About Fox Hill

Fox Hill is a gated community of single-family homes southeast of Olympia, WA, established in 2006. It is located off Spurgeon Creek Road between the Yelm Highway and the Rainier Highway in the Sunwood Lake, Lake Saint Clair and Pattison Lake area.

Literally, A Green Community

There are 71 lots at Fox Hill. A large amount of green belt space distinguishes Fox Hill from many other subdivisions and a tantalizing mixture of a single family neighborhood in a rural setting. The homes, which are usually on one-half acre lots and larger, are adjacent to some green space. Most lots are in front of undevelopable forested lands. All are adjacent to green acreage.  Many of the homes have territorial views.  In addition, four 40-acre forested lots in the subdivision each support up to one home.  Approximately 88 acres of green space, much of it forest, are owned as a common area by the Fox Hill Homeowners' Association.

hawks, toads, frogs, salamanders, rabbits, and coyotes.

Spurgeon Creek forms the northern boundary of the subdivision.

The subdivision is also near large amounts of forest lands that
 are part of Joint Base Lewis McChord.


Great People

 Another unique feature is the great people who live there, tied closely together by a sense of community that is unusual in a suburban neighborhood. It is a diverse neighborhood that includes everyone from working families to retired couples..

Homeowners Association

Much of the adjacent acreage is managed by the homeowners’ association. The association directors are all residents of Fox Hill. The homeowners association maintains the gate, park space and common areas, and the single private road that loops through the community: Fox Ridge Lane Southeast.

The association also enforces covenants to protect the quality of living and appearance in the community. The subdivision has many of the features of a city, including street lights, fire hydrants and a park.

Below, there are 71 lots in the subdivision. Lots 67, 68 and 69 are 40-acre parcels that may also accommodate a single home on each lot. (A home is built on 40-acre Lot 66.) The dark green area shows 88 acres of green belt, including forest, wetlands, and storm water drainage areas, that is owned by the Fox Hill Homeowners Association. To the south are additional forested lands owned by Joint Base Lewis-McChordClick here for plat map (pdf).
