NOTES FROM THE SELLER
“We love our yard and the privacy of the greenbelt behind our home. The views of the forest and wildlife (birds, rabbits and squirrels) are always relaxing. We are also going to miss the quiet street, our kids riding their bikes in the cul-de-sac, and our neighbors. The yard is professionally landscaped and has different flowers blooming all year and there are blueberry bushes, blackberry bushes and an apple tree. Don’t miss the Neighborhood Fourth of July celebration.
We’ve enjoyed this location because we have easy access to everything in town, but we have a great deal of safety and privacy. We also love the light we get from being on the hill and having a Southern exposure, especially in the Winter. We also love the landscaped entry and views of the golf course and valley every time we are coming or going.
When dining out nearby, we love going to Uptown with the kids. Fondi Pizzeria is one of our favorites, any of their pizzas are good! We also really like Lele Thai, their beef bulgogi is delicious. Occasionally we will head across the bridge for something different and we like to check out Cooks Tavern.”
