    I am new to the neighborhood but already love it! My condo is perfect for me since I still work part time and have no interest in doing any home maintenance or yard work! I'm not even completely unpacked but I've already started to get out and meet people over at the clubhouse and have been happy to meet such nice people. I think I made a great choice to buy here.
