it is very quiet, there are beaurtiful views of the valley below, it is close to nature with lots of areas to hike

We like our neighborhood because it is safe and has incredible Mountain View's. Close to us is a fun town that has bars and restaurants and great shops. We have a couple favorite restaurants and haunts

Close to spas, grocery, golf. Lots of specialty medical in the area, and close to the Mayo. Our community backs onto a desert preserve it?s a unique selling feature. Best local businesses are Mastros Steakhouse

The views are amazing. Great hiking and riding trails right out the front door. Running is excellent.
