April 2023

On the secluded northern edge of Billings Heights, Williams Homes welcomes you to High Sierra, their newly-developed housing community. Surrounded by open grasslands, sweeping vistas, and occasional wildlife, their home featured in the 2022 Billings Parade of Homes is fit for any family of any age or stage. The 5- bedrooms and 3-full bathrooms with 2,600 square feet of functional living space make this well-designed house truly a home. 

“Whether locals or transplants, we are seeing buyers find their dream home with an attainable price tag and situated in a master-planned community that has so much to offer a wide range of buyer types – from couples to families to empty nesters,” Williams Homes Director of Marketing Lisa Silagy said of the High Sierra community.   

First Impressions 

Nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac not far from Lake Hills Golf Course, enter the two-story Sapphire model home through a long, covered porch whose rough-hewn beams provide a visual treat against the home’s crisp white exterior.   

A Kitchen for Gathering 

The midnight-grey quartz countertops and large island elegantly contrast against the kitchen’s crisp, white cabinets and timeless subway-tiled backsplash. The stainless-steel appliances sparkle throughout, and the roomy space allows for cooking and entertaining comfortably and easily.   

Neighboring the kitchen is a walk-in pantry offering plenty of extra storage. Putting groceries away will be a breeze, as the pantry is conveniently accessed through the home’s oversized garage. 

Diverse Dining 

This home has a formal or casual dining style for every occasion. Have your morning coffee nestled in the cozy breakfast nook, a beautifully lit kitchen corner where windows and natural light abound. When it’s time to feed a crowd, there’s space for a traditional dining set, too. Or, pull up a stool for front-row seating at the kitchen’s massive island.   

Lisa adds, “This home’s first-floor features particularly handsome vinyl plank flooring from the entry through the main living areas – the coloration is simply beautiful.” 

A Fluid and Flowing Living Space 

With its numerous windows and natural light, the open-concept Great Room boasts a bright, airy space to relax and unwind. If you’re after coziness, the living room’s gas fireplace sets the mood with the flip of a switch.   

As any parent of young children can attest, the lack of walls between the kitchen and living space is invaluable in those early years. The space's openness creates an area to stay connected, no matter your family dynamic. 

A Spacious Suite 

The Grand Suite offers splendor, but perhaps most notably, space. The ensuite bathroom includes double vanities with ample storage, a separate room for the commode, a roomy, tiled shower, and a stunning, free-standing soaking tub. In addition, the adjoining and expansive walk-in closet is promised to delight.   

Upstairs Laundry? Yes, Please! 

With four of the five bedrooms located upstairs, what could be better than a nearby laundry room? As you tackle this never-ending chore, the conveniently located upstairs laundry room means fewer steps in the process. The extra wide utility sink and plenty of cabinet space help keep the laundry room fresh and clean.  

A Place to Play 

Just in time for spring, the fully fenced and landscaped backyard is ready for pets, patio sets, and playing outside!  

“High Sierra is a welcoming new place to plant down roots in a friendly Billings neighborhood, and this home has all of the must-haves of a modern, single-family home,” Lisa said. “From its flowing interior design to all the designer finishes featured throughout, a vibrant new lifestyle is sure to be found here for one lucky homebuyer.”
