Industry Expert Review

When considering an older home buyers should consider that older homes will require more maintenance and will be less energy efficient when compared to today's newer homes. Covered Bridge has a very rural feel to it as it is completely surrounded by mature trees. However, its location on highway 9 puts you close to all the nearby shopping, restaurants and convenience stores. The Pine Brook Golf course wraps much of the community providing scenic views for many. The community is quite large and features a central road "Amberly Drive" which circles through the entire sub-division with individual neighborhoods connecting to it. Despite the age of the community the amenities are very well maintained and get plenty of use. Residents are pleased with the scope of amenities and things to do which include two Clubhouses, multiple exercise rooms and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities.
