• Clustering the developed part of the community creates a real "neighborhood" feel and community interaction.

  • Protecting the adjacent land by placing it into a conservation easement protects it from future redevelopment.

  • Statistics show that this has led to a rise in home appreciation rates which, in this market, is a huge incentive for someone looking to invest in long-term ​real estate.

  • The local community and government benefit because a conservation community causes less storm water runoff.

  • A conservation community naturally preserves the land while creating a wildlife habitat and refuge.


We're Living In Harmony With Nature.

With so many issues today that concern the environment--global warming, greenhouse gas emissions, the erosion of the land from clear-cutting, etc., Equinox Investments, LLC could not have picked a more timely way to contribute to the environment…in its own way.

At Villages of Piedmont at Leopold's Preserve, Developer Scott C. Plein decided to move away from the pre-approved commercial, retail, and large lot residential uses for the land and pursue a conservation community. It's a decision that he will never regret.

According to the Urban Land Institute (ULI), a "conservation community" is designed for those home buyers that are interested in “communing with nature.”  Now, don’t let that worry you; this is not a “tree-hugging community,” however, the future development of Villages of Piedmont at Leopold's Preserve is designed to work around its natural environment, not structure a residential community into an existing greenscape plan. Our community is designed to work with the organic flow of the land which means more green space, natural water features, and a few man-made amenities that complement the natural environment.

So, if you’re “into nature,” enjoy living in a close-knit community where you can really get to know your neighbors, and enjoy seeing some of nature’s furry friends as you drive through the community, Villages of Piedmont at Leopold's Preserve is your destination for buying a home.
