Why We’ve Built 5+ Homes in Deer Hill Preserve
And Why to Consider Building Here Too
After 50+ years of experience working with Minnesota’s most prestigious neighborhood developments, the team at Swanson Homes knows what makes a dream home neighborhood.
For over 3 years we’ve partnered with Deer Hill Preserve because the development is uniquely located and has a wide appeal. Whether you are a family looking to build a custom home in one of the top school districts in Minnesota, or empty-nesters looking for a quiet place with serene views, Deer Hill Preserve has something exceptional to offer.
Top 5 Reasons Why We Love this Neighborhood
Unique Well-Priced Lots
The forty, multi-acre homesites with lots, starting at $350,000, offer scenic views of Baker Park Reserve, a Tamarack Bog, and a Maple-Basswood forest, amongst other natural features. These private lots also offer an opportunity for those looking to reside in a small neighborhood community brought together by shared homesite values.
Residents of the neighborhood enjoy extensive walking paths and biking trails that connect to Baker Park Reserve, which features 2,700 acres of natural beauty, a unique benefit of living in a preserved-land community.
Located in One of the Top School Districts for Minnesota
The Orono school district ranks as one of top districts every year. Competing heavily with Minnetonka, Wayzata, and Edina, this year is no different as Orono topped the 2020 charts ranking number 5 by Niche.
Dropoffs and pickups are convenient as Deer Hill Preserve is a short 2-3 minutes away from the Orono School campus, including the elementary, middle, and High school.
Meticulously Planned Landscaping Architecture and Home Design Oversight
We appreciate what Landscape Architect, Rolan Aberg, created with his concept vision for the development. The layout on the preserve is well-thought-out and creates a distinctive setting for every home.
For example, our recent model home was designed so the owners can appreciate scenic two-mile views of Baker Park Reserve from their dining room windows.
Additionally, each home plan is reviewed by one of several local and well-renowned architects prior to moving forward. This, combined with a handful of carefully chosen builders, ensures that the community will maintain the consistency of the neighborhood’s upscale aesthetic.
Preservation and Conservation of the Land
Every aspect of the Deer Hill Preserve community was developed prioritizing the conservation of the landscape. The owners planted around 4,000 trees and relocated 30 oversized oak trees, along with designing the paved roads to save as much of the natural landscape as possible. In this neighborhood, native woodlands and prairie grasslands have been restored to their natural state and are protected by conservation easement.
Secluded Yet Convenient
Deer Hill Preserve’s location allows for enjoyable living in a natural scenic landscape, yet it is still within minutes from popular shopping destinations. A quick ten-minute drive will bring you to Downtown Wayzata and a twelve-minute drive will take you to Ridgedale Shopping Center in Minnetonka. Here, there are no compromises on accessibility.
