Local Reviews

Houses are affordable. Great location to businesses like groceries and retail. Good schools are in the area.

We live near a Publix and a Chick Fila.We have a nice park nearby for everyone.We have a few neighbors who look out for each other.We were one of the first families in our neighborhood,.

The subdivision is by the woods, so there's a lot of opportunities to see birds and other creatures, but not to the extent that deer jump out in front of cars. It's also very easy to have a pet in this neighborhood because most people have big yards. In addition, the houses don't all look the same like they do in many newer neighborhoods.

Proximity to the interstate is key. All schools in the area are top notch. Our neighborhood is known as family-friendly.

The neighbors are friendly. It has a neighborhood pool which is well maintained. We have sidewalks. Lots of families of different ages.

its a quiet place, with a lot of trees and places to walk around, we love to go downtown theres a lot of good restaurante
