Trailside Homes was born out of years of experience with building communities and homes for satisfied clients and the desire to deliver the most comprehensive building experience possible.

Sapphire Skies Land Company, a household name in the real estate and land development industry for years, recently announced the formation of Trailside Homes, a premier custom home building company.

Trailside Homes aims to capture the top end market where clients are looking for specific home features or unique designs that cater to their family’s needs. Sean Northrop, owner of Sapphire Skies Land Company and Trailside Homes says, “We began by creating sustainable land developments, then by building homes with an array of options for our clients to choose from, but we knew that we had clients that were looking for something more. Trailside Homes was born out of years of experience with building communities and homes for satisfied clients and the desire to deliver the most comprehensive building experience possible.”

Seven homes at Sapphire Skies’ newest community, Trailside at Woods & Steele, are currently under construction and a variety of homes are being offered now for purchase with time to choose your finishes. In some cases the home building process is already underway, and homes can be finished to the buyer’s specifications and occupied by fall of 2013, an added appeal for many prospective purchasers. Also available at Woods & Steele is the option to choose your parcel and select your cabin from any of the home plans offered.

Home owners can select finish options that were expertly selected by Six Walls Design of Mercer Island. These fine finishes such as slate tile flooring, slap counter tops, alder cabinetry, hand scraped wood flooring, designer lighting fixtures were compiled by design experts to represent authenticity to the region while complementing the territorial origins.

The mountain homes at Trailside at Woods and Steele were designed by 4D Architects of Seattle WA. “We designed the cabin homes to respond to the northern views and southern sun while maximizing winter accessibility. The homes feature open concept plans which maximize gathering space, and connect to the surrounding landscape,” says Barbara Pickens of 4D.

Cle Elum is nestled on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains and is host to four seasons of recreational enjoyment. Located only 90 minutes from downtown Seattle, it is an easy commute for the weekend or even an afternoon. With warm sunny days, snowy winters, and crisp autumns this area draws outdoor enthusiasts to its rivers, mountain peaks, trails, camping locations, and small town atmosphere.
