When we decided to buy a new construction home, it didn’t take us long to pick Sterling Hills as the place to be! We fell in love with the layout of the development. The developer has been involved in all aspects of the neighborhood’s design and has put a lot of thought into the details. Walking trails, playgrounds and a large open meadow area all appealed to us.
Scott, Garry and Karin made the daunting process of building a new home very easy to manage. One of the things we enjoyed about our experience was the choice to let Scott build the home using his very high standard for construction, or to get immersed in the details of picking out the perfect floors and cabinets. The starting point for the house is very good, and we were very happy with the choices that were included as part of the specification.
We have lived in our home for several months now, and the happy glow hasn’t worn off. We have had very few minor issues, and the builder has been incredibly responsive in getting them resolved. I daresay that you could not possibly expect a larger builder to provide the level of personal service that we received.
It was quite by happenstance that I found Sterling Hills Estates. I had been doing a search on-line for new home developments in the same neighborhood as my sister. I was sold once I started reading their website which spoke about their “green” home building, large lots, variety of plans in which to choose from, and ability to customize the look & feel of your home.
I have been nothing less than thrilled with all those involved in the purchase of my new home. Scott Delhaute (builder) has assembled a great team to work alongside during each & every decision making process of featured items & any/all upgrades that I chose for my home. Garry Wanner & Karin Ahlman (John L Scott Real Estate) were awesome to work with ! They were all just a phone call away, even now after move-in.
My son & I are loving the walking trails where whether we are just out for a short walk, or taking our dog for a walk…there is beauty & nature in abundance.
I couldn’t be prouder to show my home off. The finished product is amazing & beautiful!
We are first time homebuyer’s. After reading all of the different stories about the stresses and hardships involved in buying and building a home, we found the entire process from start to finish to have been very uneventful, which goes to show the level of professionalism and attention to detail Garry, Karin, Scott and the entire team puts into their efforts. They made us comfortable from the beginning and kept us very well informed about every step.
Our new home is fantastic. The craftsmanship is excellent and we have not had any issues at all. I highly recommend stopping by the neighborhood and taking a look around. You can see the level of meticulous planning that went into the project from the arrangement of the homes to the quality and efficiency of the models offered.
Our family could not be happier about our new home.
Good Evening Scott Delhaute (Builder Extraodinaire),
I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying my new Home. Everything is just perfect! You have certainly gone the extra mile to please me. I love my Rambler. Everything on one floor. Lots of storage, love my view of the wetlands. Nice little patio, lovely front porch.
It has certainly been a good choice for me. Wonderful friendly neighbors. The locked mailboxes are certainly an asset. Great location, so convenient. Sterling Hills has all that I could hope for.
Scott listens! He tries very hard to fill your needs. I am so fortunate to have found a home that suits me so very well.
Scott Delhaute and his team were absolutely amazing throughout the entire building process and the final product blew us away! This was our first time building a home, and Scott went above and beyond his duty as the builder to provide us with guidance, expertise, and a home built to perfection that we will love and cherish for years to come.
Our first visit to Sterling Hills was on a whim, and we instantly fell in love with the neighborhood. We didn’t realize that our first tour of the development was with the owner/builder until later. Scott Delhaute is involved on a very personal level, and he’s very down-to-earth. The hands-on service and attention to detail is one of the things that sold us on building here. Scott and his team have been responsive and helpful along the way to building the home we treasure. The home lots are much bigger than is offered in most new communities, and the amenities such as parks and trails are something we enjoy every day. The green spaces and the meadow are heavenly. The homes blend in naturally with the environment with their earth tone colors and rock accents. Once our home was completed, we had a few minor adjustments, which we fully expected. The unexpected part was that Scott ensured every detail met our expectations and that anything that wasn’t to our satisfaction was resolved promptly. There isn’t a day you don’t see Scott and his team in the neighborhood, and Scott’s always checking in to make sure things are going well. We highly recommend this neighborhood and builder. Our family and friends love coming to our home, and we love living here!
Being a part of Sterling Hills Community is a total package. Scott and Tim’s customer service are exceptional…. The serenity of the place is very relaxing. We really love our neighborhood as well-a community leading to one big family…. Oh, T-Jay and Yoda our dogs want to say “arfff… arff !!! Having a place here is like “A Home within a Home!”
To all potential Sterling Hills homebuyers,
I have worked with Scott Delhaute of Sterling Hills from the ground up. We started with the Alderwood floor plan which had not yet been built at the plat. Scott was very accommodating when I requested making a few small changes to the floor plan that better suited my lifestyle. Scott had my home built w/in the estimated time frame, making sure everything was in perfect order before I moved in. In my estimation Scot is diligent in using the best materials and employs the most courteous, conscientious contractors to build a fine, beautiful, well constructed home. I am so very pleased with the final product, a house that I can truly call ‘home’!
Thank you Scott!
We spent two years looking for a rambler home in Central Kitsap. When Sterling Hills Estates began offering 1-story plans, we ordered a new home right away! Having had plenty of time to check out quality of construction and various neighborhood settings, we knew this was the right choice. Scott Delhaute, Garry Wanner and Karin Ahlman went out of their way to help us work through a number of details and here we are — enjoying our lovely, new home! We know Scott is there for us, as shown by his strong commitment to high standards of quality throughout the Sterling Hills community. We’re impressed with the environmental amenities with open views, protected wetlands and walking trails. Having lived in many parts of the USA, we especially appreciate the beauty and quality of life in this unique and exceptional neighborhood.
We are thrilled with our new home in Sterling Hills. The whole process has worked out so well. Scott and his staff have been so nice to work with, and always willing to answer questions.
The neighborhood is so well planned with attractive streetlights, and mailboxes, and very well designed homes. There are many styles and colors which add to the decor on the street.
We were given a Home Owner’s Manual that is very well done and complete. We find that our home is so well constructed down to every last detail.
I could not be happier with my new house at Sterling Estates. I had some apprehension in leaving a waterfront home and 40 years of memories, but the atmosphere, helpfulness and convenience of my new home has made all the difference. Entertaining is easy, I enjoy seeing the different age groups, and even though I’m just minutes away from everything I need, I feel I’m settled comfortably in a quiet, peaceful hamlet in the country. Love it!
Resident since January 2014
Delaine and I want to express our deepest thanks and gratitude to you for the privilege of ownership In the great community of Sterling Estates.
We have looked many years for just the right single level home around the Kitsap County area; checking out many builders over that time frame and had found nothing compatible that would even motivate us to making a move.
It has been our good fortune however, and blessing of God, to be directed to this community we previously knew nothing about…….and when we arrived for a serious look at what might be available with adaptable square footage and quality of design, we found just the right home, still unfinished but waiting for us.
With delight, peace and joy in our hearts, we purchased 10498 Buccaneer Place NW. It is perfect for our needs; settled in a wonderful community atmosphere.
Mr. Scott Delhaute our builder, is a sensitive, professional, caring man of integrity, who takes pride in all that he builds, which is certainly reflective of the beautiful home and community we are now enjoying……. with our pride of ownership.
I highly recommend Mr. Scott Delhaute over all other builders we have been involved with down through the years. We now find great satisfaction…….living in Sterling Estates!
Accolades to you Scott, your partner, Garry Wanner, Garry’s wife, Karin and to all of the others who had anything to do with the thoughtful planning of Sterling Estates. Those that we have come into contact with have been affable, helpful, and friendly.
Thank you for the tree lined streets, stately lanterns to light the way, the pleasing to the eye landscaping, the exterior colors chosen for these homes that compliment mother nature and other amenities too numerous to mention!
I (we) are grateful for the replacement planting of a new tree which was planted on August 7th. We also appreciate the exchange of the entrance door that you so graciously agreed to exchange prior to our moving in.
There are many things I love about this house and among them are: the under counter mounted sink, the double oven, marble countertops, wide window sills, the master bath, the arched interior doors and last but not least – the fire place!
We are adapting happily into everything brand new.
I would keep Tim your assistant, if I were you. He seems to be conscientious, hardworking and friendly. He is often seen in the area busily getting things done. I applaud him.
