My husband and I moved to Edgemoor in June of 2018 and we absolutely love it! Our street is great with a diverse group of homeowners. It seems that the area is on the upswing with many younger families moving in and renovating the older capes and colonial homes. We are so excited about our new house and love the close proximity to the city, parks, 495, and stores. Looking forward to being here for some time.

There having been two arrest, one car crash and a huge fight. I really wish the police would respond on time and come faster.
I hate the selection of places to get food in my area. Everything is fast food and there are not many places to get fresh food of any kind. I only know of one place to buy fruit that isn't a super market, and those fruits are good, but it is a small place and it does not have a lot of options when it comes to what they sell. They do have some fruit that are extremely hard to find other places such as starfruit, so that is a plus. Other than that store, there is nothing that I have seen.
