    The homes in this community are gorgeous. We have friends who live here and we have been looking at resales. All the homes we've looked at have been very unique and beautifully designed. The clubhouse is fantastic as is the golf course and the restaurant. We can't wait to buy our dream home here and live closer to our good friends!
