Panorama is your last chance to live like you're on top of the world. This new neighborhood atop Talus, a master-planned community 30 years in the making, is the culmination of a vision meant to put homeowners one step closer to Northwest heaven. These heavenly homes, located mere minutes from Bellevue and Seattle, are surrounded by Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park, Lake Sammamish, Tiger Mountain, and Mount Si. Geographical conveniences aside, lush views and the surrounding tranquility of nature elevate the homeowner experience like never before.
Panorama offers some of everything to residents. Uniquely positioned on the side of Cougar Mountain, the homes in Panorama are built above all the other homes in the area. Residents can access a variety of trails directly from the neighborhood, which is conveniently located a short drive from downtown Issaquah and less than a mile away from I-90.
Other homes advertise their proximity to the city but are nowhere near outdoor recreation. Some homes are tucked away in the privacy of nature, but that means they aren't close to shopping, education, or restaurants. Very rarely can you find a perfect combination like Panorama.
When construction is complete, there will be 63 homes total in Panorama. Residents can currently choose from five different floor plans, each with stunning views of the surrounding mountains, water, and forests. The smallest floor plan (Sightline) is still over 3,100 square feet, while the largest option (Outlook) has six bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and over 4,000 square feet.
The Sightline model is designed with an open living floor plan that caters to families who are looking to downsize. The four larger models feature three levels for those who would rather live upward instead of outward. Triple pane windows invite energy-saving sunlight into your home, providing an overlook of the outdoors from the comfort of your couch or bedroom. If ever there was a place worthy of a panoramic picture, it is this neighborhood, and even that won't do justice to the serene beauty here.
Currently, 12 of the homes are under construction, and only one is fully complete. This means that buyers can claim a home that isn't fully built and add personal customizations before it is finished. And with the current social landscape due to COVID-19, feeling like you have everything you need and want in your home is of utmost importance.
Living in the Panorama community means you'll be a part of the highly touted Issaquah School District. Issaquah Valley Elementary School, Issaquah Middle School, and Issaquah High School are located in downtown Issaquah. When education returns to normal, children will be able to get to school via bus or a short drive. Even more convenient will be the new middle school that is now under construction within the Talus community.
Besides stellar education, downtown Issaquah is full of local shops and businesses. The city is one of the fastest-growing places in the state, and it exudes both a historic and modern vibe. Issaquah's commuter score is also ranked highest in Washington, partly because it is close to I-90, which means you can always drive to Bellevue, Seattle, or even central and eastern Washington.
The debut of the Panorama neighborhood certainly deserves celebration, but unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has restricted the ability to host viewing parties with large groups inside the Welcome Center or model home.
Private tours of the Panorama community are available by appointment only between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursday through Monday.
