Our uniqueness derives from being in a community setting. Mostly corporate businesses, unfortunately!

Neighbors are friendly, houses are well maintained. I am comfortable having friends and family over.

The jacka is a little more expensive but I think it was a great experience in a row you can get a the rest of your

No crime in our area. Close to schools. Great walking area. Lots of families . Everyone watches out for each other.

I would say I love taking my dog to the park and around our neighborhoods and taking him to play with his dog friends and stuff

I love all of the nearby restaurants and shopping available. It is great going out to eat a meal with friends.
