It's almost time for families to begin moving into homes in the new Scotts Valley Town Center Collection, townhouse development on Blue Bonnet Lane.
The project, by City Ventures, will eventually be 46 all-electric/all-solar Craftsman-style homes.
So far, approximately 20 have been put on the market and about all of them have been snapped up.
Mary Gradinger, the sales manager, said people love Scotts Valley schools and the easy commute to the Silicon Valley or the beach. The engery-efficient, state-of-the-art home doesn't hurt either, she said.
"People, they like them," Gradinger said. "We're seeing so many buyers come from Silicon Valley. It's a lifestyle choice."
She added, "I'm amazed how many people are willing to commute."
The homes have some incredible views of the Santa Cruz Mountains and are walking distance to the Metro station where commuters can hop a bus to the Silicon Valley.
The project broke ground a year ago after much anticipation. Among the 46 units, pirced around $500,000 each for 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, there will be six affordable housing units.
Gradinger said the first families will move into their new homes in December.
An open house event last weekend offered potential buyers the chance to learn more about the financial and environmental benefits of the all-electric/all-solar homes, but the City Ventures sales office open daily for anyone curious.
