View Homes in Clark County, WA - Specializing in Elbow Room for the Soul

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

Craving "Nature As Neighbors" with ViewHomes™ of Clark County

We know it's a growing trend in our area. More and more people are craving a connection to Nature. While we know there are still many who enjoy the bright lights, big city lifestyle, our clients have one thing in common - they want to have Nature as their neighbor. To say we "get it," is an understatement, we not only "get it," we live it too.

Our home sits on an acre plus and we enjoy the sights and sounds of nature on a daily basis. This the first year we've had room enough for a large garden and it's been fun to design and build our terraced containers on a slope with southern exposure. Naturally, with deer and bunnies around, we've had to fence it with both species in mind.

At night, we see plenty of stars as we're not impacted by the light pollution of more urban areas. It gets so quiet here too. Quiet enough to hear the wind chimes melodies in a breeze, and quiet enough to hear the Little Washougal River tumble over the rocks and locks. Towering fir trees to the east remind us of the timeless strength, wisdom, and power of Mother Nature.

If you're hoping to find your View Home in Clark County, you're in the right spot. At Nature As Neighbors,™ we specialize in ViewHomes™, family estates, multi-generational living, and homes with large lots or acreage. It's all we do. Contact us today and let's get started.

Snapshot of the Market - May 2016

There are currently 326 Viewhomes for Sale at Nature As Neighbors. The average price is $ 692,450, but of course the price varies widely depending upon the home and acreage.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.
