For Fred and Leslie Loring and their four kids, making the move to Black Canyon Estates by KirE Builders Inc. was an easy call.
The Ramona residents scouted the 35-home community for months before finally taking action.
“The biggest factor for us was getting in at the right time,” said Fred Loring. “We had been interested in these homes for a while and couldn’t be happier with our decision. They give a great ‘bang for the buck’ and feature million-dollar views, which are spectacular during the day or night.”
Originally hailing from Alpine, the Lorings found themselves getting priced out of that market.
“We were able to buy a home with a fair amount of acreage for the price of a home with a postage stamp-sized lot in other communities,” said Loring. “Up here, it’s affordable to have a single-family detached home with land.”
With younger children, the Lorings have embraced the local surroundings to stay active and entertain their kids.
“We really like the outdoor destinations and opportunities to explore. There are tons of trails for hiking and biking, plus great local spots like Black Canyon Falls, with pools deep enough to swim, and Witch Creek Falls,” he continued. “Julian is right up the road, so we like to go there for winter activities with the kids, like sledding, when the season is right.”
They also enjoy the small-town values and charm that come with living in Ramona,
“Everyone knows everyone and looks out for each other. It is great to have that feeling of security.”
Beyond the impressive views and tight-knit community, the large lot size at their Black Canyon Estates home has allowed the Lorings to spread out and achieve a true countryside lifestyle.
“My youngest (child) and I enjoy shooting archery in the yard, which is something we couldn’t normally do in an urban neighborhood,” said Loring. “Plus, we have the opportunity to customize our land and use it any way we want.
“The bottom line is KirE has gone above and beyond from the get-go. They offer top-notch customer service and have always made us feel like we are their No. 1 customer and priority,” concluded Loring. “They did a great job on our home. I would definitely recommend buying a home with KirE. Adam and Josh are an absolute joy to work with.”
For home buyers who are under contract in March, KirE is offering incentives of $5,000 toward design center upgrades, which may be applied toward personalizing the home’s interior finishes. In addition, home buyers may have total control over their home with available interior modifications, upgrades, and floor plan adjustments, depending on construction scheduling and floor plans. Please see a sales agent for details.
With six exquisitely appointed floor plan options ranging from three to five bedrooms and 2,200 to 2,710 square feet, Black Canyon Estates offers semi-custom estate home living at a more affordable price than the surrounding communities of Poway and Scripps Ranch. Each home sits on a 2-plus acre lot and comes standard with a 3.0kW solar system and integrated in-home pest defense system.
Phase 1 is completely sold out and four homes have just been released in phase 2, with four more phases planned to release later in the year. Reserve your home today before they are all gone.
Located at 23041 Stokes Road in Ramona, homes at Black Canyon Estates start from the $500,000s. Visit www.BCEramona.com or call 877-612-7465 for more information.
