After you tour the three open houses take a walk on one of the most impressive homesites in The Forest. We have per-developed Homesite No. 1 to demonstrate the size and possibilities for building at The Forest. One of the big differences (literally) between The Forest and other estate neighborhoods in the region is the size of our homesites. These are true acreage parcels allowing residences that can be expansive while also providing true separation and privacy. Homesite No. 1 sits in an a lush oak hammock and backs onto a view of the lake at Gazebo Park. It sets up for a home that will have an impressive drive to a home among the stately oaks. It's a must see to truly experience the possibilities for estate living at The Forest.
