Your Home, Surrounded By Natural Beauty

Adhering to low impact development guidelines, Rohit Land Development has designed the community to have a natural rolling landscape that complements an array of planted trees. Beautiful paths and trails wind through a natural wetland area and along the banks of Horseshoe Creek.

This new community is a unique area to live in, where you can enjoy both the natural world on your doorstep while living only minutes away from all necessary amenities.
