Hawthorne is a great community. I have lived here for over two years in a single family home. While new developments may have the disadvantage of selling your home in a couple years due to competing with the developer, Hawthorne should be finished out in that time period, so I would not see that as a problem. If you'd like more information - as to the social life here, or HOA fees, etc., please feel free to contact me directly. I'd be happy to discuss it with you. As I said, it's my home and I do know it well!
