My wife and I just did a fairly exhaustive search for a single story/low newish house here in the Redmond, WA area. 65 years old. We ended up buying (have not moved in yet) a house in the Trilogy at Redmond Ridge development. The homes in this development were built between about 2003 and 2012 or so. The larger ones are about 23-2600 sq ft. They all (I think) have 2 car (and a few 3 car) garages. Almost all of the homes have very small (almost non-existent) back yards. The people we have met there so far seem to love the place. The larger homes go for about 850,000 to 1.1 million dollars (pretty steep!). They have 250 a month HOA dues.

Rwgreenberg,
Thank you for your input! The only reason I hadn’t considered Redmond is my husband’s potential commute to his prospective office in Kent. I should like very much to live north of Kent but am concerned that it would set hubby up for the grind he has endured here for nearly 12 years. Many day the commute stacks up to two hours each way; I’ve read that Seattle traffic is beastly as well and with Amazon moving to Bellvue, well, I can’t imagine that the route between Redmond and Kent will get any easier. Do you have any thoughts on that and/or any experience with the rush hour drive time between Redmond and Kent? We have some acquaintances farther north and I suspect we would get to see more of them were we not so far flung. My husband wakes at 4:30 each weekday morning and is out of the house by 5 am sharp and still his commute of 29 miles averages 80 minutes on a good day. As we get older and his leadership position becomes more demanding we very much need to curb that commute time.

Trilogy sounds wonderful; I believe it’s one of the places I’ve read about during my research of the options. I’m going to give it a closer look at your recommendation. We are fine with the non existent back yards...less to maintain!

I appreciate your posting; thank you again.

Yes. I agree. The commute would be a beast. The traffic out here is very bad during rush hours. On the bright side - not bad at all outside of rush hours (NYC and vicinity was bad ALL the time).
