Bend, OR – Less than a year after breaking ground on Milepost 1, a special collection of two dozen townhomes and single-family homes on the West side of Bend, Arrowood Development, LLC achieved two significant mileposts of its own: the opening of the model home and the sale of the neighborhood’s ninth home. “We couldn’t be more excited with the progress and activity we are seeing at Milepost 1,” said John Lietz, President of Arrowood Development. “The weather this year has allowed our crews to work efficiently, and homebuyers are obviously responding to the exceptional value and unique location of the homes.”
Tucked between the Seventh Mountain Resort, Widgi Creek Golf Course and PointsWest Townhomes (another Arrowood development), Milepost 1 will ultimately feature 18 single-level and two-story attached townhome floor plans, as well as a half-dozen single-family homes, all literally surrounded by recreational opportunities. Homes ranging from 1,988 to 2,922 square feet afford a great deal of comfort with prices starting at $579,750.
The model, which is already sold, offers 2,862 square feet of modern mountain elegance in a two-level floor plan with three bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths. Master bedroom suites are on both floors with the lower floor including a den. Architect John Muir and the Arrowood Design Team have provided an open atmosphere with vaulted ceilings in the great room, while adding special touches like solid surface quartz countertops, custom knotty Alder cabinets and solid core eight-foot knotty Alder doors. It is likely to be a popular destination on the COBA Tour of Homes this July.
At other Milepost 1 homes under construction, Muir and the design team give buyers the ability to customize their fixtures and finishes. “We find that giving buyers floor plan options and input in the final stages makes them much more invested in the home,” says Muir. “The location, of course, makes it easy for them to be engaged in their surroundings.” With the slopes of Mt. Bachelor only 15 minutes away, and both Widgi Creek Golf Course and the Deschutes River Trail literally just steps away, Milepost 1 strongly appeals to both full and part-time Bend residents, as well as vacationers. As the community is just outside the city limits, overnight rentals are allowed. What’s more, since the neighborhood association takes care of all building exterior and landscape maintenance, snow removal and insurance, both residents and renters alike can enjoy a maintenance-lite lifestyle all year round.
Like Muir, the sales team of Stephanie Ruiz and Jordan Grandlund of Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty has worked with Arrowood for many years and in several of its communities. “We recently sold our last home in the PointsWest community right next to Milepost 1,” said Ruiz. “The homes at Milepost 1 give buyers one more chance to take advantage of this resort location close to all that Bend has offer, yet even closer to Mt. Bachelor and the Cascade Lakes.”
“There’s simply no place like it in Central Oregon for providing access to exciting adventures, as well as a long list of creature comforts at the end of the day,” adds Grandlund. “We still have several premium fairway home sites available. But with PointsWest sold out, we don’t expect them to last long.” The model home is open weekends from noon to 4:00 pm and by appointment.
