“When we first moved in, I was walking around my home like a kid in a toy store,” says MacGregor Hill. “I found built-in speakers, cabinets that soft close – just all of those thoughtful aspects you don’t think to add when you’re building your own home.”
When MacGregor and Taryn Hill stopped by Tri Pointe’s Bainbridge Island community for a quick look at a model, they’d been looking for a year, dreaming of a forever home with room to start a family and host gatherings like Thanksgiving.
They wanted a home in a great community that was move-in ready, without sacrificing the must-haves on their list, like a large welcoming island in the kitchen for entertaining, a big backyard, and a separate space for Taryn to practice yoga.
“The homes we’d looked at previously had some elements we liked, but ultimately had some sort of ‘but factor’,” says MacGregor. “For example, the kitchen was great, BUT the yard was super small, or the yard was great, BUT the kitchen was too small, etc. Tri Pointe Homes checked off everything on our list.”
The short move-in timeline for their Move-in Ready Home was also attractive. With colors, features, and finishes hand-selected by a team of experts, their move-in ready masterpiece was already nearly finished, with exactly what they needed.
“Everything that Tri Pointe picked out was great – we couldn’t have picked it out better ourselves,” says Taryn. “We thought it was going to take forever to buy a home and were ecstatic when we found out there was a choice with a shorter timeline and the features we wanted.”
They were delighted by the luxurious features they didn’t even think to include. An array of features and state-of-the-art technology come standard in all Tri Pointe communities, along with exceptional support from a team of experts, before and after move in. “Tri Pointe was fantastic at every step – even after we unpacked, it really felt like they wanted us to be happy in our home and community,” says Taryn.
After move-in, the couple grew to appreciate their community just as much as their home. Offering a picturesque ferry commute to Seattle, easy access to the water and outdoor recreation, and a welcoming community park right across the street.
