We are regularly asked about the term “NAOS” popping up in various real estate listings. NAOS stands for Natural Area Open Space. It is protected areas that must remain as natural desert. No structures of any type be built on NAOS. Having a home that backs to NAOS is a huge selling feature. It ensures that you have both privacy and views.
