Buyers have snapped up homesites in Tumble Creek, the private gated community in Cle Elum’s Suncadia Resort, in the first significant homesite release in Tumble Creek in more than a decade, according to a sales official.

Suncadia’s developer released 56 homesites and 37 have sold, including 23 at a homesite release event earlier this month, said Richard Seay, vice president of real estate for Suncadia. The number of sites, sold at a cumulative price of about $13 million, “are numbers we have not seen in Tumble Creek for over a decade,” Seay said.

Lots range in price from $200,000 to more than $1 million, according to a news release.

Seay estimated that about 91 percent to 92 percent of buyers have come from the Seattle metropolitan area. Suncadia is about 80 miles from Seattle via Interstate 90.

The homesite launch follows the recent ground-breaking of Tumble Creek’s new clubhouse, The Great House, expected to be the community’s social hub when it’s completed next year, the release said. Construction crews also are completing work on Paintbrush Lake, a three-acre series of five ponds connected by small waterfalls. Homesites include those with pond and golf course frontage, and mountain views.

The 2,600-acre Tumble Creek development is one of three areas comprising the Suncadia master-planned community. The other two are Suncadia, with the resort, its two golf courses, lodge and homesites; and Nelson Preserve, a homesite community. Both are public.
