searched the world over and finally found true love. It’s called Homestead! I did not feel that relocating too far outside of a three-mile radius from Super Walmart would be in my best interest. As a Realtor with two school-aged kids, I don’t want a long drive to the office, shopping, doctors, restaurants, or schools. Every minute counts, with my lifestyle. Perhaps you can relate? However, my family and I were feeling the itch for a little more space, not just living space but also lot space. When we found our current one-acre lot, it was the best of all worlds! Homestead. This development has a minimum of half-acre lots with ponds and deer. Homestead is just on the edge of town but perfectly situated, so I do not feel I am too far out to make multiple trips daily. It features a green belt, park, and walking trails. Every home has a headwall with lights, minimum size, and the development began building in 2018 so all houses are fairly new; with exception of the original Homestead house that remains an icon of the community, which was built in 1930.
I love that I can walk around the center ponds and know that it is exactly one mile of exercise for me and my three dogs, who now enjoy a full acre lot to run on. (However, they mostly choose to run up and down the fence with the neighbor’s dog Lizzy.) At dusk, we see deer at the park enjoying the fresh grass. This was THEIR home first, so we leave them alone. My neighbors love to walk as well. Currently, we are having a Christmas light contest, so I’m keeping all neighbors at an arm’s length while I spy and compete! We also participate in bunko groups, 4th of July parades, and many more activities. It is a lot of fun.
I managed to find my dream home 2.6 miles from Super Walmart and even closer to a Walmart market. I did have to get used to the lack of street noise while I sleep, but that was not so hard. You will LOVE it here!
