Within Kirkland's coveted, park-filled Houghton neighborhood is a collection of five new modern homes from local, family-owned builder Isola Homes. Five | Lakeview, all of which range from approximately 2,836 to 2,965 square feet, feature sleek, modern finishes with a focus on entertaining (think open-concept living areas and gourmet kitchens) and eco-friendly architectural elements all in a location that's close to restaurants, beaches, trails and more.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom abodes have earned a 4-star Built Green rating and include Earth-friendly perks such as tankless hot water heaters, paints with low volatile organic compounds (VOC), formaldehyde-free millwork, energy-efficient lighting and a 95 percent efficient furnace with a HEPA filter that removes small harmful particles and pollutants from the air. Two-car garages also come outfitted with a conduit to set up a charging station for an electric car.

Open-concept living areas with gas fireplaces flow into sizeable gourmet kitchens that are equipped with slab quartz countertops, hand-laid, full-height tile backsplashes, a fleet of stainless steel appliances—including the Italian-made Bertazzoni range—and European-inspired cabinetry with soft-close technology. Abundant windows allow for light-filled spaces.

Bathrooms are equally decked out with high-end finishes, such as polished chrome faucets and fixtures, porcelain tile flooring and porcelain tile shower surrounds in the master bath.

To make the most of the neighborhood's surrounding Lake Washington views, the homes at Five | Lakeview include a huge rooftop deck that's been plumbed for gas for ease in hooking up a grill. Houghton Beach, neighborhood watering hole the Beachhouse Bar + Grill, the marina and restaurants such as Bin on the Lake and Le Grande Bistro Americain at Carillon Point, the Cross Kirkland Corridor trail, Lakeview Elementary and Metropolitan Market are all nearby.
