This week’s featured new home is a four-bedroom, two-bath rambler in a quiet cul-de-sac in the Highland Court development in Lake Stevens.

Special features include oak flooring, slab granite countertops, ceramic tile surrounds and countertops, a skylight, vaulted ceiling, jetted soaker tub, wood-wrapped windows and an upgraded stainless steel appliance package.

Formal living and dining rooms are situated to the immediate right upon entry.

Adjacent are an island-design kitchen and a family room.

An L-shaped hall leads to the bedroom wing, where three bedrooms are served by a full bathroom and a laundry room, and a private bedroom suite is located at the end of the hall.

Completing the home is an attached, two-car garage enclosed by a single paneled door with privacy glass and wired for electric opener.

A gas fireplace highlights the living room.

It is trimmed with a ceramic tile hearth and border, and framed by a formal wood surround and mantel.

The area above is wired to accommodate a large screen, high-definition television.

Hardwood flooring covers the dining area and extends into the kitchen and family room. The kitchen’s center island is covered with black slab granite and includes a breakfast bar. Other kitchen appointments include custom paneled cabinets, ceramic tile backsplash with glass mosaic tile accents, canned lighting, and a bi-fold door enclosing a pantry.

A sliding glass door opens from the family room to an oversized, backyard patio.

A partial wall, which separates the family room from the hall, includes built-in bookcases and a decorator space.

All three bedrooms are completed with plush carpeting, wood-wrapped windows and oversized closets.

The full bathroom is completed with a shower-tub combination with faux white tile fiberglass surround, a single vanity topped with a tile top and backsplash, and vinyl flooring.

The laundry room, which accesses the garage, has a ventilated wire storage shelf and vinyl flooring.

Features of the roomy bedroom suite include a vaulted ceiling with speed-controlled paddlefan, a walk-in wardrobe closet with multi-tiered wire storage shelves, and two additional closets enclosed with double bifold doors.

The suite’s bathroom has a double vanity topped with ceramic tile, vinyl flooring, a walk-in shower with ceramic tile surround, and a jetted soaker tub beneath a window.
