The homes in this neighborhood were primarily built in the 1980's,1990's and some newer homes have been built within the past 3 years on some of the few remaining lots. It's tucked away with low traffic through the neighborhhood. There are a variety of styles and designs, which is appealing. It remains popular with a low turnover rate. There are many beautiful mature trees, which is typical for this area & has a rolling topography. The neighborhood is conveniently located in the highly sought after town of Fairhope 'the creme de le creme' place to live, on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. There are many unique shops and restaurants, and walking and biking is a local passion for many. There are art museums, musical venues, a new state-of-the-art library, and genuinely nice people.
Recently, Fairhope-Daphne-Foley made #4 on Forbes.com's list of the nations most recession-proof places to live. This was based largely on the fact that the number of people residing here holding atleast a Master's degree was more than the national average, and the number of homeowners that own their home without a mortgage.
