If you’re looking for an Eco friendly community perhaps Hartstene Pointe might be just what you are looking for. The community is what matters when you look for a weekend escape or retirement home. Do your neighbors want a green environment? The Hartstene Pointe Maintenance Association was incorporated as a non-profit corporation on June 12, 1970 by the Quadrant Corporation, a subsidiary of Weyerhaeuser Inc.
At Hartstene Pointe we believe in the beauty of our environment. The Quadrant Corporation decided in the late1960s to develop a special place to reflect on all the beauty the Pacific NW has to offer. From the moment you drive through the gate you will see they succeeded.
In order to build a community of this size the planners had to deal with a hard layer of clay that would make septic systems almost impossible. The solution was a sewage treatment plant and a secondary, the first in Mason County. I can say that this is unheard of with such developments. The planners also decided to put all the wiring and utilities underground. This was an added expense that none of the other recreation areas we visited decided was important.
Hartstene Pointe also has 3.5 miles of pristine beach waterfront for owners and guests to enjoy. We all own it and protect it. My family also enjoys the over 5 miles of maintained trails that wander through the woods with awesome views of Puget Sound and the Olympic and Cascade Mountains. Couple our trail system with our 3 covered picnic BBQ areas and you can walk and eat all day by the water.
Another feature that many of my clients enjoy is Hartstene Pointe’s central waste and recycling center. You won’t find garbage cans sitting by the driveways; this is very messy for those who come for the weekend. Instead we just take are trash and recycling to the center and sort the garbage from the recycled materials. No thought of hauling it home or dealing with the wildlife.
As you can see, an Eco community is not just a label. It is planned from the very start and is very much a state of mind and commitment…
Make an appointment with me and witness Hartstene Pointe for yourself. I would be proud to be your guide and agent!
