Industry Expert Review

The size of the amenity and clubhouse is really terrific in this community and what you would normally see at a neighborhood of 750 homes or more. The addition of a Indoor Pool for residents in the Northeast is also great added value and gets plenty of use in the winter months. Having been developed in early 2000's the community now is surrounded by mature trees and residents will appreciate the sidewalks on both sides of the street.
