Orchard Lands, a residential subdivision on Atlas Road about .5 miles north of Seltice Way on the western edge of Coeur d' Alene was originally brought before city council for consideration in the mid 2000's, but many factors hit the residential development and caused the project to stall out all together . Since then Orchard Lands has sat as a "ghost subdivision" , with all the infrastructure in place but one very important thing missing, homes.
But it is now 2013 and the local economy and housing markets are bouncing back and Orchard Lands finds itself bouncing back as well. Orchard Lands is now back in business and being sold by the local Coldwell Banker Schniedmiller Realty office, with agent Darren Ducote as the primary contact. Homes in the project are being built by Copper Basin Construction of Hayden and the signs at each entry point note that new homes are available from the 100,000's and home prices do vary from the mid 100,000's to over 200,000 depending on the style and size of the home, for more info on pricing contact the agent in charge.
Some construction has already started at the Orchard Lands site with a model home coming in the near future. It's unclear as to the exact number of new homes that will be built at Orchard Lands however the site is large and stretches along Atlas from Appaloosa Dr. in the north and the freeway on the south. Homes at the new subdivision can also include space for an RV and have numerous upgrades that can be added for a price.
