Timber Creek is a popular 127-lot subdivision on the northeastern edge of Sisters. Platted in 1999, it consists predominantly of one- and two-story single-family homes, along with a smattering of duplexes and townhomes.
Location is one of its key draws here: situated amid a forest of old-growth Ponderosa pines not far from the Sisters Elementary School and within close proximity to downtown Sisters. Built in six phases (primarily between 2004-2007), Timber Creek also provides easy (and for some residents, direct) access to scenic Whychus Creek.
The neighborhood is also valued for its consistency of craftsmanship. Very detailed CCR’s (Covenants, Conditions and Requirements) dictate the overall aesthetic of Timber Creek: All homes must be either timber-frame or Craftsman style. Building height is limited to 30 feet. Roofing must be dark-hued architectural composition shingles. All structures must have wood or masonry horizontal siding.
Exterior paint colors are muted earth-tones compatible with the natural environment. At least 10 percent of the home front elevation (excluding window, door and roof elevations) must be stone, rock or brick. No closed/solid lot perimeter fences are allowed; minimal fencing is of common design and limited to privacy screening and utility service yards. Owners and builders must obtain written approval from the subdivision’s Architectural Review Committee before beginning work on new construction or any remodel affecting the exterior of a building.
The design and floor plans of many of the homes may look familiar to Portland-area home buyers: Taurus Homes, one of Timber Creek’s three developers, incorporated a number of Craftsman designs from Portland-based Alan Mascord Design Associates. Consequently, the standard features among many Timber Creek homes include vaulted ceilings, gas fireplaces, hardwood flooring, slab-granite kitchen counters, sold-wood doors and finishes, stainless-steel appliances.
In 2016, most homes on the market in Timber Creek were priced between $300,000 and $500,000, while most townhomes were priced between $200,000 and $250,000.
