Deer Moss Creek Vision & Mission

Deer Moss Creek has been designed to give its residents an opportunity to explore the natural surroundings. Whether on the trails or in your own backyard, Deer Moss Creek will present many opportunities for discovery and adventure.


To create places of character filled with homes and businesses people love within nature’s blueprint.

Mission Statement:

We partner with experts to weave neighborhoods into nature for people who want a new home or to grow a business in a beautiful place.

Deer Moss Creek is an intricate balance of nature and people. The Deer Moss Creek experience blends the human element into the natural areas and brings nature into where people live.

Created on 1,087 acres of multi-storied forest, a canvas celebrating nature’s artistic handiwork, Deer Moss Creek embraces the land with its streams and tributaries. The creek along with the forest, hills and open spaces creates a dynamic landscape in which to build community.

Encouraging a healthy lifestyle, a paved trail system will follow the creek, and footpaths meander off towards spring-fed streams. A bike path will loop around the property. Parks and neighborhood amenities add a depth of character to everyday living as does the diverse styles of homes.

At the heart of Deer Moss Creek will be a vibrant village center. Pedestrian and vehicular bridges will connect neighborhoods to each other and the designated commercial and light industrial areas where potential retailers and businesses can thrive.

For decades the Ruckel family used this pristine land for studying and enjoying nature, horseback riding, hunting, etc. The hope is that others may now enjoy living together in this master planned community that respects the bounties of nature and is inspired by craftsmanship and excellence.

Creating a destination where people can build their dream home, work, shop, be entertained, and immerse themselves in nature is what Deer Moss Creek is all about.
