The most diverse lot within the Parkview Estates welcomes one with its mature green lawn with weeping forms of trees, an orchard of a hundred or so apple trees, a sloping terrace and a private woods for shady walks.
As you walk the beautifully landscaped lawn under the weeping juniper arches to the Apple Orchard, the yard is filled with the most fascinating weeping forms of trees such as weeping Colorado Spruce, weeping White Pine, Weeping Uncle Fogey Pine, weeping Johnson's Birch and weeping Crab Louisa which make it as stunning when flocked with winter snow as it is on a sunny summer day.
Stand in the Orchard's center for the impressively long view across School Lake. Honeycrisp Honeygold and SweeTango trees can provide a colorful backdrop for a Dream Home.
But continue down to the gently sloping terrace for additional stunning views across School Lake--another choice site for a Dream Home.
And to the right, the south portion of the yard contains a naturally wooded private nature-walk under mature maple and oaks trees, enclosed by your own natural conservation woodlands. Plus down your hill lies your 200 feet of School lakeshore.
All this contributes to the sounds of silence. The wind gently rustling leaves. Mild waves lapping on the shore. Songs from the birds. An oasis away from the congestion, noise pollution and din of the outside world. Peaceful solitude.
Pick a juniper berry, crush it between your thumb and finger and inhale the resinous, piney, sweet, citrusy aroma--the essential flavoring element in gin.
A bit of winter drama with the fresh winter snow amplifying the shapes and textures of the evergreens.
