Basinview Estates Cluster Subdivision (“Basinview”) is located at the crest of Old Snow
Basin Road adjacent to Cache National Forest land are situated on 30 acres of land that is for the
most part in it’s pristine state. (A single residence home is situated on 3 acres of the property.)
An authentic mountain character that is appropriate to the Basinview setting, is the basis
from which all buildings must evolve. The Architect/Designer of custom homes at Basinview
must evoke the qualities of authenticity, proportionality, craftsmanship and sustainability.
Materials of heavy texture, deep recessed windows, protective overhangs, roof forms of character,
strong and protective architectural massing, colors of the earth, and significant usage of stone and
wood will be the primary design elements that will be required in all Basinview homes.
The Architectural Guidelines have been created to implement this philosophy, particularly
addressing architectural design and site planning in order to provide direction to homesite Owners
for the design of their dwellings, and to ensure compatibility within the unique environment of
Basinview. It is not the purpose of these Guidelines to create look-alike dwellings or suggest that
they all have identical colors and materials, but to create a harmonious architectural approach that
is sympathetic to the incredible natural setting of Basinview.
It is expected that the design of each dwelling will be tailored to the unique features of each
individual homesite. No preconceived designs suited for other environments or landscape will be
permitted. Each design must begin with a thorough site evaluation and understanding of the
topography, sun angles, view corridors, and relationships to ridgelines and native landscape. It is
only after a complete understanding of these natural design constraints that a homesite Owner and
their architect/designer can begin a homesite design.
In order to assist each Owner in the environmentally sound and aesthetically compatible
design of their dwelling, a comprehensive Architectural Review Process bas been established
pursuant to the Architectural Guidelines, providing each Owner the opportunity to draw upon the
expertise and knowledge which has been acquired during the planning and development of
Basinview. Since the preservation and enhancement of the unique landscape at Basinview are of
primary concern, the Architectural Control Committee (the “Committee”) has been established and
charged with the responsibility of ensuring that these principles are adhered to throughout all
phases of development. For this reason, the Architectural Review Process bas been established,
encompassing the following five phases:
1. The Pre-Design Conference, during which each homesite Owner along
