Walk the length of two football fields over the beautifully mature landscaped lawn to the forever view across School Lake. A picturesque landscape of Medora Junipers, Colorado Blue Spruce and Tolleson's Blue Weeping Junipers with their blue-green tones accented with the red of maples and maroon of smokebush Brilliant on a sunny summer day and stunning when flocked with winter snow.
Stroll under the four weeping Juniper arches, crush a juniper berry between your thumb and finger and smell the resinous, piney aromas with hints of citrus. Like in.
Ivory Silk Japanese Lilac trees which line the driveway open their creamy white blooms in early summer. In the center of the driveway is your hundred-foot circle ready to landscape with your personalized welcoming scene of shrubs, ornamental grasses and garden art. Proceed further to your portion of the sumptuous apple orchard laden with Honeycrisp, Honeygold and SweetTango trees.
Of all the Parkview Estate's home sites, this is the prime spot for a Dream Home with the most impressive direct lake view. The long view is perfectly nature-framed with more evergreens on the left, the most splendid weeping willows on the right, and a scenic slope to School Lake. Down your hill your lot continues to 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 noise pollution, congestion and din of the outside world. Peaceful solitude.
