Excess land at Sierra View Country Club in Roseville could be developed with housing

Excess land next to a private golf course could be the site of more housing, in a city already leading the region in new home construction.

Roseville City Council will consider an item Wednesday to approve a subdivision map for undeveloped land on the east side of Sierra View Country Club, at 105 Alta Vista Ave.

Club representatives did not return messages left with the general manager and through the club’s website. According to the agenda, the subdivision map would create 75 residential lots, one private road and 11 “private common area” lots.

The total area to be subdivided is about 23.1 acres. The subdivided lots would range from as small as 5,015 square feet to as large as 10,210 square feet, though there’s only one larger than 10,000 square feet. The majority of the lots are smaller than 8,000 square feet.

Streets within the community, called Sierra View Country Club on maps with the agenda item, would be named after famous golf courses such as Torrey Pines and Sawgrass. Access to the subdivision, directly east of the golf course, would appear to come from Diamond Oaks Road on the north and Shasta Street on the south.

The size, layout and style of future homes is not included in the maps with the agenda item. The private common lots are shown as lots scattered through the planned neighborhood, but have no other designation, such as open space.

The maps do make reference to a homeowners association for the new subdivision.

Real estate information website Reonomy shows the property for the new subdivision sold in July to SVCC 75 LLC, with a Roseville address, for $7.12 million.

The address for the buyer corresponds to homebuilder JMC Homes, which did not immediately return a request for comment through its website Monday. The company’s website does not show a pending project for the Sierra View location.

Roseville is consistently at or near the top for cities with the most new home sales in the Sacramento region. In September, Roseville had 135 new home sales, more than double the next highest city, Sacramento, which had 65, according to the North State Building Industry Association. Overall, the region had 485 sales in September.

Most of Roseville’s sales, though, are in new home communities on the west side of the city. Sierra View would be an infill project about a mile north of downtown Roseville.
