Two New Dream Home Plans for the Holidays!

Just in time for the holidays, Rob Rice Homes has introduced two stunning new plans for “downstairs master” homes. The Aspen  and the Cottonwood are now offered at his communities of Evergreen Heights and The Villages at South Hill in Puyallup adding to the seven other choices of homes with a master suite on the first floor and luxury features throughout for fun, family and gracious hospitality.

“These master-down plans are very popular, we can barely keep up with demand,” says Heather Keating, the Realtor who represents Rob Rice Homes at The Villages. “We look forward to being able to offer more new choices with the same quality construction and craftsmanship everyone expects from a Rob Rice Home.”

Rob Rice is one of the few local builders that has a wide array of rambler and downstairs master floor plans that have become increasingly popular among empty nesters, retirees and those millennials looking for the perfect home to raise a family. The Best of South Sound builder continues to add to his many selections in response to the desires of his buyers, many of whom are repeat customers.

Rob Rice already offers the Spruce, Poplar, and Hazel models that had been in such huge demand that he recently introduced Pine. They are all gorgeous two-story homes with master bedrooms on the main floor. Luxury ramblers known as the Juniper and McKinley have all of their living on one floor.

“There are few days that we don’t have people visit our communities who want a down- stairs master plan,” say Jessica Volkman, our Realtor at Evergreen Heights. “People that own them are thrilled and love the lifestyle they offer.”

New plans to meet demand

The brand new plans, Cottonwood (2509 sq ft) and Aspen (2492 sq ft), both feature three bedrooms with the master on the main floor, a spacious great room with vaulted ceilings, and a coveted oversized loft that can serve as a playroom, office, library, fitness or media room or for whatever suits your lifestyle. An additional bedroom on the main floor gives you the option for a home office or den.

“In my communities, homeowners are building their forever homes and want a plan that will give them the master bedroom on the main floor and open space on the second level,” says Rob. “I feel like I am responding by adding more and more of these plans.”

Each home sparkles with beautiful designer finishes including a gourmet kitchen with Alder cabinets, stainless steel appliances, slab granite or quartz countertops, and gleaming hardwood entry floors, all standard features included in the price of the home.

Their luxurious master suites have 5-piece baths with soaking tubs and double sinks with deco-tile backsplash. The homes have extra large windows, impressive front entries, white millwork and open great rooms making them light, bright and spacious—a must-see for entertainers!

For variety in both communities’ streetscapes, these two homes have varying elevation, unique exterior architectural details, options for the exterior stonework and a large variety of exterior paint colors so that no two homes look alike.
