One of KirE Builders Inc.’s newest communities, Black Canyon Estates, gives homebuyers the opportunity to customize the estate home of their dreams.
Located on the northeast side of the charming town of Ramona, this exclusive enclave is surrounded by surreal panoramic mountain and valley views. It features finely appointed homes at a terrific value with assorted interior and exterior options to customize.
Now in its final phases and with only a handful of homes remaining, buyers have a short window to take advantage of this great opportunity for countryside living.
Ted and Lori Sutherland are the newest homebuyers to bring their dream home to life at Black Canyon Estates.
“We drove by Black Canyon Estates over a year ago and really liked the area for the beautiful surroundings and the quiet atmosphere,” said Lori Sutherland. “We ended up buying the exact lot that we walked when we visited the community originally. The value we received here was better than other communities, and we can customize our home.”
The Sutherlands worked closely with KirE’s team on a wealth of upgrades to the interior and exterior of their home, including customized electrical throughout; finishes to the hardware and fixtures; custom cabinets; custom tile work for the entryway and back splashes; upgraded flooring; landscaping, including a built-in barbecue, fire pit and wrought iron gate; and a detached art studio with single-car garage.
“KirE helped us from start to finish with the plans for the art studio and gave forward-thinking suggestions on features to add,” she said. “They have come up with ideas that my husband and I never even thought of that will help us out in the long run.”
The art studio features upgraded interior appointments, multiple skylights and French doors, creating the perfect space for Lori Sutherland, a professional artist, to enjoy what she loves doing the most.
“I think I may end up living in the studio,” she joked.
In addition to the ability to create the home of their dreams, the minimum 2-acre lot sizes in the community were a huge draw.
“The space that you get is amazing,” she said. “We will be spread apart from our neighbors. Plus, the houses are unique. There are several attractive models from which to choose, all with different finish options. Not everyone has the same house, which is a huge plus.”
There are plans in the works for a backyard pool and a small vineyard to experiment with winemaking.
The Sutherlands are also excited about the standard solar system with each home, which will significantly reduce their electric bill.
With current inventory moving rapidly and several reservations held on phases 3 and 4, prospective buyers should seize the opportunity before it disappears. Those who act quickly can reserve their preferred, oversized lot and even select the floor plan perfectly suited for their lifestyle.
In addition, homebuyers can have total control over their home with available interior modifications, upgrades, and floor plan adjustments, depending on construction scheduling and floor plans.
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 also comes standard with a 3.0kW solar system and integrated in-home pest defense system.
Located at 23041 Stokes Road in Ramona, homes at Black Canyon Estates start from the $500,000s.
“The team at KirE Builders is so easy to work with,” said Lori Sutherland. “Everyone we have interfaced with has been very friendly, responsive and creative. I would absolutely recommend buying a home from KirE to anyone.”
