Crescent View Development
Crescent View, a vision of Paul and Debbie Hagman of Mount Vernon, WA , began as a three-unit condominium development, quickly sold out and four more buildings were completed by 1998. Crescent View now features 72 deluxe one-, two- and three-bedroom condominium units and townhouses, three swimming pools, two spas, an indoor sport and racquetball court, tennis court, volleyball area, shuffleboard court, and lots of wide open spaces for kids and adults to play.
Situated on the Columbia River, owners at Crescent View enjoy the use of two boat launches and a convenient gas dock, allowing easy boat access up and down the river between the Rock Island and Wannapum dams. Personal watercraft rentals, a nine-hole golf course and a par-three executive course give golfers and water/jet ski enthusiasts plenty of fresh air and exercise.
For more quiet recreation, owners value sightings in the bird refuge, including bald eagles, white and grey Herons, owls, egrets and more. Across the river is a wildlife refuge, so elk, deer, bighorn sheep and many other animals can be seen along the shore.
Restaurants, wineries, orchards and fresh produce can be found within the area or short distances away. The Crescent Bar area is featured in the Experience Washington website, the official tourism site for the state of Washington.
Four Seasons of Fun
Although used mainly for summer getaways, owners live and use their homes year-round, taking advantage of the four distinct seasons of eastern Washington. During the winter and early spring, skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing are just a short 45-minute drive to Mission Ridge. Snowmobile enthusiasts find lots of open spaces in the area for wintry fun.
The immaculate grounds and picture-perfect buildings are cared for by an on-site property manager. An owner-elected board of directors oversees grounds and building maintenance, water and irrigation system quality, condominium finances, owner communication and the future vision for the association.
Recently, Crescent View created its own water system, conforming to increasingly stringent state water quality requirements. The water quality exceeds state standards and is a point of pride for all owners.
