The Preserve is a 700-acre mountain sanctuary that provides upscale remote living and modern amenities. The homes are nestled within a lush deciduous and evergreen Appalachian forest which presents magnificent views of its neighbor, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The Great Smoky Mountains are known for their vast diversity of plant and animal life and boast far more species, both common and rare, than any other national park. The surroundings of the development greatly enhance the owner’s investment. See for yourself why we believe this is East Tennessee’s most spectacular upscale mountain community.
With breathtaking views of the entire Smoky Mountain range, the Preserve is indeed your own peaceful retreat – your mountain home – yet you’ll be close to neighbors when you feel like coffee on the porch. English Mountain is easily seen from the Smokies and the developers want the mountain to be an aesthetically positive view… not another scar on the landscape. They have taken the least invasive approach to every aspect of the development.
Roads have been carefully designed to be hidden. As few trees as possible have been taken down, and the trees that were felled were used to create buffers to control water and soil runoff. Plans are in place to reforest the borders of the roads with indigenous plants and trees once construction is finished.
The roads follow the contour of the land and are built at subdivision grade. When rock impacted the width of the road, the roadbed was built up instead of blasted, a far more expensive solution resulting in less scarring. This attention to detail has guided the entire design and development of the Preserve.
The houses follow height, size, material and color restrictions. The Building restrictions encourage good design which immerse the structures into the natural environment. Lots are arranged to encourage community and assure privacy.
