Homeowners and buyers alike gathered at Pioneer East, a new construction area in Ridgefield, last weekend for a glimpse of what local building and design trends this summer.
The Pioneer East tour was one piece of the 2019 New Homes Tour around Clark County which was put on by Fairway Mortgage and featured newly built houses in La Center, Orchards and most prominently, Ridgefield.
At Pioneer East, princesses guided viewers in and throughout houses as burgers were served and music played outside.
Located east of Interstate 5 and off 259th street, Pioneer East was built by Cedars Construction in 2018 and partnered with Parker Brennan Real Estate’s Live Northwest team.
“Ridgefield is among the fastest growing cities in the state of Washington. It is also voted as one of the safest cities through multiple studies,” Anthony Rego of Live Northwest said when asked about the area. “Even with all the growth that’s happening it’s (Ridgefield) still keeping its small town charm.”
Every home in the neighborhood comes standard with a microwave, oven/stove and dishwasher as well as gas fireplaces, tankless water heaters and central air conditioning.
“Popular add ons would be wrapping the whole windows, built-ins around the fireplace and under cabinet lighting,” Jason Presser of Fairway Mortgage said. “But the soft close doors throughout the house are standard, appliances are standard, granite countertops or quartz countertops are standard.”
Realator.com places the Pioneer East neighborhood at a median sale price of $385,000 and all the houses in the neighborhood lie within Ridgefield School District.
According to the Live Northwest website, the Pioneer East neighborhood has a monthly fee of $40 for the Homeowners Association and has access to a neighborhood commons and basketball court.
