Local Reviews

Our neighborhood is really close to the city recreation facility. Our neighborhood is also really convenient to the interstate. We are approximately 7 minutes from the local nightlife.

my neighbors are really great we get along and watch out for each other,. its quiet and we do have our privacy, also there is not a lot of traffic ess crime here

I like going to the park and having my friends and family their with me. But the most thing I like about my good is the people in it.

I like the pool and the families there are so nice my neighboor is also nice. There's a resturant by to. .

Its a great place to live for families and young people. Lots of thing to do. Close to a college town with sports teams. Breweries and nice resturants downtown.
