Land Description

The Pines Reserve will be one of those how did you find this places that guests will ask their hosts when visiting one of the owners. This is because the Pines Reserve is a rare opportunity to own a small piece of a very large, very unique ecosystem. It is a quint essential example of the old adage referring to land - they aren't making any more of it. And in this case the Really aren't. But situated right in the heart of the Sandhills and between two very interesting commitments to land usage and stewardship, it is a secluded slice of native paradise being made available. It is a development of a limited number of high quality lots that each overlooking or near a pristine and dramatic canyon cut by one of the finest blue ribbon trout streams in America. Surprisingly, it is in the state of Nebraska, neither known for trout, nor canyons. The more common discussion of the cornhusker state if not college football is the time someone travelled through Nebraska's long and relatively straight Platte River Valley on their way to Colorado to ski, and said, it was so flat. If you are a Nebraskan, you've heard that all your life. But also if you are a Nebraskan, there are many reasons you have never left, or returned once you had. Because the apparently secretive beauty, which is actually so bountiful in the state, along with the incredible hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activity is so good, you probably haven't matched it anywhere else. And now with more than one destination golf courses considered to be top ranked in the country depending on which golf magazine you read, the state that is more known for beef and big beef-eating football players, is without question one of the best quality-of-life places found in these great United States. True. Therefore, when you realize that to own part of this paradise in a rural setting, it often takes a large financial, if not a life, commitment that would result in including many acres all at an ever-rising price, it separates only certain individuals who might take it on. But to look at a piece of heaven that currently can be acquired only because one individual decided to part with in small chunks, the group of people ready to make a claim is a much larger set. Plus the small portions are set amongst some of the finest land located anywhere, and will remain protected by a set of agreements between any parties involved and by the vary nature of all the land surrounding them it really renews one's faith in the idea that every now and then, one can get lucky. Where God's Country for sure. These lots were part of a bigger holding owned by a man who has made his way in life by possessing vision as well as faith. His entrepreneurial spirit has fulfilled several dreams all impressive. One of which was to build a destination golf course of the finest caliber. And another was to own some fly-fishing water. So after piecing together a good stretch of the Snake River in the upper Sandhills of Cherry County Nebraska, a task that took years to accomplish, he decided to dedicate a good portion of his land above the river's canyon to create The Prairie Club. And he could do it, while also protecting the pristine trout stream, celebrating the natural beauty that is paramount to the area in both equations. This golf course located directly south of the town of Valentine, Nebraska and is now rated, as one the top in the country. And to visit it is to understand why. The outdoor quality, unique landscape, and feeling of peace that is gathered in a stint at the Sandhills is something few other places can offer let alone while participating in a favorite sport. Six years into the course's success, the owner decided to develop homesites at the south edge of the Prairie Club. The seventh and final lot of the first batch sold two years ago. But now, three more have been platted and are available. They will surely sell to those who also share an appreciation for the last pristine portions of the great places on earth places to build a true get away in one of the best. Neighbors Located directly to the south of these lots, as well as below in the canyon to their west, is another exhibit of high-quality land usage and conservation commitment. It is owned by the Snake River Preservation Group. This group of dedicated sportsmen and outdoorsmen is a long-running fishing club that has protected miles of the Snake's outstanding fishery. Their interest, as it sounds, is to keep it preserved, natural, and full of fish and other wildlife. Between the developer's commitment to the land integrity, The Prairie Club who will maintain a golf course based specifically on native and natural beauty, and The Snake River Preservation Group's protection, anyone buying a lot at Pines Reserve will know exactly what they are getting as neighbors and they simply are not any bad ones. Not even OK for that matter they are in fact great ones. This means an owner of Pines Reserve should sleep well knowing the assurance and longevity of the same views and ecosystem that were the vary attraction that instigated the purchase in the first place. Protection To insure the integrity of this development, a thought-out set of covenants have been constructed that will run with the property of each and every lot. They are the rules and regulation of the Pines Reserve and are those statements of all the things one can't do, that will not be a list of limitation but rather one of what an owner can count on. They will be in fact only be seen as positives to those who will share the like-mindedness to purchase a piece of this tiny development. They will protect and nurture one's stake in their personal slice of one of the most picturesque areas of the Central Prairie. Character & Protection Made up of only 7 lots initially and now these 3, the Pines Reserve will always remain a very small development. They are made up of the rim itself running north and south and as the name suggests, a beautiful stand of ponderosa pines, the main tree of the area. Naturally and beautifully they line the rim and fill the canyon itself and the occasional forest feeling on the top. A common driveway runs through this wooded area running north and south to access each lot. Regarding improvements, taste is a part of the Pines Reserve. Subjective, but to get a feel for what can be expected and allowed to be built, one just has to look at the Prairie Club. Because the Pines Reserve is protected by a set of covenants to insure quality of the area and it's visionary will approve all building plans to assure that quality is always a part of the development. This isn't a place to have loud energetic summer activity such as a lake full of jet skies, Sea-doos, speedboats, ATVs, dirt bikes, and the things that go along with such. Nothing wrong with that, but it just won't be at the Pines Reserve itself. However, for those who love the energy of such activity, the Pines Reserve can function as the home base, with other nearby areas supplying the action. Rather the Pines Reserve is a place of feeling the wild value and the peace of a place with a view and a close-up encounter with Mother Nature a real getaway cabin/home that offers a peaceful place to have as a base for all kinds of activities in the surrounding area. They will continue the quality demonstrated by the Prairie Club and remain a harmonious marriage of human and Nature's balance. Access Access to the development comes from Highway 97 to the east, and crosses through private land. The drive is its own little transition into solitude as it delivers every traveler to the retreat from concrete and the sound of things other than the wild. Conclusion To describe them any further is to not do justice. Please set up a showing to get the feel th
