This place is like nowhere else. We have the largest collection of private residences in a woodlands preservation setting anywhere on the North Shore. Pair that with miles of bikes paths, woods packed with hundred year-old trees and a rich natural environment on the ground below, and you’ll see why there’s nothing like it anywhere. With easy access to major highways and train lines, the city is only a hop, skip, and a jump away.

Privacy, simplicity, personality, accessibility: our residents protect it, cherish it, and are committed to its continued prosperity.
