McNary Estates Neighborhood
The McNary Estates Neighborhood is Keizer Oregon’s golf club community. Surrounding the McNary Golf Club lies a neighborhood of homes, condo homes, and townhomes. Developed by Ernie Fish, this is an HOA and CC&R neighborhood so homes are well-maintained and landscaped. The golf course winds through the neighborhood and most of the neighborhood backs up to a fairway or some kind of green space. The exception is the last of the 19 phases which was developed much later. It is the only section that tends to have fenced backyards and doesn’t back up to the course itself.
As the golf course weaves through the neighborhood, homeowners looking for golf course living are generally considering McNary Estates in addition to Creekside. The course is a public course and not included in the HOA dues. Development started in the 1980s so homes tend to have newer construction, but some will be dated decor-wise. It is a flat neighborhood as well so walking to the golf course or around the neighborhood is easy. The neighborhood has a gate on one entrance which residents can access with a code so there are no through streets in the neighborhood. As such, traffic in the neighborhood is just local traffic.
The single-family homes pay an HOA fee, but there are 5 additional, smaller associations that are condos and townhomes that pay a second HOA fee for the maintenance of those particular properties. Cambridge Greens is a small section of condos within McNary. Cambridge Green has 46 townhome units. Lakeshore has 38 condo units right as you enter the golf course. Castle Pines is 70 zero-lot line homes, and the last sub-association within McNary is the Fountains. The fountains is 32 condo units. All of these sub-associations have quarterly or monthly dues in addition to the annual McNary HOA fee.
Home prices in McNary Estates
Real estate prices start around $400,000 and head up from there to $1,000,000. Due to the large retiree population within the neighborhood, many homes are one-level homes.
McNary Estates has Keizer Elementary just on the other side of the gate mentioned above. It feeds into Claggett Creek Middle School, and McNary HS. It is near to amenities from grocery shopping, coffee shops, and a couple of local restaurants, but this is a car-dependent neighborhood.
If you are interested in golf course living, then you also might want to consider Illahe Hills or Creekside Estates, but they are both more upscale neighborhoods and are hilly, rather than the flat nature of McNary.
