Living in nature has never felt so comfortable. With views of Mount Rainier and set amid the woods, wetlands, ponds, meadows, and trails of the highland forest, Tehaleh was designed for you to create meaningful connections with the outdoors. (In fact, our name is derived from the words for “highlands” and “the land above.”) In our five-year history, our community has been recognized for achievement in land and community planning, while conserving wetlands and respecting the natural topography and hydrology of the land.
Our commitment to eco-friendly living also extends indoors. The homes in our neighborhoods feature the latest in energy-efficient heating and cooling, so you can save money every month and help preserve our natural resources for future generations.
While Newland is committed to preserving a minimum of 25% of overall land area in its communities, Tehaleh has preserved an incredible 39%—approximately 1,800 of its 4,756 acres. And the use of native, indigenous or naturalized plant species—in conjunction with efficient irrigation controllers—helps to conserve water.SEE OUR TRAILS + PARKS

One of the big reasons why we chose Tehaleh was because of all the trails here. Being so close to nature is really awesome. Nowhere else compares.
It feels like a retreat when you go home. When you drive up and see the mountain view; it’s amazing to know that this is home.
“It feels like Mt. Rainier is watching over us here.”
I can’t tell you how much I love the weekends here—I like to take her for walks on the trails, exercise a bit, and go have a coffee. Everything is close, everybody is friendly, and I never have to worry about a thing.
