Ours was the eighth of the Orchards Communities built. All 92 homes were built and occupied between January 2004 and July 2005.

Previous to the Orchards of Sweetapple this was a farm known as the Holtin Property that consisted of 18.74 acres. The Orchards Group was the developer with Griff Ransom and Dwight Anderson as the builders.

The community consists of 23 buildings and a separate clubhouse containing a full kitchen, meeting room, sitting room, restrooms and an exercise room. There is also a swimming pool adjacent to the Clubhouse and a Garden located behind the Car Wash.

Each building consists of two floor plans. The Canterbury is a three bedroom unit with the possibility of having the 3rd bedroom converted to a Den; The Abbey is a two bedroom unit.
