Resort community: refined retirement lifestyle

Retirement has been redefined at Trilogy® at Tehaleh®, a 55+ resort style community in Bonney Lake. As an active lifestyle adult community built by Shea Homes, residents have the choice to engage in numerous on-site activities such as regular social events, cooking, fitness, or art classes, and fine dining. If you are more of an outdoor person, spectacular views of Mount Rainier are visible throughout the community and from several nearby parks and miles of local trails.

At the heart of Trilogy is Seven Summits Lodge, a clubhouse that beautifully blends rustic design, inspired by the mountaineering and logging roots of the Pacific Northwest, with modern amenities that easily merge indoor and outdoor spaces. Walking into the club, a staff member is always on hand to offer a warm welcome, and likely so are several of your neighbors, who have gathered around one of the seven fireplaces, in the aptly named Hawk’s Nest game room, or The Mantel restaurant. A fun highlight of Seven Summits Lodge is the disappearing swimming pool. This space-saving design feature allows the floor of the pool to be raised, creating an event space, or lowered for water activities — and it takes less than 20 minutes for each transition.

“Trilogy at Tehaleh is focused around a way of life that promotes an engaged community and active living,” says Mark Grey, area president for Shea Homes Washington. “The top comment I hear from new residents is that they wished they had made the decision to purchase sooner.”

Homes at Trilogy at Tehaleh are as unique as the community they have been built in. Starting with green building features that are energy wise, eco-friendly, and healthy, each single-level floor plan includes a large kitchen and dining area perfect for entertaining and a luxurious master suite set apart from other bedrooms.

New Luxury Home Builder Opens at Tehaleh

HC Homes, a local Pierce County builder, debuted its model home and five plans for high-end, handcrafted homes designed specifically for the forested community of Tehaleh.

If you love the outdoors, you have to preview these homes, says Rick Seddon, managing broker for HC Homes. Tehaleh has numerous walking trails and community parks with amenities as diverse as soccer fields and zip lines and tranquil areas to read a book while enjoying wildlife on the pond.

“We’ve been building luxury homes for over 30 years in Pierce County and had been watching Tehaleh for about a year. We were impressed by the outdoor living, parks and community. We decided to seize the opportunity,” Seddon said.

All of the HC Homes lots back up to a greenbelt, ensuring views of the forest and direct access through the backyard to the community’s 10-plus miles of trails. These properties will integrate beautifully with Tehaleh’s 10 parks and outdoor spaces. With a focus on outdoor living, the homes feature covered patios with cabana fans, outdoor fireplaces, home audio hook-ups and adjustable specialty lighting.

HC Homes is excited to begin building its never-before-seen daylight-basement plans in Tehaleh, Seddon says. All of the main living space is on the main floor, including the master suite, which comes complete with his-and-hers walk-in closets and a sitting area. A bonus room and additional bedrooms are in the daylight basement. Two-story plans are also available.

The homes are designed with the Tehaleh buyer in mind, to include customizable premium options. Flex spaces will be able to accommodate a wine cellar, theater room or home office. The premier homes are priced in the high $400s to the low $500s, representing a higher price point at Tehaleh.
