What I love about the home
This house has been family-built and family maintained as though it would remain in the family. It's just plain beautiful. The many windows make the inside seem outside yet the privacy of the location make curtains unnecessary. The layout is efficient and intuitive. It is located in a neighborhood where few homes have sold because people love their homes and neighborhood. Children return to raise their children-and it's a GREAT place for kids! There are held-in-common lands, sports court, community center and miles of walking roads and trails. The olympic-sized pool is a separate membership, but open to residents. Neighborhood activities include music, kid camp, dances, potlucks, yoga, and whatever you want to start up!
