Created with the goal of co-existing with the area’s natural landscape, The Dakota Auburn is a nature lover’s dream. Nestled among 110 acres, the community winds its way along Saugahatchee Creek and the surrounding woods.

Homes are also energy efficient, utilizing tankless water heaters and spray foam insulation, for example.
