Two decades ago a prominent Medina resident (who later became Mayor) explained what a gem Medina is. He said that while the surrounding cities were building densely and crowding in, the south west "rural residential" portion of Medina would be an oasis of exclusive well-spaced residences. Still true today
Consider that the Parkview Estate's conservation Sanctuary is buffered on the west by the 2,700 acre Baker Park Reserve which will never be built upon. On the north by private School Lake with its exclusive homes. The same holds generally true on the east and south sides. As such, Parkview Estates is an oasis within an oasis.
To ensure our spaciousness and privacy for the future, we have placed 70 of the 90 acre Estate under a permanent conservation easement creating a Sanctuary within Nature. The easement legally guarantees that only six homes can ever occupy this entire 90 acre estate.
Building sites for these Dream Homes will always be protected by conservation land individually owned by the occupants and can never be built upon.
Spacious, private and quiet.
Importantly, we live on only one planet and we can help conserve it for future generations. As Thoreau said, "Wilderness is the preservation of the world." Creating a Sanctuary over so many acres--each privately owned-is one way to do our part. This means the terrain and natural resources such will remain untouched as a refuge for our dreams, well away from the din of congested outside areas.
Living within, one can experience the effects of a deeper understanding and appreciation of the environment and a more personal relationship with the spiritual aspects of Nature. Your home within Parkview Estates is more than land and a house, it will be a lifestyle that will be yours alone on the personal estate land you own.
"Nothing happens unless we first dream". Carl Sandburg
