BEND – One of the things I love about living and working in the Bend Oregon Real Estate Market is the huge variety of great neighborhoods to choose from including Awbrey Butte, an excellent west side neighborhood which offers plenty of great homes for people who are planning on relocating or purchasing their next home in the area.

Awbrey Butte is in NorthWest Bend and locals refer to it simply as “The Butte.” Some of the nicest and largest homes in Bend are located on The Butte and some of Bend’s most amazing Cascade Mountain views can be found here, particularly on the NW side. Some homes enjoy views of the entire mountain range from Mt. Bachelor to Mt. Hood. The southern and southeastern sides of the butte have views of Downtown Bend and Pilot Butte, where the fireworks display takes place each 4th of July.

Awbrey Butte has 786 homesites with a mix of older and new homes, and the lots are generally larger (0.25 – 0.5 acre on average) and heavily treed, which provides privacy and a sense of being surrounded by open space. Fences are discouraged on the Butte, which contributes to the open feel and allows wildlife to migrate through the area. Awbrey Butte is also home to two golf clubs, The Awbrey Glen Golf Club and River’s Edge Golf Resort, tennis courts, and numerous parks and trails. Awbrey Butte does have a Home Owner’s Association with a small annual fee that enforces the CC&Rs that protect the owner’s property values and beautiful neighborhood appearance.

 Popular subdivisions on The Butte include: Awbrey Butte, Awbrey Glen, Awbrey Meadows, Awbrey Park, Awbrey Point, Awbrey Village, Awbrey Woods, North Rim, River’s Edge Village, River Park Estates, Wyndemere, City View, and The Heights of Bend.
