We enjoy our townhome here. We both still work part-time so it's nice to have a low-maintenance home. I wish we had more time to enjoy the clubhouse but soon we will! I do use the fitness center and the tennis courts but I want to try my hand at some crafts one of these days. It's nice to know when I'm ready, and have time, the options are available to do more.
