I have been looking at this neighborhood for years waiting for it to mature and for the lots I wanted to open up. I purchased a home in the spring and moved a few months ago and I love it! The HOA takes care of landscaping so that's something I don't have to even think about. They turned my fence request around very quickly. I am able to do the landscaping and hardscaping I want in the backyard, no problem. I got all the custom features inside I wanted when I built. The area is lovely and while all the amenities are not in yet the ones I use are so I don't mind! Belmont has a lovely small town feel, which includes everything form upscale neighborhoods to some trailers, the crime rate is low and I am not a snob, so I like the diversity! Its low maintenance living and I never have to worry about a new neighbor moving in and building some monstrosity in their yard or painting their house purple and yellow!(which yes did happened to me once!) and of course the 1.5 mile of lake front is nice too ;-)
We bought a home here last year and really like the community. It's perfect for us and our two dogs love it too. The dog park is nice and all the trails are great. We enjoy being on the water and just spending time outside.
We love the area, but were mislead and lied to when we made our purchase..the amenities are not as they promised, HOA rules were not disclosed and we were told we could treat our home as ours, but the HOA has the say so on everything you do..even inside your home. The ugly trailers are still there at the entrance and we were told these were purchased by DR Horton and being removed...just don't believe the sales people..ask lots of questions, especially ask for the rules..we were not given any, we were just told by the rep and you would think they would be truthful..but they aren't. If you like the "Stepford Wives" way of living, this is the community for you!
