We call it Colvard Farms. You'll call it your own private nature preserve.
With open fields, hardwood groves, pine forests and spectacular ponds, along with an abundant mix of wildlife, it has the look and feel of land you would expect to find only by traveling deep into the countryside.
Characteristic tree species include southern red oak, poplar, sweet gum and loblolly pine. The site is home to a number of wildlife species that are more typical to large tracts of piedmont forest, including red-shouldered hawks, great horned owls and eastern wild turkeys.
This land is a special place and we take its stewardship very seriously. Approximately one-third of the property will remain undeveloped as permanent open space. And because most of Colvard Farms is bounded by Jordan Lake and public recreation lands, preservation of this natural state is assured for future generations.
Our goal for Colvard Farms was to create a residential development that was economically sound and environmentally friendly. How could we protect the land and natural resources and create a neighborhood of lasting value?
The answer to that question was found in a leading edge planning approach for subdivisions known as conservation design - blending the science of the soils, slopes and vegetation with the artistic skills of a master designer. We subsequently retained the services of Randall Arendt, one of the nation's foremost practitioners of conservation design for subdivisions.
Mr. Arendt's design preserves approximately one-third of the total property in permanent open space. And every home site has been carefully planned to take full advantage of the surrounding forests and meadows. The result is a land-use plan that is truly unique among the Triangle's luxury neighborhoods.
