Distinctive Assets That Create a Unique Community

The Coves was developed with a “conservation first” mindset. Keeping in that tradition, our amenities were, and continue to be, created in efforts to embrace the natural beauty of the region while offering residents modern, high-tech conveniences. Careful consideration has been given in creating a thriving community that embraces both the old and the new. This includes celebrating diversity, providing attractions for all age groups, incorporating high-speed mesh wifi throughout the development, installing state-of-the-art wastewater treatment, and solar power.
