Homes for Sale in Breckenridge - Camas, WA Neighborhood of the Week
Debb Janes, REALTOR®, EcoBroker Camas, Washington (The Carl Group, LLC)

Great Neighborhoods to call Home in Camas, WA
Each week, we'll feature one of the many great neighborhoods nestled in the hills and meadows around Camas, Washington. We think Camas offers a great lifestyle with the charm of small-town living with access to the big city amenities of nearby Portland, Oregon. 

Washington has no state income tax and that makes it popular with both young families, and retirees. However, be forewarned, Camas does have some of the highest local taxes in Clark County. Those of us who live here don't mind. Those taxes pay for our top-rated schools and an abundance of parks and trails.

The "everything" includes the usual bells and whistles; gourmet kitchen with slab granite and GE® stainless steel appliances, a washer and dryer, Nexia Home Intelligence, a tankless water heater, hardwood floors, garage door openers, and more.

The neighborhood is located north of the Columbia River, minutes from charming downtown Camas and the Portland International Airport. Residents enjoy the highly rated Camas School District, nearby parks, trails, and lakes, and unique shops and eateries. In short, it has that all imporant aspect of location, location, location.

The largest, and most expensive home currently for sale is 4209 square feet, with a river and valley view. It has 5 bedrooms, 3.1 baths, with an interesting configuration of a huge Master located on the lower level of the three story plan.  There are two listings for this particular floor plan, the other also mentiones river views, but it is priced $20 thousand lower. The most expensive is priced just over $680,000 and the other is priced at $660,900. Something must be different!

Homes for Sale in Camas, WA with a Columbia River View
Debb Janes, REALTOR®, EcoBroker Camas, Washington (The Carl Group, LLC)

Homes for Sale in Camas WA with a  Columbia River View

Let’s face it, a good view gives a home added appeal. It’s a wow factor when large windows open up to a stunning vistas featuring some of nature’s finest gifts. In Camas, one of those stunning, and highly desirable views, is the Columbia River.

The Columbia River is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest, and, by volume, the fourth largest in the United States. It flows for more than 1200 miles from the base of the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia, to the Pacific Ocean at Astoria, Oregon and Illwaco, Washington. 

Camas Neighborhoods featuring homes with Columbia River views

Some of the best spots to see the river are from Prune Hill. The cinder cone of a now-extinct volcano was once covered in Prune orchards - hence it’s name. Prune Hill, with its approximate 765 ft 233 m elevation is high enough to give many residents unobstructed Columbia River views.  

In addition to excellent views, Prune Hill neighborhoods are within close proximity to the high service areas of 192nd Avenue, 164th and Mill Plain. Plus, Portland International Airport is less than 15 minutes away. Residents stay active too, with recreational opportunities nearby such as the Lacamas Heritage Trail and Park system.

Homes on Prune Hill range in style and age. Buyers can still find some older, more affordable options with remodeling  potential.  And, there are plenty of stylish and luxurious homes too, some built on larger parcels with private settings.

There are quite a few new construction projects too, either currently being built, or scheduled to start this Spring. Many of the newer construction homes are built to save you money, and carry Energy Star certifications.

Camas Schools are well-regarded and highly rated academically, therefore, many families with young children find the area very desirable. Sports, music, science, and arts programs give children a variety of extracurricular activities.

The Real Estate Market for Prune Hill - Spring 2014

There are 8 homes pending in our RMLS, and there have been 16 sales reported in the last 3 months. The median sold price is $390,000, but that number has been skewed by sales of small, dated fixers, and several small, older condominium units.

A little History:
This is a beautiful community located up on the top of "Prune Hill" in Camas, WA.  It is a well-kept area with high quality, award winning school system. Prune hill is known as such since it used to be prune orchards. Here is a little history about just that from the Camas Washougal Historical society:  "The Camas area was first visited by white men as early as 1806 during the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and again in 1844 by a party of settlers who wintered along the Columbia River. In the late 1840s and early 1850s saw mills were built in Lacamas Lake. From the 1860s or 1870s on, settlers began staking their claims in Grass Valley and atop what would be named Prune Hill. In 1880 Clark County had more farms than any other county in the state except Spokane County. The west slopes and top of the hill were planted with prune trees, probably beginning in the 1880s and 1890s. a Mr. Boyer was the first man in the area to put in a big prune orchard which was located on what become known as Prune Hill. Other people coming into the territory also put in prune trees. There were up to seven dryers in the Prune Hill area alone, though none remained today."

From the Prune Hill Park website:
"Prune Hill Park Homeowners Association (PHPHA)
consist of 131 Homes designated Phase I, II, and III. Those residing in the Association have access to and responsibility for over 11 Acres of Open or Green Space, 7 Acres or Natural Habitat, and 1-2 Miles of Walking Trail. "

How to get there:
Prune Hill is located north off of Highway 14.
Probably the fastest way to get there is Highway 14 west, turn north on 192nd and turn almost immediately right onto Forest Home Road and go up the hill to NW Astor St. That's the Prune Hill area.   Current Prune Hill homes for sale today!
