Wonderful peaceful feeling!
A place I love to come home too. People are friendly but not in a nosey way. Great biking roads and many ponds/lakes, easy access to interstate and rarely heavy traffic. The landscaping around the homes is gorgeous. I just wish we had a town square with some great restaurants and sidewalks on both sides of street in residential neighborhoods. Also check out the drainage in your yard before you buy a home. The developements have poor plans for water drainage.
I do enjoy low taxes because we have no schools. I hope to keep it that way.

We have been living in Piperton since 2017 Summer. Piperton is a lovely suburb of Memphis that can fill you with countryside style of living. Easy access to highways and it takes 35 to 40 minutes to downtown Memphis on weekdays commute. Geographically Piperton is the outer side of I269 bracing with Collierville. Just 3 miles to Collierville shopping but a huge advantage in saving tax as Piperton is in Fayette county. Piperton is fast growing and neighborhoods friendliness and safety are second to none. We love our living in Piperton so far!
Its a quite safe community but is kind of boring and doesn't have a school. It would be great if this area had some public schools but sadly it doesnt. There is lots of opportunity to have a family out here but you'd have to send your kids to a private school. If your lucky enough, try enrolling your kid into the White station optional program.
