Using Experience to Guide the Future
The Burnsteads, a local family of independent home building companies committed to the Northwest for over 50 years, are always looking for opportunities to purchase quality land for future communities. Our reputation is built on the premise that the Burnsteads don’t simply build homes, we build vibrant neighborhoods.
A Word from Some of Our Customers
We have been looking for a new living arrangement for two years now and we finally feel like we’ve found a place to call home. Burnstead picks great locations, builds exceptional quality product, and establishes strong community foundations with shared common spaces and comprehensive CC & R’s.
Building a new house doesn’t get any easier. The Burnstead team has been fantastic to work with. It’s obvious that they love what they do and are proud of their work. I was particularly impressed with how they reacted to all my special requests and made my vision become real. I love my new home. Thank you!
We love our Westridge home. We were impressed by the quality of the construction since we first looked at the house. Since moving in, we have had several different friends over who work in the construction industry and each have commented on the excellent workmanship throughout the home without any prompting from us!
It was never just building our house, it was building our home. The craftsmanship and care put in every step of the way surpasses our every expectation.
We love our Burnstead home and couldn’t be more pleased with our decision. We appreciate the quality of construction and get a lot of complements on the beautiful millwork and finishing details. Highlands Park is a welcoming and active neighborhood with wide, tree-lined streets and sidewalks. We thoroughly enjoy living here!
When I was fourteen my parents purchased a new Burnstead home. Now over thirty years later my husband and I have bought in Highlands Park. The Burnstead name continues to mean quality and satisfaction!
I love the location of our Highlands Park home! We are ten minutes from the town of Issaquah and the new shopping area of “The Landing”. We are centrally located to meet any need whether shopping, dining or medical services. The convenience and variety has been wonderful!
After looking for months unsuccessfully for a house in Kirkland/Bellevue area we decided to check Issaquah on a friend’s advice. A few days later we found our home at the Bridges. We love the location that is embraced by mountains from three sides yet 5 minutes or less to shopping, restaurants, transit and a short drive to downtown Seattle and Bellevue. Love the views of the regal snow-caped Cascades and serene Tiger mountain. Love having 3000+ acres of the Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park with 36 miles of trails as our back yard. Add to the Burnstead’s construction with the elements of an alpine chalet nestled on the top of “Issaquah Alps” and you get the best of two worlds – modern amenities and a vacation home in one. Why would we ever want to leave!
Great view! Great location! Great home! The Bridges at Talus far exceeds what I thought I’d move into when I decided to downsize. I love living on a mountain surrounded by so many trees and the views of the Cascade’s and Tiger Mountain. The alpine village atmosphere makes it so unique. The quality and special features of the home are amazing! Granite counter tops, crown mouldings, and stonework show off the lodge style of the home. Only a mile to the city or freeway makes it super accessible. I am so glad to have moved here – it is truly my dream home!
We cannot say enough great things about our home-buying experience at the Woods at Beaver Lake! Our search for the perfect home kept us looking in the Sammamish area, and the Woods offered a secluded yet accessible location to everything we needed including the excellent Issaquah schools. The quality and craftsmanship of the homes was and continues to be beyond compare. Throughout the process of our pre-sale, we felt all of our questions were met with thoughtful consideration at every level. Kathleen offered us invaluable consultation so that we might select a home perfect for our needs. Leo’s knowledge and consideration gave us a confidence in the process I don’t think we would have had with any other builder. Leah’s eye for design is the reason we continue to appreciate the warm comfortable atmosphere in our home. Finally, the site manager, Jim, offered an exceptional eye for detail in his workmanship. We feel very fortunate to have had such a wonderful experience, especially when the market has been so topsy turvy. We continue to appreciate the quality of our home each day and definitely recommend Burnstead and the Woods!
We love our new Burnstead home! It is comfortable and yet casually elegant. Kathleen was great to work with and very helpful in the buying process. Thanks to Chris and all the other folks who helped complete the things that needed to be done before our move-in. We can still remember him outside in the pouring rain building our fence so the house would be ready in time for closing!
The Woods is truly a neighborhood we are proud to live in. Attention to detail and quality workmanship are the real deal here. No kidding. Come have a look. And by the way, if you see a couple of happy homeowners sitting on their front porch drinking coffee on a weekend morning, that might be us!
I can’t imagine a home buying experience being better than what I experienced with Rick Burnstead Homes. My purchase in Vintners Ridge was entirely painless thanks to the efforts of my realtor Connie Redden and her counterpart Margaret Woehlert, and the Burnstead team. The house is of very high quality with great attention to detail, and the minor items on the walk-through punch list were handled quickly and correctly. I’m extremely happy with my purchase and appreciate all the work of the realtor team and the professionals at Rick Burnstead Homes.
We were looking for our new home at a pristine/quiet location, yet not more than 10-15 minute drive from my Microsoft office in Bellevue/Redmond, shopping, recreation, outdoor activities such as Golf, Pro sports, downtown Belleview/Kirkland and lake front. Also, we wanted a new or less than 5 years old house built by a reputed builder. Meeting all these requirements at reasonable price was huge challenge for our realtor. We went through weeks of search until we saw our present home at Vintner Ridge. My wife and I loved it immediately.
Quality of construction in words of our home inspector “This has been my toughest inspection because as a home inspector I am supposed to find faults and this house has none as the builder has taken care of every possible detail not seen in other construction.” Well done Burnstead and keep up the good work. Every day my family enjoys fruits of your perfection!!!
As first-time home buyers with high aspirations, we couldn’t have chosen a better team than Burnstead, they’re A+! We did a pre-sale, and were given open access to the construction site from day 1. It was delightful to have the house built in front of our eyes! Buying experience has been excellent – the customer service has been outstanding. There was visibly strong commitment to ensure our satisfaction! They allowed us to make some structural changes in the kitchen, add a skylight, and extend a couple of windows. They have extensive design selections and worked with us closely to shape the look of our house. The completed home is premium quality all over, with superior finishes and good attention to detail. We’re super happy!
Our home looks very inviting and appealing. The exterior and interior are exactly as we planned it. We love the view of the mountains and sunrise from the Bonus room and the front bedroom. The kitchen is the heart of the home as everyone congregates there. The quartz counters/ island, soft close drawers, lazy susan, and garbage cabinet make the kitchen a pleasure to cook/eat meals in. We enjoy the landscaped garden from the porch, and the backyard from the nook/patio. We love taking walks in the neighborhood. This is an exciting time for our family as we enjoy, and explore our new home and the environment.
We had family visiting from Austin, Texas, and they found the new home awesome, with the kitchen the best feature. We had a guest for Thanksgiving. We will be inviting friends over for Christmas. Our new home has brought together friends and family.
