FROM THE SELLERS
“We will miss the private, quiet evenings sitting and relaxing on the patio. The outdoor fireplace in the fall will also be missed. Also, we will miss the wonderful neighborhood.”
“I love being close to the Lakewood Towne Center. We can walk our dog up to Starbucks on Saturday mornings!”
“The yard is especially beautiful in late spring. So many things in bloom. It is stunning! Our neighborhood has a block party/bbq every summer. The association provides the burgers and hotdogs. Everyone brings a side dish. It is a great time to catch up with everyone and most families in the community participate.”
