We are thrilled to announce that we now have an on-site sales information center in our new Bend Oregon neighborhood! In the form of a small, but mighty, “tiny home” the brand-new Discovery Pod is open to the public, staffed by our knowledgeable sales partners from Harcourts The Garner Group Real Estate from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. A functional space that holds everything you need to learn about Discovery West, the Pod is located at 3124 NW Skyline Ranch Road. Because this address is so new, Google maps doesn’t recognize it quite yet, so you may need some good old fashioned instructions to reach it.
- From the NorthWest Crossing neighborhood center, head west on N.W. Crossing Drive
- Go past the park on your right and Summit High School on your left
- Turn right onto Skyline Ranch Rd.
- Go up a small rise and the Pod will be on your right
The growing trend of tiny homes had been on our radar, and we saw it as a perfect solution for both form and function for our new neighborhood. Check out how we tapped into the experts at Oregon home builder, Tiny Heirloom, to create a space for us. The end result is a light, bright and beautiful tiny ‘sales center’ with both indoor and outdoor spaces designed for discovering all the community has to offer.
The Discovery Pod features an area for meetings, a kitchenette, a restroom, plus a large screen monitor to look at plans and listings – all in a small, simple and charming space. There are little “discoveries” throughout the Pod, including activities and books for any kids who might be accompanying their families as they shop for a new Bend, Oregon home. The inviting exterior features a custom Cement Elegance fire table and chairs for comfortable outdoor meetings.
The Pod was created as a temporary space so that it can move to the neighborhood core when Phase 4 is complete. The homesite on which it sits can then become part of the community.
Currently, the Discovery West Builders Guild, a team of approved builders for the neighborhood, is hard at work on new home construction in Phase 1. Several of these homes are already under contract. Homesites in Phase 2 will be released to builders this fall as the community continues to grow.
