Two excellent homebuilders – Essex Homes and M/I Homes – are crafting The Conservancy, McLean’s neighborhood beside Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and the trails of the Seven Oaks Preserve.

The Conservancy offers lower maintenance, single-family homes, complemented by a rich array of amenities ranging from a pool and clubhouse complete with a fitness center and covered porch to bocce courts, an event lawn, fishing pond and a dog park.

Residents enjoy direct access to the lake and daily strolls along captivating lakefront trails in the Seven Oaks Nature Preserve beside Lake Wylie.

Essex Homes is building cottage-style homes tailored to homebuyers seeking distinctive designs and lower maintenance. All Essex homes in The Conservancy are one-story designs with optional additional living space available on the second floor. This means that any home can be built as a three-bedroom/two-bath ranch home if desired, or with additional rooms on the second floor. Prices for Essex Homes range from the mid-$240s to the mid-$300s.

M/I Homes offers a variety of ranch homes designs in The Conservancy, including many that can include a bonus room or upstairs living room. A few basement plans will also be offered.
