Local Reviews

We have grocery stores, restaurants, library, and gym within walking distance. Also we are biking distance from a lake and beach.

One unique thing is how the buildings are located you can sit on your patio and have a nice view of the pool, the tree lines or whatever and not be looking into someone else's apartment. But you definitely need a car to get around. Perhaps the more hardy person could ride up and down the hill to get to the local library or the senior activity center, but for shopping, doctors, etc you definitely need a car.

Friendly up to date townhomes. Multiple restaurants near by. Great neighborhood to invite family over for get togethers

Convenient shopping nearby. Friendly neighbors. Quiet area that is kid friendly. A sense of belonging to the community.

Quiet. Good stores nearby. It's a Nice and quiet area. Everything is close but not walking distance.

Plenty of shops within 2 miles of house. Numerous parks and recreational facilities. Many restaurants within 2 miles.
