Suncadia Launches Osprey Ridge Neighborhood

Washington State's All-Season Resort Community Launches First New Neighborhood Since 2007

ROSLYN, WA--(Marketwired - April 15, 2015) - Suncadia, Washington state's year-round mountain resort community, located just 80 miles east of Seattle, launches Osprey Ridge, a hilltop enclave of homesites positioned in the heart of Suncadia's vibrant community with expansive views of the Cle Elum River Valley and the majestic Cascade Mountain Range.

"Suncadia has experienced overwhelming successes in the past year prompting us to bring this incredible neighborhood to market. We are proud to have created a community where our current owners believe so strongly in their purchase here that over one third of our real estate sales come from our current owners either buying an additional property or from their referrals to family and friends," said Richard Seay, vice president, director of sales and marketing for Suncadia. "The addition of these exquisite Osprey Ridge homesites to our offerings will only strengthen what Suncadia has to provide to our current and future home owners."

The limited release of 11 homesites will feature the most unobstructed and inspiring views Suncadia has yet to offer as some of the homesites will overlook the signature No. 10 hole of the Arnold Palmer designed Prospector Golf Course. Inspired by the magnificent birds that soar above expansive natural forests below, Osprey Ridge was created for the resident who wants to be steps away from the numerous activities Suncadia has to offer, yet wants to enjoy the privacy and tranquility of their own luxury residence. Across from the Suncadia Club Swim & Fitness Center and the Glade Spring Spa, wrought iron gates and stacked stone walls will make the liveliness of Suncadia Village feel a world away, yet still provides homeowners with easy access to the Suncadia trail system and Cle Elum River.

Osprey Ridge will be released to the public on April 19th. Homesites will start at $397,000.

In 2014, Suncadia Real Estate posted its best year since 2007, with over 160 real estate closings. This produced a 52 percent increase in revenues and a 24 percent in total transactions year-over-year. Additionally, more than 110 new home construction starts occurred within the resort community in the last 24 months.

Osprey Ridge joins Suncadia's many distinct neighborhoods that offer a variety of styles -- The Lodge, Rope Rider, Prospector, Black Nugget, Trailhead and Prospector's Reach communities for a resort village experience and its Nelson Preserve district providing dramatic views and easy access to the river and Tumble Creek, allowing owners a secluded and private retreat on estate homesites.

Suncadia offers homeowners a variety of amenities including access to the award-winning Prospector and Rope Rider golf courses, Portals Restaurant, the Suncadia Club Swim & Fitness Center and Glade Spring Spa. Suncadia is the only resort of its kind to feature a winery within its boundaries, Swiftwater Cellars, which crushes grapes on-site and makes premium Swiftwater Cellars' wines. In addition, Tumble Creek Club members have access to the private Tom Doak designed golf course, glamorous camping of Sasse Mountain outpost, and their own private Hill House Swim & Fitness Center.

Seasonal activities and events at the property include the Suncadia Outdoor Summer Concert Series, Multi-Sport Festival, annual Swiftwater Classic golf tournament, Harvest Festival and Winterfest, outdoor concerts at Swiftwater Cellars, miles of hiking and biking trails, winter ice skating and tubing hill, guided fly fishing tours, paddle board rentals and much more.
