About Us
Melvin MacLeod first dreamed of a woodland community nearly 50 years ago when he and his wife Sheila, along with their business partner, purchased the property that is now Lake MacLeod. Mel and Sheila envisioned a community that took care with the natural environment, preserving the beautiful setting for generations to enjoy. Together, they built the centerpiece of this community, the picturesque 10-acre lake that sits in the heart of the valley, and lived on the hill over looking this beautiful vista.

Today, the homeowners are fulfilling the original vision, building a pristine living environment that preserves its surroundings. The LMHOA is committed to creating communities that embrace and blend with their natural environments. Like Mel and Sheila before them, they envision an enriching community where roads follow the natural contours of the earth. Large wooded lots offer privacy and unimpaired views. And the natural beauty is only enhanced by careful amenities that fulfill a dream and make Lake MacLeod a truly special place to live.

Lake MacLeod offers amenities that compliment and enhance its beautiful surroundings. Residents are immersed in this unique setting the moment they turn into the stone-walled, tree-lined entry of this 152-acre community. Stop as you cross the rustic timber bridge to take in the panoramic view past the pristine wetlands preserve and across the 10-acre lake. A nearly mile-long walking trail encircles the water and provides five fitness stations. The trail is partially ADA-compliant and serves as access to a neighborhood park, picnic areas, the boathouse, and separate fishing and swimming piers. The 1200 square foot boathouse, with its stone fireplace and waterfront views, provides a magnificent community center for Lake MacLeod residents.

More than a third of the acreage of the Lake MacLeod community is left to open space, including a 40-foot wide greenway that circles the perimeter. This commitment to open space insures that each home is adjacent to natural areas, effectively enlarging the scope and natural beauty of each lot.

Yet all of this beauty belies the high-end utilities that provide modern telecommunications conveniences for its residents. These amenities, plus the recreation, parks and open space plan of Lake MacLeod will provide a lifetime of enjoyment for every resident of this perfect lake setting.

Pine Richland School District

Pine-Richland (PR) is a public school district in northern Allegheny County serving more than 4,600 students in grades K-12.  Information about the school district is located at www.pinerichland.org.  

The district covers 21 square miles. This region of Allegheny County is characterized by suburban/semi-rural development, both residential and some commercial.  The district is framed by Route 8, a north south road running through the eastern part of the district and Route 79, which lies just west of the district boundaries. These roads create great access to this part of Allegheny County and are a major factor in the growth of the district.  Information about Pine Township is located at www.twp.pine.pa.us.

The growth of the district parallels the growth of our reputation for quality educational programs.  As we grow, PR maintains a warm and caring environment with an excellent academic reputation. The district provides a future-focused approach to planning and operations, thanks to strong leadership by the board, administrative team, teachers and non-teaching staff coupled with strong participation from teachers, students and community members.

The district is comprised of six school buildings. Lake Macleod residents attend Richland Elementary School (Grades 1-3), Eden Hall Upper Elementary School (Grades 4-6), Pine-Richland Middle School (Grades 7-8), and Pine-Richland High School (Grades 9-12).  The PR Administrative Offices are located behind the high school.
