Excellent schools. Very friendly and diverse neighborhood. Safe and quiet. Close to major highway access and shopping malls. Perpetuity values hold very well even during market down times.

The majority of the people in this neighborhood are very fit and love to exercise. If you're going on a walk, you can't avoid hills!
If you live here long enough, you'll get used to it. The weather is slightly unpredictable. For instance, it may rain and then stop and then continue again. It gets fairly wet here and stays fairly cool all year round.
