we have a place for you.”
Trailside is selling homes in four communities: Woods & Steele, Suncadia Resort, Meadow Ridge and Ponderosa Pines. Options range from move-in-ready and predesigned homes to completely customized residences. There is an in-house brokerage service, and a team of homebuilding specialists is available to assist prospective buyers throughout the process.
Living in the central Cascades offers both full- and part-time Trailside homeowners with a range of year-round recreation, including access to trails and USFS land for hiking, biking, skiing and motorized exploration.
