Make Your Home Uniquely Yours

Buyers who are particular in their taste and are searching for an exquisite home in a picturesque but conveniently-located neighborhood will find what they are looking for in the tucked-away community of Evergreen Heights.

There, buyers can customize their home before it is built with a pre-sale. From the ground up, they have dozens of choices in design and finishes that are standard features at this much sought-after Rob Rice Community.

Stunning area, ideally located

Nestled into gentle hills and framed by lush evergreen pines Evergreen Heights is a short commute to Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) with easy access to I-5.  Despite its woodsy feel and farmland surroundings, the community is within minutes of shopping in the Hawks Prairie business center. There is a nearby golf course, a regional athletic center and it is a one-block walk for the kids to Evergreen Forest Elementary school.

Sidewalks there are convenient for morning runs or evening strolls. Abundant green space preserves the area’s natural feel with a park that provides play space for kids beyond their own ample, fenced yards. Homes are attractively landscaped and built on varying topography that lends to unique venues and privacy for each home.


Make Your Home Uniquely Yours

Buying a home as a “pre-sale” at Evergreen Heights you can pick your lot, choose your floor plan and decide among the choices of 15 different slab granite countertops, 16 hardwood floor finishes, 3 different finishes to alder hardwood cabinets, a choice of carpets, door and window styles, designer backsplash tiles, upscale lighting fixtures, rich exterior stone, and contemporary interior and exterior paint colors.

The many options are all available, without adding to the home’s price unless a buyer chooses to upgrade beyond the builder’s many selections.

“In my 15 years as a Realtor, I have never seen this kind of flexibility with so many choices and premium features without adding cost,” says Jessica Volkman, the community sales manager at EvergreenHeights.


Jessica has observed that the community attracts many who want a top quality home that can be customized to their liking. One woman moved from a home on five acres to her chic rambler to be near her son’s family that lives in a larger two-story home in the neighborhood.

For many retiring military, EvergreenHeights is a perfect “last-stop” location as it has everything in convenience, community, and quality home construction that anyone would ever want to land on and stay put.

And, many visitors to the neighborhood are looking to downsize but upscale their living and find their answer in the homes at EvergreenHeights with all of their quality finishes, fixtures and features.
