It’s time to reconnect
with what’s important

With nature and art and each other. To find common ground again – on welcoming front porches, around a glowing firepit, along winding trails, beneath shady trees and beside a glistening lake – where for a moment of togetherness the world stands still and the universe stretches out before you. And it starts right here. Right now. At Painted Tree.

The things we find valuable: Mature trees and the shade they bring. An old creek, a corridor for wildlife and childhood discovery. A lake, for sunsets and fishing. At Painted Tree, wetlands, woodlands and prairie are an important part of who we are – our quality of life – and we intend to keep it that way.

Stylized Top Border
Painted Tree’s groundbreaking was perhaps the greatest of all time.
“We’re preserving and restoring as much of the natural landscape as we can for our residents and future generations to enjoy. We’re creating a community linked by trails, to make getting around on two wheels as easy as four. And where your daily commute might be a short walk from the kitchen to the front porch.”

Lay of the land


Painted Tree is thoughtfully designed to bring this unique and beautiful place to life. Three distinct districts – Lakeside, Village and Woodland – enhance and connect to the best things about the land. A variety of homes by talented and trusted builders will deepen the connections, bringing people closer to nature and to each other.

Woods & Water


Painted Tree is a daily invitation to get out of your home and into the great outdoors. Follow your feet across a network of trails, through mature woodlands, over rolling prairie and by the water’s edge. When you’re ready to get back to civilization, there are plenty of ways to do that as well as it can be done. At community events, and in oasis-like pools and facilities that turn your weekend into a two-day vacation.
