Maple Valley, Wash. - One look at a recently built model home will tell you, there's something special going on in Maple Valley.

"It looks and feels different than anything you see anywhere else," said Andrea Forbush, National Design Manager for MainVue Homes.

What else makes this home unique is that 100% of the purchase price of this dream home will directly benefit life saving research at Seattle Children's.

"So this particular home is designed specifically for the Estates at Sugarloaf mountain to take advantage of the large lot size and to really bring the outdoors in," said Forbush. "We have 4,600 square feet of luxurious living space here. Five bedrooms, six bathrooms."

Like most well thought out homes, the heart, is the kitchen.

"The kitchen is really the center of every MainVue home and that Island becomes the hub of family living. The sink is centered right in the middle," explained Forbush. "We feature all Caesarstone products in our kitchen. We use all high end Electrolux appliances."

Surrounding the kitchen is a wide variety of spaces to enjoy.

Forbush said, "So the great room is a really great feature of this home. It's surrounded by windows that let the light into the space. The multipurpose room, which is a really great feature you can entertain in that space. One thing that I think is really great about this home is the extended outdoor living space, which we got the great fire place out there and is a really great place to kind of unwind."

And the amenities of the home continue up stairs as well.

"The master suite is amazing it takes up the entire rear width of the home. It feels like you're in a suite," said Forbush. "Off the master suite is the master bath which is exquisite. I love the tiled walk in shower. My favorite feature of the space though has to be the free standing tub," said Forbush.

To the buyer, the house offers everything a family could want, with the added bonus of helping a vital organization.

"We're real proud at MainVue to donate this home and the proceeds to Children's Research Institute," said Forbush.

On Saturday, May 9th, KING-TV will be hosting a special open house at the MainVue Seattle Children's Charity Home at the Estates at Sugarloaf Mountain. There will be live music, food and good company – King-5's own Paul Silvi, Rich Marriot and Amanda Grace will be there from 1 - 4 pm. To find out more and to rsvp, just go to king5.com/house
