The “Homestead,” recreation village is located on the site’s most prominent hilltop, preserved as the “heart” for the 600-acre Tallyn’s Reach community. Designed as the village meeting place, the “Ranch House” establishes an immediate connection with the site’s farming heritage. This multi-use building offers spacious covered porches and an outdoor fireplace for year-round community gatherings. The original windmill and stone grinding mill are woven into the landscape setting. A new pool house, picnic pavilion, and observation tower expand the historic agrarian vernacular of the village.
