    Brandermill Reviews

    Brandermill is a beautiful, nature-inspired planned urban development (PUD) integrated into the forest with a 1,700 acre water reservoir, which is for residents only. The community association only allows electric engines on boats so the reservoir stays quiet and clean. There are paved paths throughout the entire PUD, so there are plenty of dog walkers, joggers, etc. The schools are wonderful. There is plenty of shopping nearby, but Brandermill is residential only, which maintains the safe, quiet, natural setting.
    Review Brandermill
    Lots of places to run/walk (though I wish there were more walking paths spread throughout or sidewalks). It's well lit at night. Playgrounds are nice, but could be better (more equipment for different age groups). Neighbors are friendly. Overall, very nice place.
    Some areas have larger houses than others, but that is just for variety. There is an option for everyone: apartments, townhouses, single-story homes, multi-story homes, etc.
