Remember this stunner? It was our 2017 Idea House, a sleek, single-family home in Bellevue built by JayMarc Homes, and it recently received a 2018 Best in American Living Award from the National Association of Home Builders. The Bellevue home was designed with a modern, open floor plan ideal for entertaining — and the main level maximizes waterfront views — but it also features cozy nooks for relaxation. Another Eastside JayMarc home received one of the awards, a 7,000-plus-square-foot custom home in Mercer Island with beautiful views of Seattle and a large gathering space for entertaining. An awards ceremony is being held in February.
