The Retreat at Seabranch was permitted to DiVosta by various county and state authorities using the following criteria. This information is taken from our Planned Unit Development (PUD) maps.
- Our house slabs are built between 18.5 and 23 feet above sea level. Check your own house survey for your specific elevation and other interesting information.

Retreat Map Facts
|313.4 acre||Area within our boundary. (Approximate area of 237 football fields including the end zones.)|
|Represents the Retreat perimeter. If you were to hike beginning at our entry and the Lost Lake/Doubletree entry, to the end of Lake 1 at the end of Angelina, proceed around the lake and walk the length of Lake 2 back to the end of Lake 2 across from the Clubhouse where the fence gate is located, this would be about 1/3 of your hike. Continue from the gate and follow the fence and drainage ditch the length of Eldorado, behind Lake 10 at the end of Eldorado. Then proceed east along Glacier Terrace and Hawks Nest, and continue following the fence behind the ends of La Creek and Maryhill and along Nicolete to our East Entry. To finish, hike back to the start point.|
|Seawind School perimeter wall/fence|
|5.46 miles||Retreat and Seawind perimeters, combined.|
|This is the approximate length of our privately owned paved street system. It would also follow that this number to a degree represents the length of water pipe, sewer pipe, cable and phone trunk lines, and electric power cable. Street and swale drainage pipe systems and lake pipe systems are probably twice that length. Irrigation piping and control wires are so many miles long that I can’t even guess.|
|0.84 miles||The length of our drainage ditch located on our property. It begins by the fence gate across from the Clubhouse and ends at the Seawind ditch off-property behind Lake 10 at the end of Eldorado Way.|
Zero Lot Line and Water Conditioners / Softeners
The Zero Lot Line exists and affects all owners of Oakmonts and Carlyles; Capri IIIs do not have one. It is the 3’1” strip of land that adjoins the blind side or blocking wall side of the homes. It begins (facing the home from the street) at the front corner of the garage and runs 3’1” wide to the rear property line.
Problems with water conditioners/softeners have been developing for the past several years and action by the Retreat Board of Directors and ACC is necessary to protect and maintain our community as a whole.
