    Downsized from out of state 3 years ago and we just love it here. Homes are beautiful and floor plans are even better. Having great neighbors and community clubs and activities made the transition easy. Within walking distance to two grocery stores, country store, medical facilities and a couple restaurants. Not far from two hospitals and medical specialist you need. The area just has everything you need without the traffic. The community also backs to Rapho Park with walking trails. We love it here.

    We purchased a resale home here this summer and are overall pleased with it and the community. We've put a little more time and money into the house than we wanted (chaining the flooring and painting) but other than that the house is nice. The people here are really friendly and we're enjoying getting to know our new neighbors.
