Our Highlighted Home Features
Whether you are hosting a large dinner or simply entertaining friends and family, each of our Merit Homes kitchens come loaded with features to create a comfortable atmosphere sure to impress. The oversized gourmet chef's kitchen comes standard with stunning quartz countertops, island with bar seating, calming under counter accent lighting, designer selected tilework, custom cabinetry unique to each home, high-end fridge/freezer combo, and ample storage. Select floorplans even include a spacious butler pantry for extra prep area and built in wine storage.
Our outdoor living areas are designed with the Pacific Northwest in mind so they can be enjoyed year-round as yet another comfortable entertainment area. All of our patios and decks are a covered extension of your indoor living space, affording you seamless indoor/outdoor entertainment.
Spa-Inspired Master Suite
The master suite is a place you can escape and unwind with your spa inspired bath complete with large soaking tub, expansive walk-in shower with dual shower heads, double vanity with ambient lighting. Enjoy statement lighting, and large skylights allowing in relaxing natural light. Each suite is also equipped with a luxurious walk-in closet and custom closet shelving system unique to each home with accent lighting throughout.
Bring family and friends together for movie night in your very own home! Select floorplans are equipped with versatile bonus rooms, where you can take advantage of the boundless space flooded with natural light for all of your recreation needs. These oversized rooms afford you enough space to double as a work station, a workout room, a theater room, or anything else you need.
We take pride in working closely with our interior designer to hand select each of the finishes and features of every home we build. We understand that trends and buyer expectations are constantly evolving so we consider it critical to stay ahead of the changes and incorporate them into our latest homes. From the major focal points in a house like our grand floor to ceiling fireplaces, and hardwood floors accented with custom light fixtures in each of the main entertainment areas all the way down to the smaller details like built in closet systems throughout and outfitting each bedroom and bathroom with its own theme.
Custom Design and Modern Architecture
Take a drive through Kirkland and experience the distinct difference between a Merit Home and the others. We have worked hard over the years to fine tune the design of our homes with unique modern touches from bold butterfly rooflines, grand inviting entryways and rooftop decks to take in the views. We welcome you inside to explore our high ceilings, 2 story foyer's and living rooms, and continue up our custom staircases to the light and bright second story equipped with vaulted ceilings and strategically placed skylights and walls of windows. We take note that each building lot is different so there is no Merit Homes plan that goes without an adjustment (or many) to ensure we capture the best orientation, natural lighting and outdoor space enjoyment. People recognize our signature, NW Contemporary-style architecture and can typically point out a Merit Home from the streetscape.
Light and Bright Living Spaces
We know that sun-soaked living spaces are a top, sought-after feature for buyers in their new home search. Our homes are filled with abundant natural light to combat any rainy season gloom. Merit Homes is known for abundant skylight placement throughout our homes, and huge, oversized windows and doors to enhance your living spaces and make them feel much more inviting.
Laundry Room in Signature Homes
Our signature homes come with a dedicated laundry room to help make this chore a breeze. Now you can soak clothes that need to be hand washed, or if they have a stubborn stain that needs just a little extra attention. We love to add a pop of color to these spaces via the soft close cabinetry or through a fun, tile floor design. Ask about washer/dryer upgrades available for select homesites.
Mud Rooms/Drop Zones
Many of our homes are equipped with a separate mud room, or sometimes these spaces are called a drop zone or family foyer. These are adjacent to the direct garage access, and come with a built-in bench and storage shelves for a convenient space to take off shoes, leave keys, and backpacks. These spaces are great for staying organized and unloading your everyday items.
Custom Closet Shelving Throughout
Well thought out closet spaces are a must, and we know our buyers desire enough room to store summer and winter gear without spending time digging through pieces you don't need. Our custom closet shelving systems ensure you have plenty of room to hang, fold, and store your favorite outfits in a way that maximizes your space. Enjoy a functional closet space that works for you and keeps your everyday items within reach.
