Southern Meadow Reviews

Average Rating:
(4.5/5)
  • Rating:
    I've visited Southern Meadow on several occasions; Everyone was Friendly and welcoming. I was impressed with the amount of home for the money. Each home that I toured has spacious bedrooms, massive storage space. Both bathrooms are of ample size. I can really appreciate the 2-car garage. There is Truly a sense of Community Spirit! The only downside is the comparably high monthly H.O.A.fees;
    However, I do like the fact the there are many desired amenities at Southern Meadow.
