My first apartment was on Sandalwood, that was almost 2 decades ago:) This area is right across from the FWB High School and I believe there is a brand new shopping/office plaza going in next door. Are you single or have a family? Maybe we could help make suggestions based on what your needs are... Welcome to the area!
Sandlewood Drive is in a older section of FWB. It is just north of Hollywood BLVD which gets a gets a great deal of traffic. I have lived in this area since my retirement from the USAF in 1995. The reason i have stayed here is the safety I feel in all areas of the city. Keep in touch and I can give you advice about all the areas.
