This cuts down on the amount of traffic going through the neighborhood making it more pleasant for walking the sidewalks and less noisy.

There are a lot of dense mature trees in the area. This is great because it gives the neighborhood the feeling of being among nature.
The neighborhood also has a playground at the bottom of a large grassy hill, a great spot for sledding. There is also a pond and stream to walk by, often with some wildlife around.
• Active HOA
The homeowner’s association is small, and fees are low, but they do a great job of organizing activities for the residents.
These include halloween parades, ice cream socials, movie nights, food trucks and more. This provides a chance to make new friends and catch up with neighbors.
