Best Neighborhoods in Bend, OR – Shevlin Commons

Located at the edge of Bend on the west side, Shevlin Commons consists of 66 homesites on a 76 acre parcel bordering Tumalo Creek and Shevlin Park, an outdoor mecca for mountain biking, hiking and trail running, and cross-country skiing. With panoramic views of the Cascade Mountain Range and Shevlin Park in your backyard, Shevlin Commons epitomizes the true feeling of living in Central Oregon. By preserving 43 acres of the property as undevelopable open space and carefully guiding development, the founders of Shevlin Commons sought to create an “organic” or “seamless” transition from the edge of Bend’s urban area to outlying forestlands. It’s easy to see why Shevlin Commons is one of the best neighborhoods in Bend, Oregon. An approved building envelope was established for each lot in Shevlin Commons with the intention of preserving areas of native vegetation, minimizing site disturbance, and preserving views for other owners. Strict design guidelines ensure that residences are built in harmony with the natural character of the site and surrounding park lands. The architectural character of buildings in Shevlin Commons reflects a variety of Northwest architectural forms in a manner compatible with landscape-based design and the surrounding High Desert environment. A simple, clean-lined building style is required, with an emphasis on harmony with the landscape and use of natural building materials. This means that many of the homes in Shevlin Commons tend to be modern and contemporary in style, although modern is not the only approved architectural style. 62614 Sparrow Hawk CircleThis custom home for sale in Shevlin Commons is a beautiful example of an approved architectural style.
