Finding Great Value at ParkSide by Gentry

homes1Gentry Homes has introduced a new neighborhood in the Ewa by Gentry master-planned community. The single-family condominium home development, ParkSide by Gentry, is located next to Coral Creek Golf Course and several community parks that provide a multitude of outdoor recreational opportunities.

The three-, four- and five-bedroom homes are priced from the high $400,000s. Homebuyers can choose from five distinctive two-story home designs ranging from 1,231 to 1,596 square feet. Many Park-Side homes will have views of Coral Creek Golf Course, a future park and the Koolau mountain range.

Rick Hobson (R), Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Gentry Homes, Ltd., pointed out that the homes would incorporate numerous energy-saving features and high-tech conveniences.

“All ParkSide homes will include an abundance of Gentry VIP (Value Included in Price) features, including the new NEST Learning Thermostat, which enables homeowners to program and personalize their home’s temperature to conform to their lifestyle and change it remotely with a smart phone,” he said. “Another great feature is Gentry’s AirRenew interior drywall and ceiling material designed to offer a healthier living environment by improving indoor air quality.

AirRenew removes VOC emissions from the air and converts them into safe inert compounds. It also improves air quality by providing enhanced moisture and mold resistance.”

Hobson added that Gentry’s Green Living program offers energy-efficient GE Artistry appliances, 16-SEER central air conditioning with a MERV 8 filter system, a solar water heating system with an 80-gallon tank, Icynene open cell insulation to lock in the cool air and diminish sound transmittal, dual pane Low-E vinyl windows and a LED lighting package. “The homeowner can expect savings every month on their electricity bill due to these energy-saving features, which are standard inclusions in the homes,” Hobson said. “A number of upgrade options will enable buyers to personalize the home to fit their needs. Flexible design plans allow for additional loft or bedroom space, a master bedroom retreat area and even larger outdoor covered lanais. Nine-foot ceiling heights are standard on the first floor. All homes have large insulated garages that are big enough to accommodate a minivan and a regular size car, with room left over for storage.”

ParkSide’s exterior features include front yard landscaping, rear yard privacy fencing, contemporary exterior paint colors and streetscapes, Hardi-plank siding and composite roofs with standing seam accents that include a 30-year warranty, Borate pressure-treated framing lumber warrantied for 30 years, and Truss Joist silent floor systems. Various upgrade options are available, including photo-voltaic energy systems, wireless security systems and more.

ParkSide’s private recreation center will include a swimming pool, barbecue and picnic area, and cabana for the use of residents. In addition, landscaped “parklets” are being created where neighborhood residents can gather with friends and their pets.

“ParkSide is very well located,” Hobson said. “The new Laulani Shopping Center with Safeway, City Mill, Petco, many other retail stores, restaurants and employment opportunities is close by. It’s a short five-minute drive to the Ewa Town Center, Keoneula Elementary School, Ewa Makai Middle School, Geiger and other neighborhood parks and neighborhood bike paths. Golf enthusiasts have a choice of six golf courses in the area and the beach is minutes away. Being a part of the Ewa by Gentry master-planned community has a multitude of amenities and benefits.”

First occupancies are scheduled for this June. Currently five professionally furnished models are available for viewing and a Homebuyers Assistance Program is available.

“ParkSide homes are a great value with prices starting in the high $400,000s,” Hobson said. “Buyers can obtain significant savings through our Home-buyer Assistance Program. This, together with the low interest rates, will make ParkSide a viable alternative to renting.”

To visit the model homes and sales office, take the H-1 freeway west to the Ewa Exit (5A). Travel along Fort Weaver Road past Ewa Town Center and look for the ParkSide signs on the right.
