    I wanted a small community within the Chesapeake area to stay close to my family and friends. My condo here is nice. I like that if I really want to get involved with a group it is there for me but overall, I'm more of a private person and just like doing my own thing. I don't feel pressured here to be a social butterfly. It's a nice neighborhood, the clubhouse suits my needs and the location is ideal for me.
