The Silverwood community just broke ground and is so excited to introduce the high desert to a new way of living. Located in Hesperia on land where foothills join rugged canyons, mesas meet ridgelines and views change with the seasons.
Silverwood is about 9,399 acres that will be filled with around 15,600 homes, and 5,000 acres of parks and open space.
HD Daily News connected with John Ohanian, General Manager for Silverwood about what will be brought to the community. “Our community life is very important to us,” said John. He went on to explain that there will be five elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school in Silverwood. “We want to embrace the outdoor lifestyle in Silverwood, having people know your front porch is your trailhead.”
Silverwood has been designed around two primary, walkable mixed-use town centers intended to serve as the hubs of daily life complete with shopping, rug stores, fitness, restaurants, retail, and professional office and commercial.
The community is said to offer a fully immersive, lifestyle-focused Welcome Center adjacent to the primary Phase 1 amenities to ensure all prospective homebuyers understand and can engage with the community’s lifestyle asset.
Designers for the Silverwood homes have come up with five different models for homes, Reginal Ranch, Modern Ranch, Territorial, Farm House, and Spanish style. Silverwood’s Phase 1 development area will provide opportunities for six different lot sizes. Phase 1 will be located on the northern side of the community and will be accessed from Ranchero Road.
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) will also run through Silverwood in the southeastern portion of the property and will have access points connecting it to the community. The community intends to engage PCT hikers and the local community through events and programming at specific times of year to honor the PCT hikers and the outdoor adventure spirit inherent to the community.
Silverwood Lake will be adjacent to the community on its southern border. The lake features: picnicking, hiking trails, swimming beaches, and designated areas for boating, water skiing, and fishing. Silverwood Lake is surrounded by 2,400 acres of ancient Douglas Firs, Black Oak trees, and spectacular views of the mountain creeks.
The Silverwood team hopes to see homes being built in 2024.
