Each bungalow is unique, but all feature hardwood floors, updated kitchens and baths, new electrical, plumbing, HVAC, windows and roofs. Some units feature front porches and trellises. Privately gated, this hidden community has lush landscaping, winding walkways, a water feature, communal fire pit, conversation areas and laundry rooms.
