Casa Seton Development Update: from the Spring 2018 Newsletter

“Sales continue, now there are only 4 homes remaining unsold of 11 originally planned at the Casa Seton development in Potter Place. We welcome our new neighbors who have purchased their new homes.”

Casa Seton Update (from the Spring 2017 Newsletter)

The houses are going up on the Casa Seton property off Potter Place north of the Arizona Inn parking lot. Currently there are permits for 8 of the 11 properties. One of the big pines may not survive, although Bob Guigino told Alice Roe that they are trying to give the tree all the TLC that it can use. Unfortunately pine trees do not appreciate exposure of their roots. If the pine survives, there will be no sidewalk next to it on the south side of the entrance roadway. Three homes are sold per the Miramonte Homes website:
