Local Reviews

The location is unreplicable and therefore it's hard to move. It's a little bid older but nice overall.

Near by the park and church and the school it's not that far from grocery stores and not that far from the downtown

My favorite is the cafe in the community, where the atmosphere is very good, it is perfect for sitting and chatting with friends in the afternoon tea

There are lots of restaurants in this neighborhood and it feels very safe overall. People are always outside in the parks and walking around.

Great new buildings that look sleek and modern. Jefferson Park and Sloan's Lake nearby. Nice breweries like Little Machine Beer and Hispanic restaurants.

Close to major highways and downtown but not too close. It is also not a very long drive to be in the mountains.
