I have friendly neighbors, I feel very safe, it's a nice neighborhood with nicely landscaped properties.

We have several friendly, trustworthy residents in the neighborhood. The neighborhood is only about 5-10 minutes driving distance to downtown. We enjoy going to Elmo's Diner from time to time. We also really love going hiking at the Eno River and are not too far from there.

It is quiet and near my school. The school bus stops right outside which makes it convenient. House is well maintained and well kept.
