Rob Rice Homes campus peak-001The new Rob Rice Homes Community in Campus Peak is one of the most picturesque spots in the entire South Sound area, overlooking the rolling hills of The Woodlands Course at the Golf Club at Hawks Prairie, a unique 36-hole golf facility in the Pacific Northwest. In addition, the neighborhood is framed by tall, stately pines and borders a future five-acre Lacey City Park.

“I am proud to have sold many great homes built by Rob Rice in several beautiful neighborhoods,” says Vonna Madeley one of the Realtors who represents the homes built by the area’s top builder. “But this is one of the prettiest neighborhoods he has ever built.”

Campus Peak has just opened its doors for your choice of lots and scenic views. The community’s gently rolling hills and meandering streets mean each lot has a unique elevation and view of the gorgeous surroundings. With a variety of sites available, you can pick your lot in a pre-sale and decide from the many premium features that are standard in a Rob Rice Home so you can build your home beyond even what you have imagined. There are also a number of homes currently under construction that will be ready for occupancy by the end of the year. You can trust that the design team selected all the materials to coordinate beautifully, so you don’t NEED to go through the pre-sale process to have a stunning home!

Ideally located

Campus Peak is located in the master-planned community of Meridian Campus. It is a highly-desired location in the South Sound area because of its rich tree-lined streets, many forested trails, several city parks and two golf courses all within minutes of I-5 and conveniently located near Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

The community is also close to convenient shopping with home improvement stores, Costco, and an abundance of other retailers and restaurants all minutes away in the business area of Hawks Prairie.

Luxurious features are standard in these quality homes

Once they pick their special lot in this gorgeous neighborhood, Campus Peak pre-sale homebuyers will have a choice of nine different color schemes for stunning cabinet finishes,  slab granite or quartz countertops, hardwood floor finishes, designer backsplash tile and more, all artfully coordinated by a designer.

“From the ground up people get to personalize their home so it is uniquely theirs,” says Helena Rice who works with the designer to provide the many choices to buyers. “No where else in the area do you get this kind of luxurious choice without paying for upgrades. It often shocks people that they are all included in the price of the home.”

Buyer’s selections for each home also include exterior stone, exterior and interior paints, door styles, carpeting, lighting fixtures and garage doors, all to make the home completely their own.

Six two-story floor plans with thoughtful architectural details are offered at Campus Peak ranging from 1950 sq. ft. to 2692 sq. ft. One plan, known as the Hazel, has a sought-after main floor bedroom suite. Standard features include white trim and millwork and many other quality design details and finishes. Low maintenance yards are fully fenced and exquisitely landscaped, a signature attraction of Rob Rice Communities.

“This isn’t just another neighborhood,” says Vonna. “In Campus Highlands, where Rob has been building homes for the past three years, our typical buyer is purchasing their 2nd, 3rd or maybe even their retirement home. But, in Campus Peak, with prices in the low $300’s, Buyers don’t need to wait. They can have a beautiful home with a stunning golf course view at a price similar to those offered in other neighborhoods without views! So, why wait for retirement for your dream home?”
