All over the country, a growing number of luxury communities are being built around nature preserves. In states like Texas, Georgia, South Carolina and California, luxury homes near nature preserves are quite common.


Nature preserves are home to varieties of endangered American songbirds, fish and more. At homes near nature preserves, rare birds and animals are frequent backyard visitors.
