Showing off the in-house audio system, mud room, wood furnishings and other custom touches, listing agent Dave Mills conducts a tour of the “Craftsman,” a 4000-square-foot spec home recently built atop Snoqualmie Ridge’s highest hill.

Agents with Murray Franklin have been giving prospective buyers tours of three model homes, the first built of a planned 320-home neighborhood called Eagle Pointe. The neighborhood, located at the crest of the Ridge, off Jacobia Street, will include private homes with skyline views and access to the Ridge’s trail system and new parks.

Inside the three homes, Mills pointed out new innovations, such as recycling centers, iPod docks, home theaters and chef’s kitchens, which he described as the newest in home design for 2009. With fewer new homes being built due to the sluggish economy, he said that Eagle Pointe might be one of the few places that home buyers might find such new thinking on display.

“There’s nothing in the marketplace like this,” Mills said, looking at an outdoor pass-through window to facilitate outdoor entertaining in the “Atrium” home’s backyard. “It’s little touches like this, all through the house.”

Homes at Eagle Point are between 2,200 and 4,100 square feet, and are priced between the low $500,000’s and high $600,000’s.

The sales and tours office is open seven days a week, and is located just off Jacobia Street on Frontier Avenue, north of Snoqualmie Parkway.

A celebration of Eagle Pointe’s opening is planned for Saturday and Sunday, March 7 and 8. To learn more about Eagle Pointe, visit www.eaglepointeatsridge.com.
