Finding your dream home that embodies all the features you’re looking for can be a challenge. In the growing city of Lacey, Rob Rice Homes is excited to introduce the third phase of building in Steilacoom Ridge, a neighborhood conveniently located near I-5 and many wonderful local amenities, yet also quietly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of errands, traffic and commutes. Steilacoom Ridge features gorgeous homes in a variety of sizes and layouts; it is the perfect place to settle down and buy your dream home.
Rambler Style Dream Homes
Rob Rice Homes’ Steilacoom Ridge provides luxurious living at an affordable price. Featuring impeccable details throughout, our rambler homes highlight handcrafted elegance both inside and out.
The development’s rambler layouts provide ample space, as well as a modern look, combined with the practicality necessary for everyday living. With three different design options, you can enjoy an open floor plan without sacrificing valuable living space.
To distinguish each of our rambler dream homes apart, each Rob Rice Homes’ model is named after a tree, followed by a number that indicates the number of square feet included:
- Juniper 1732
- Hemlock 1856
- Redwood 1942
All of our rambler models feature:
- Welcoming open space
- A beautiful great room with inviting vaulted ceilings
- Hardwood floors throughout the entryway, kitchen & dining areas
- A breathtaking kitchen with ample room to entertain and prepare all your favorite meals
What makes each of our Steilacoom Ridge rambler models distinctive?
You will be swept off your feet as you walk into the double cathedral entryway of the Juniper 1732 and are greeted with inviting elegance.
Take delight in cooking in a spacious kitchen that is also conducive to hosting family & friends. In both Redwood 1942 and Juniper 1732 models, granite or quartz counters sit atop a convenient eating bar featuring stylish beech cabinets, which are available in numerous stain colors.
For serious home cooks looking for more counter space to prepare meals, the Hemlock 1856 has a large island perfect for many day-to-day activities including prepping ingredients you’re preparing to cook, a space to place delicious appetizers or party platters for your guests, or a central location for the kids to work on homework while you get dinner ready. All three Steilacoom Ridge plans come with modern stainless steel appliances, creating a polished look and practical space that tie the room together beautifully.
Our rambler style dream homes in Lacey are designed for you and your family to relax and enjoy your new space. Unlike most rambler designs, privacy is not sacrificed with these single-story floorplans. They feature three bedrooms, with the option to turn one into a comfortable den or productive home office.
As you enter your private master bedroom, feel a sense of tranquility as you are welcomed with ample natural lighting, a large walk-in closet, and a sleek 5-piece bathroom featuring a soaking tub and double sinks.
Intricate details are designed into every one of Rob Rice Homes, both inside and out. We take pride in showcasing beautifully crafted ramblers with an attractive color palette that coordinates throughout the property. Enjoy the graceful backyard design, hosting your next gathering on a comfortable and spacious covered patio. Each property includes full privacy fencing and professional landscaping in both the front and backyards, making them easy to maintain and perfect for any party.
Master Level Dream Homes
Another feature that can’t be rivaled in the Steilacoom Ridge neighborhood is our four main-floor master plans you can choose between!
- Our Pine 2457 plan provides a breathtaking entryway with stylish flair. As with all our models, the entryway leads to a spacious great room, and a chef’s kitchen featuring sleek stainless appliances, granite or quartz counters, beech cabinets, and crystal-clear double-paned windows. In addition to the stunning design details, these dream homes in Lacey also include a large master bedroom suite and five-piece bathroom featuring a walk-in closet, so you can relax in comfort.
Similar to our traditional rambler styles, both the Aspen 2492 and Cottonwood 2509 are designed with the master bedroom on the main level, as well as an additional bedroom on the same floor that can easily be used as a multi-purpose space. A spacious loft and additional bedroom upstairs give these homes flexible storage and plenty of versatility.
- The Spruce 2445 floorplan is a popular choice for residents in Steilacoom Ridge. This option provides a distinctive twist: three bedrooms and an additional bonus room on the second level, which is perfect for families that want extra space for entertainment, games or visiting guests.
No matter which floorplan you choose, you’ll appreciate the quality and detail put into each Steilacoom Ridge home in phase three of this Rob Rice Homes neighborhood.
