Four Villages, One Community
Willowsford is comprised of four distinct, separately located villages – The Grant, The Grange, The Grove, and The Greens. Each village has a slightly different character inspired by their natural setting, but all are interconnected within the framework of one overall community.
Farm-Focused: The Heart of the Community
A defining feature of Willowsford is its 300-acre working farm, where farm operations directly interact with the community, strengthening the connection to food and farm. In addition to food production, the farm acts as the central meeting place, where residents come together, socialize, and learn. Education is a central component of the farm’s program, instilling an awareness of where food comes from and an understanding of the importance of caring for the land. The Willowsford farm stand features fresh food harvested from the farm and products from local artisans, giving residents the chance to buy fresh produce grown on-site using sustainable practices.
Branding a Place Through Thoughtful Design Touches
Through place-appropriate design, LandDesign crafted the “story of place,” emphasizing open space in a more meaningful way by showcasing it throughout the community. Traditional four-board fencing, low natural stone walls, native plantings, and wooden signage form a common landscape vernacular, linking the community thematically through a rural yet modern aesthetic. Responding to the rural context and brand identity, the thoughtful use of classic materials and contemporary form connect Willowsford’s four villages and reinforce the community’s identity through place branding.
Crafting Lifestyle through Experiences and Amenities
While home buyers have a range of home types to choose from, what really sets this community apart are the lifestyle experiences and community amenities – all aimed at connecting residents to the land and community around them. With two main community amenity centers, Sycamore House and The Lodge at Willow Lake, Willowsford features luxurious activities and authentic experiences, providing options for everyone to enjoy the outdoors right in their backyard. Amenities are spread throughout the community and shared among residents, inviting users to experience all the community has to offer, including lake-front living, mountain views, and 40 miles of multi-use trails.
