How we went from buying land to building great family homes came from a single question :
“Do we sell the land to others or develop it ourselves?”
We are new but we have history.
Stafford Homes and Land started when our two Principals, both developers; combined their efforts and began to seek out parcels of land for redevelopment. As Stafford Land Company succeeded in procuring build-able properties, the new 'homes' division was established and put to task.
The first projects slated for construction were to replace run down, neighborhood eyesores with fine new homes that would enhance the blocks they inhabited. It was a good first step. People truly loved the homes we crafted, especially the ‘1920’s Sears Catalog Bungalow’ reinterpretation built on Harney Street in Portland. In fact that home sold the first day on the market.
In time there were a few choice parcels that begged for new home communities to be created. The question being “Do we sell the land to others or develop it ourselves?” We can do this! With that we began to build our first ‘community project’ in autumn 2014 with just 6 home sites in Molalla on Finney’s Avenue. Seeing the project sell through was proof that we could do even more.
Since then our company has grown to meet the needs of the business, and by doing so we had completed 25 brand new homes and pulled 70 permits in the cities of Canby, Molalla, Forest Grove, and Silverton Oregon. Our new homes meet the need for energy efficient, well-engineered houses that offer fresh new floor plans and real value. They are the very homes we enjoy building and what we want to live in.
For 2016 we greeted the New Year with foundation dig outs for two new luxury estates at Tumwater in West Linn Oregon, site of the 2016 NW Natural Street of Dreams event. It is the culmination of many years’ efforts to finally see the development our property at the top of Pete’s Mountain bear fruit. The fruit is Tumwater Vineyard and the Barrel House Winery, centerpiece of this 63 acre community of luxury homes. The show is going on through August so come celebrate with us this summer!
