Seven tall mighty oaks are sheer perfection, naturally peaceful shady enclosure for an inviting yard.
A totally unique Dream Home site within the Parkview Estates is the 7 Oaks.
Its name comes from the rare stand of seven oaks, each estimated to be a century or more in age. An extension of the old growth Big Woods running along Parkview Drive.
By car, enter the long sinuous driveway from 2700 Parkview Drive. In a mere minute, you will be unbelievably immersed into another world--the enchanting world of nature. Turn onto the paved serpentine driveway winding through your own picturesque woodlands to the left (west). The destination ahead spans your several hundred feet of School lakeshore and recreated prairie--reminiscent of the "Oak Savanna Landscape" of old, now treasured. And to the south towers your impressive grove of seven mighty old growth oaks. Extremely tall, visually powerful and a most rare treasure.
What is most unique is that either the broad lakeshore-prairie side of the site or the grove of seven mighty oaks could be a Dream Home's front yard-or possibly two front yards.
Certainly, patios or sitting areas are called for on each side to enjoy the natural beauty-in private two entirely different ways, Rare, indeed. This wide ready-to-build lot, extremely quiet and private, is totally protected by conservation woodlands, prairieland and natural wetlands owned by you and your shore land on School Lake.
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 rest of the world. Visually Silent Peaceful solitude.
The long stretch of prairie grasses and flowers meet hundreds of feet of School lake shore, blending to form a beautiful atmosphere.
Native prairie grasses and prairie flowers change throughout the season adding drama to the broad yard.
During a walk in the woods, you may occasionally run across a Wild Columbine.
Or Wild Strawberries.
This Baby Robin, the first of the hatch in the springtime, will build muscles for about two weeks then fly away into the woods to start its own family.
Migrating Wood Ducks. The Drake has striking plumage, a green crested head, chestnut breast, and other distinctive bold markings. Note the "teardrop" around the hen's eye.
