We bought our home in July of 2019. The two-story house sits on a street with a number of families with small children and backs up to the neighborhood’s elementary school. We were the first buyers after the house was completely remodeled, so almost everything in the house is new or updated. We love putting our own touches into the house and landscaping to help make the house our home.
We could not be happier with our neighbors. We were surprised at how friendly and welcoming they were, even on the first day moving in. It didn’t take long to get involved with a number of neighborhood activities like brunches and dinner get-togethers. Whenever we are outside working on a project, someone is sure to stop by to chat or lend a helping hand.
We have fallen in love with the suburban town we live in. It’s not too far from Chicago, and our town has its own little downtown which is about a 20-minute walk or 5-minute bike ride from our home. Our downtown offers weekly farmers’ markets in the warm months, many restaurants to try and a handful of parks to visit. The community is friendly, charming and a great place to raise a family.
