Awbrey Butte Real Estate

Awbrey Butte is located on the highly desirable west side of Bend Oregon.  It is one of Bend’s most exclusive neighborhoods.  It features large lots well over half an acre, large Ponderosa pines, juniper and many native plants. It has great mountain views of Mount Bachelor and much of the Cascade mountain range. 

For the purpose of this article we will be talking about the Awbrey Butte development even though there are several highly desirable neighborhoods on Awbrey Butte and at the base. This can be a little confusing but homes and developments aside the hill in west Bend is Awbrey Butte. 

100 years ago before the first house was built there was only native trees, plants and wildlife.  Years later the West Hills subdivision was built at the base of Awbrey Butte.  Then in the late 70s Brooks Resources developed Awbrey Butte which is the subject of this discussion.

Which side to live on?

The south side of Awbrey Butte features homes with views to the south and down town Bend.  A few choice homes on the south side of the Butte have nice views of Mount Bachelor.  Along with solar exposure and warm winter days this part of the butte is the closest to down town Bend, Newport Market and all the activities that occur in the down town area.

The west side of Awbrey Butte features spectacular views of the Cascade Mountain.  Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top, South Sister, Middle Sister, North Sister, Black Butte, Mt. Jefferson and Mt.
