For those seeking their own “secret garden,” High Grove is a collection of eight parkside homes ideal for year-around or second- and vacation-home living. Residents of High Grove will enjoy the beauty and convenience of the best of both worlds at The Reserve – direct access to the water (via a golf cart path connecting the neighborhood directly to the village), and incredible privacy that the natural woodlands of the Blue Ridge Mountains provide.
Introduced earlier this year with prices from the lower $400,000s, the homes of High Grove have received marked interest from prospective buyers, and in a period of three months, has generated an interest list of more than one hundred families from across the country.
The first home constructed in the High Grove neighborhood will be The Wiltshire design, a bright and airy home plan with large windows along three sides of the great room, spilling natural light in to highlight the vaulted ceiling. The Wiltshire’s master suite is comparable to one found in much larger homes, with private access to the covered porch and luxurious soaking tub. Complete with a cozy upstairs reading nook, and a well-appointed kitchen, The Wiltshire features three bedrooms and three and one-half baths, plus a two-car garage, for a total of 2,550 square feet. The Wiltshire is one of four unique English Garden-inspired plans designed for the High Grove neighborhood.
“Combining simplicity with sophistication, the homes at High Grove are designed to evoke the beauty of the English countryside. The Arts and Crafts inspired architecture, influenced by British vernacular sources of the 16th and early 17th centuries, features clean lines and sweeping roofs with natural materials reminiscent of an English farmhouse. Stone and stucco on the exterior are complemented by cedar shingles on the roof, while large windows and abundant outdoor living space bring the outdoors in.”
