October 14, 2011 Kooskooskee
Kooskooskee is a desirable community among mature adults in South Salem that offers beautiful park-like settings along Battle Creek. This neighborhood offers paved paths throughout common areas with lush manicured grounds. The Kaufman’s built out Kooskooskee, and it is comprised of two phases. Phase 1 was mostly built out in the early 80′s. This is known as Cayuse Circle. Phase 2 was mostly built out in the late 80′s and is named Pawnee Circle. Kooskooskee is comprised of Zero Lot Line Townhomes where homeowners own their unit, but it is shared with a common wall with their neighbor. Many of these homes are single level, offering a nice living experience for the older adult who does not want to navigate stairs. Many of the units also offer square footage above 2000 if someone desires more space. Kooskooskee has a healthy HOA that covers upkeep of the common grounds around Battle Creek.
At one time, finding these homes for sale was nearly impossible. It was not uncommon to find a buyers waiting list circling around the neighborhood. Times have changed a little in this community as well. There are currently 8 homes for sale in Kooskooskee with 2 closed sales since the beginning of 2011. The current asking prices range from $159,000 on up to $224,900 with all of them being located on Cayuse Circle. Pawnee Circle shows to be the more desirable of the two streets with their newer styles and more updated archetecture. The two homes that have sold were priced at $159,000 for a 1669 sf 2 story home, and $270,000 for a 2371 sf single level home.
