While there are several subdivisions near where The Sanctuary will be located, this development will fill an underserved niche—namely, higher-end custom homes on large lots. There will be over 700 acres around the development that will remain undeveloped and will create a true Sanctuary for the local communities, natural habitat and wildlife. The Sanctuary is being developed on part of a larger 800-acre tract that was purchased from the Hummel-Rolston-Cadwallader family, which has owned the property since the early 1900s. The land is commonly known as the Larimore tract because the Larimore family owned it in the late 1800’s.
