A Little History

The 545-acres of Coleman Hills was originally owned by a group of industrious homesteaders settling around the Coleman Creek waterway. In the late 1950s, as building around the State of Oregon boomed, the property was purchased by lumber companies and much of the forest’s tranquility was compromised in favor of timber resources.


Oren and Susan Posner purchased the property in 2012 and embarked on the arduous endeavor of rehabilitating the forest with a longtime family friend, Rory O’Byrne. For ten years, they have worked with the Oregon Department of Forestry, the Department of Fish and Wildlife and local environmental nonprofits to re-create a healthy ecosystem as well as a safe and inspiring place to live.


Coleman Hills is a rural, gated community and forest preserve with panoramic view homesites. Rarely granted by Jackson County, the expansive homesites were approved as a result of the comprehensive environmental initiatives undertaken by the owners, in concert with the County. Although the properties are just minutes from the towns of Ashland, Medford and Jacksonville, with all their many cultural and outdoor recreational activities, they still enjoy the privacy and freedom afforded by large acreage parcels. Future residents will now have the opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of a forest that has been cultivated for diversity, fire-resiliency, and wildlife habitat. Our vision is for Coleman Hills residents to be the pioneers of a new era, to live harmoniously within a natural landscape as it transforms back into the beautiful old growth forest it once was.


The owners have already installed private, high-producing wells; obtained County septic approvals; and installed electricity and roadways. As a result, Buyers can come with their builders and immediately begin the build process and enjoy the fruits of the owners’ labors.

Oren and Susan Posner are the founders of Lane Forest Products, a company that has beneficially transformed the recycled wood products industry. Rory O’Byrne is a 6th generation Oregonian whose career has focused on early-stage growth in real estate, technology and manufacturing.


Our mission is to create a premier residential community in Southern Oregon. We envision homes and landscapes that complement the natural beauty of the property. Our plan is to create ten extraordinary parcels, beautifully integrated into the landscape, for the fortunate homeowners to enjoy for years to come.
