April Swenson's New Home is Complete
302 Harbor View Lp, Ocean Shores, WA
December 24, 2007

December 24, 2007 ~ My dad and I spent our first night in our new home on Christmas Eve. I had the home decorated for my dad as a surprise and he loved it. We absolutely love this home ~ great area, great floor truly is a beautiful home. This home was built by HiLine and features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2,154 sq.ft. all on one level. Although, HiLine still needs to complete some work (as of January 6, 2008), such as redoing a wall and some drywall, I am very happy to be in my new home. It has been a long and drawn-out affair with my dad and I signing the contract with HiLine on January 5, 2007 and them over 2 months past their contract date of completion. Harbor View Lp is a beautiful setting with trees, lovely surrounding homes, all located by the Bay, Duck Lake and Chinook Park. This home has a great floor plan with a large garage (24' x 24'), an entry hall, a large media room, formal dining room, huge kitchen with kitchen nook, large living room, huge master bedroom, large bathrooms, and a laundry room. Special upgraded features include a unique skylight and ceiling fan in the living room; vaulted ceilings in the living room, kitchen, formal dining room and master bedroom; sliding glass door in the master bedroom; maple trim and cabinets; solid wood doors; higher quality of carpet, vinyl and laminate countertops; real wood blinds; rounded corners (not around the windows); all interior walls insulated; 80-gallon water heater; heat pump (which requires a 3' stem wall instead of the standard 2'); 50-year composition roof; hardi-plank siding; finished and insulated garage with window and man-door; concrete driveway, paths and large patio in the rear. This house has an open floor plan feeling, yet offers some separation between the rooms. From the Entry Hall, open the double doors to the Media Room to watch TV or movies, play games or read. On the opposite side of the entry hall, enter into my large bedroom, which is a nice feature to have one bedroom separate from the other two bedrooms. The entry hall opens up into the Living Room with vaulted ceiling, ceiling fan, a unique 3-opening skylight, and a door to the rear patio. Off the living room lies the large Kitchen with room to put in an island; it also has a vaulted ceiling, plenty of lighting, cabinets and counter space, a small eating bar, pantry, kitchen nook with bay windows, and a partial Bay view. Off the living room and kitchen lies the formal Dining Room with vaulted ceiling and chandelier. From the living room, go down the hall to the Laundry Room and Garage, the Guest Bedroom, and the great Master Bedroom. This Master Bedroom features a vaulted ceiling, sliding glass door to the rear concrete patio, small coat closet, large walk-in closet, and a large Master Bathroom with double vanity, shower and soaking tub. With HiLine, owners get to paint their own house, so we choose a lovely soft yellow and white trim for the exterior, and 7 colors for the interior, which was a big hit with our painter. Our painter did do a great job with the lines separating the colors. White ceilings, light beige for the main color, and accent colors of cinnamon, medium blue, sea foam green, brown, cream, and forest green for a total of 9 colors. I both love being in a large and brand-new home.
