Lot Selection: Where Your Journey Begins

For this reason we offer a variety of lots as unique as their owners. The stunning lots in our newest enclave, Conifer, vary in size from almost 7,000 square feet to well over 14,000 square feet. Beyond the beautiful landscaping and water features you’ve come to expect from Hearthside Grove, many of our newest offerings in Conifer are framed by a natural stream, rolling embankments and a beautifully wooded backdrop.
