Valley Brook Drive follows a small tributary of Sugartree Creek down to the main branch of the stream. This tributary flows through the front portion of several of the larger lots of development, providing a scenic buffer between the large homes and the roadway. The plans called for a small reservation along the creek, bordered by a bridle path. The original design also called for a roundabout, named Puryear Circle, at the western end of the development. The circle, however, was not constructed; neither was a stream crossing in this area. And rather than the larger lots typical of the bulk of the community, smaller lots and tighter streets were built.
