We're working with two couples who have decided it's time for one-level living. They both settled on Kingston Homes as the builder and a neighborhood called Jessie Hollow in Vancouver, Washington. One of the homes closed yesterday. We're excited for the buyers and know they're going to love their new home. Some of the important criteria included a modern-clean designs, a chef's kitchen, luxurious master bedroom and bathroom, and a convenient location.  Here's are a few reasons both couples decided to choose a Kingston Home. We think they chose well.
