With approximately forty-five spectacular home sites within this gated community, each parcel of land offers vistas of northwestern exposure providing long-range views and breathtaking sunsets. Our real estate plan is for a low-density development that allows for a neighborhood environment with the privacy one expects when considering a mountain home. The developers spent countless hours walking every foot of the property prior to platting lots. This is to make certain each designated home site is perfectly located to capture views and provide privacy. We work with the homeowner during the design phase to ensure the home is situated on the site effectively to obtain the best possible view with the least impact on the forest. The goal is to create intriguing views through the native vegetation leaving the canopies intact. With provisions such as round-the-clock Protective Services, Property Maintenance, Trash Removal, Road Maintenance, and Off-Season Home Inspections, life at Diamond Creek is simple and care free. It is imperative to know all homes at Diamond Creek have been designed and built with thorough covenants and restrictions, design regulations, an architectural review board, and an inspection process in place.
