Literally, a unique business model from the ground up… Starting with a ‘high-amenity trophy property’ ideally suited, centrally located and substantially developed. Arguably, in the fastest growing region in North America encompassing the targeted demographic.

Not only securing an essential resource and risk mitigator, but lending itself to future resort class master planned community development. With a surveyed, private, deeded, and adjudicated 500± acre deep-water reservoir within its Northwestern boundary and over 10 miles of ‘live-water’ river frontage delineating its Southern and Eastern borders, the property is genuinely unique.

The property location feeds into the fastest growing major metropolitan statistical area in the North America. A historically unprecedented net in-migration trend going into its 18th. year, creating an historically unprecedented forward growth momentum, one of the historically unique aspects of this population relocation trend is the demographics (i.e. high-income earners, above average advanced degreed/professionally credentialed, high net worth, etc.).
