All houses are very high standard and the outsides look very clean and well maintained. It's a little more expensive to buy a house in this area because of the safeness and the nice location.

I think people tend to live here longer than in average neighborhoods because it's very family and pet friendly and it's a very great location.
Because it's a safe family friendly neighborhood.
