Port Orchard, WA — The McCormick Planned Community in Port Orchard has a new neighborhood. Muirfield is the latest addition to the roster of homes within the larger McCormick community. The 46 homesites, exclusively featuring MainVue Homes, are now for sale.
Located along the 10th Fairway at the McCormick Woods Golf Club, Muirfield boasts a quick walk to the golf pro shop and clubhouse for dinner, drinks, and community events along a designated walking trail. This is MainVue’s first golf course neighborhood, and second neighborhood within the McCormick Community.
McCormick’s development planning is aligned with the Audubon Society’s standards for wildlife preservation and enhancement of the natural surroundings for the built environment. The Muirfield addition continues this practice with MainVue’s thorough environmental building standards and signature outdoor living space in each home.
“It’s exciting to innovate and give new choice to homebuyers in the Seattle area,” said Eric Campbell, CEO of MainStreet Property Group, the parent company of McCormick. “MainVue Homes at McCormick is a perfect match, offering stylish homes in a picturesque community. Our newest neighborhood, Muirfield, expands on this, giving MainVue homeowners a lifestyle of walkability and golf course views from their stunning signature outdoor living rooms.”
MainVue was the chosen partner for this project to offer modern home designs with a shared vision for community well-being. Like McCormick, MainVue is committed to high quality and efficiency standards. MainVue Homes focuses on a Whole Home Efficiency program that incorporates healthy air flow, energy saving designs and appliances, water conservation practices, and sustainably sourced building materials through a partnership with the Sumitomo Forestry Group.
“We are thrilled with our ongoing partnership with McCormick. MainVue’s first neighborhood in the McCormick community was a great success,” said Vanessa Normandin, President of MainVue Homes. “Homeowners are happy with the rich combination of community building and high-quality housing. Muirfield offers new options for homebuyers looking to move into this idyllic community setting.”
The McCormick Planned Community will continue to expand in 2020 and beyond, offering Seattle area buyers a place to call home. The company has invested substantially in local community infrastructure. Last November, the City of Port Orchard lifted a moratorium on water hook-up permits for undeveloped portions of the McCormick property. This decision came with a commitment from McCormick to invest $18 million in private funds to repair and build new water infrastructure including reservoirs, wells, and a new transmission main.
The Puget Sound region is always seeking new ways to add much needed housing while maintaining livability. Muirfield delivers housing with walkability, preservation of natural scenery, and proximity to the vital amenities people rely on to access work, education, healthcare, food and entertainment.
As costs continue to rise in Seattle, Port Orchard has become a destination for the urban workforce to build their personal community. The Fast Ferry into Seattle has changed the equation for where Puget Sound homebuyers are looking to move. The combination of convenient transportation options along with the small-town charm of Port Orchard and the McCormick Community means would-be Muirfield residents can easily access a diversity of activities and amenities that meet their needs.
Muirfield homesites are now selling, with single-story and two-story home plans ranging in size from 2639 SF to 4078 SF including their signature outdoor living room. Prices start from the high $500,000’s. MainVue is currently building their model home in Muirfield, with an opening set for Summer of 2020. Until then, MainVue’s model home in Eldon Trails at McCormick is open for buyers to tour while learning more about available homesites in Muirfield.
McCormick is a master-planned community in Port Orchard, set in a natural forest environment which features the McCormick Woods Golf Club. McCormick offers new homes starting in the $400s, with neighborhoods thoughtfully planned to maintain forest land and open green space.
