Tehachapi, California

Sage Ranch is a 138acre site located between the parallel arterial roads of Valley Boulevard and Pinon Street near Downtown Tehachapi. The site is within a half mile from the City Hall and Central Tehachapi, and in close proximity to many shops, restaurants, and public spaces in the Downtown District.

The Master Plan for Sage Ranch is consistent with numerous new planned communities throughout California with an orientation toward smaller lots, less maintenance, walkable communities and access to nearby parks and community amenities. New Urbanist planning and Traditional Neighborhood Design provide the over-riding context for the community development. Realizing that there is a greater orientation to open space in a small-town setting; the 7.2 Home/Acre Gross density is actually lower than most of the new planned communities that are planned throughout California.
The smaller lots allow several strong incentives toward quality community development: Orientation to garden, patio and porch spaces provide more community interaction, less yard maintenance and lower water and energy consumption. The higher density of homes will allow for a Home Owner Association to be developed at much more reasonable cost. The Smaller homes comply with the typical market range between $250K- $320K as well, while allowing some higher priced homes to occur with a high anticipation for equity improvement. All homes will be designed with special charm and character reminiscent of the great historic communities in America, with porches fronting beautiful tree lined streets.
