Our Neighborhoods


Anderson Road is 9.15 acres surrounded by views of the Butte, Stormy Mountain, and the Chelan River Gorge. The land is owned by Chelan Valley Housing Trust and located at 38 Anderson Road. This property will be developed into 41 income qualified homes for ownership and five market rate lots within a span of 5 years. While still in initial design and pro-forma phases, CVHTs vision for Anderson Road would be to serve attainable home ownership to local wage earners in the Chelan Valley in a setting that matches the agricultural and aesthetic beauty of the town. We will accomplish this by using farm style and craftsman design for homes, creating a trails, views and open space oriented layout for the neighborhood, and utilizing public grants, private funding, and community fundraising to reach the target pricing goals that will actually make homes attainable for our community.

The Anderson Road development is a result of true community effort and communication. CVHT previously had a donation of 2 acres from the Lookout (local developer and neighborhood), available just below the Lookout property in Chelan. The 7 Acres Foundation was in the middle of utilizing the 9 acres for a Community Center, when early talks resulted in the idea of a land swap and purchase, 2 acres intown for 5 acres just outside of town with a purchase the other 4 at a discounted rate. The Community Center at Lake Chelan now has a new home that is closer to town and more accessible for youth and the community, and has even expanded and purchased neighboring acreage. CVHT now has 9 beautiful acres to build a community of attainable mixed rate housing. CVHT can’t thank the Lookout and the 7 acres foundation enough for making this dream come true!

We’ve completed our initial public hearing for the development, with one more upcoming and have semi-finalized the conceptual design (pictured to the right).

Keep checking back for more details on this huge community effort.


Our very first neighborhood! Located at the corner of North Emerson Street and East Chelan Avenue, this new community of five townhomes has been built and sold to income qualified buyers to show our community and funders that attainable homes can really be built!

The existing 1950’s home originally built on the double lot was demolished in November 2019 by way of a Fire Department controlled burn and practice. Groundbreaking for Emerson Village happened in June 2019. The homes were designed by Forte Architects of Wenatchee and built by K&L Homes in Chelan. Each of the 1179 square foot townhomes are two-story, with two bedrooms and 1.5 baths. Parking provided onsite as well as on the street.

Homes are currently all SOLD to community members that make our Valley a special place. These folks support our local agriculture, restaurants, government, and community with their hard work and commitment to Chelan and now we’ve returned the favor!

Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to raise the roof on attainable housing.  During the build-out of Emerson Village we relied on our Chelan village a lot and can’t thank our countless community members and volunteers enough for making this “impossible” build into a dream come true!
