Organic by design, our exclusive homes will fill the horizon with eloquent towers of silver and gold gables, our color theme. To save precious land, we’re building up, not out. Our homes will be two to four stories tall, making elevators a must. Garages will be located below grade with gentle slopes flattening to driveways in front of two to four car garages. The model homes we build will set the precedence for the entire development, however, some homes may be customized specifically for the buyer. Our group will retain exclusive rights to design and building

We’ll be using quality finishes inside and out. Real stone, real wood, and real stucco, unlike other houses built today. All of the homes will be closely related in style and materials, creating a development that greatly pleases the eye.

Thirty five extraordinary acres of lush green, rolling hills, with thirty building lots, leaving plenty of room to play

Pervious roads lined with crushed marble will wind gracefully around the lots, and common grounds, beautifully landscaped.

Gardens of flowers, benches and bird bathes will be centered in each cluster of homes, shared only by these home owners. A small park will surround a large gazebo with a massive stone fireplace. Picnic tables and park benches will be scattered about.

Split in half by a crystal clear creek and waterfall, the common areas will be landscaped to enhance Mother Nature’s architecture to her fullest.

Five 1/2 acre lots overlook the creek, and twenty five, 1/3 acre lots cluster in groups of five

A cozy country club offers the members a luxurious place to relax, and get to know their neighbors. We’re not building just another home development, we’re building a quality, high end community of friends and family.

Our group will start up the home owner’s association, turning it over to the residents as soon as the development is close to completion and established. Like most country clubs, there will be a monthly membership fee, but unlike most country clubs, the residents will own, operate and profit from the business side of the development, which will soon support maintenance, ground keeping and club house services, as well as seasonal parties and celebrations. The cafe will serve coffee and other various drinks, breakfast rolls and muffins, sandwiches and desserts. The kitchen will be fully licensed and operational as soon as possible, offering convenience to residents, and giving realtors a place to sit with potential buyers, and take in the view.

Start up begins as soon as financing is in place, with three to five years completion time anticipated


Three model homes will set the stage for whats to come, starting off with the three bedroom, 5000 square foot option displayed

You have arrived

Eloquent from inside out with gorgeous French Tudor exterior styling.  Walk into a wonderland of architecture with gracefully curved stairs wrapping up and around to the second floor. The foyer is open to above, where a lovely plant shelf allows vine to drape down into the entry. Garden doors open up to a roof top patio where a formal sitting arrangement entertains guests. Opt for two stories with three bedrooms, or three stories with six. Take the elevator up to the top level, or down to the basement. Beauty combined with casual living makes this plan the perfect family home

Box bay windows scattered throughout the home with some having storage beneath seats

Main floor level has twelve foot ceiling height with second and third level coming in at ten and nine. Spacious great room shows back to back seating with one side viewing the fireplace, and the other a big screen TV. Large bay windows offer a special place for a sitting arrangement or even large clusters of plants, creating an array of greenery. Large kitchen accommodates a crowd with a large, bay shaped bar. Kitchen is open to the great room bringing the family together. A cozy breakfast nook opens to a screened porch that’s perfectly sized for a dining table and small seating arrangement. Covered veranda off the great room doubles as a large balcony for the incredible master suite above. His and hers walk in closets, and his and hers toilet closets too. Over sized shower allows for water features. Linen can be accessed from master bath or laundry room.

Basement not included
5000 SF / three bedroom suites
6000 SF / six bedroom suites

Four car garage is located in the lower level basement, however, you won’t need a sloped lot to pull it off. Retaining walls will hold back the soil, and keep the garage out of sight. The entry drive slopes gently, flattening as it reaches a generous parking space in front of the stalls. Enter into the locker room from the garage where stairs up or elevator is accessed. Stop the basement there, or finish the entire level for game, workout or spa area.
