Local Reviews

The proximity to neighborhood parks is highly desirable, in addition to being within walking distance to local shops and restaurants. The close proximity to the best hospitals in the area is also a wonderful thing.

The things I like most about living in my neighborhood is that is quiet. Near the main road is where we can find businesses of any kind, including a supermarket, so if you need anything, its nearby.

The housing is mainly Victorian and property is well maintained. It is possible to walk to restaurants in five minutes. We frequent family restaurants.

It's extremely walkable. There are weeks that I never have to get in my car. There's a great park nearby. Some of my favorite restaurants are up the street from my house.

It is a very safe neighborhood. There is a local Thai restaurant, Thai Thai kitchen, that we like a lot.
