Waterside: Off Base Neighborhood/Subdivision

Review

"Close to commuting routes/downtown/base/fresh air!"

I love the Waterside community so much, I just purchased a town home about 20 yards from the town home I'm renting! There are so many great things about this neighborhood; it's close to everything while still maintaining a 'country' feel--lots of walking paths and open areas. The development itself is laid out in an easy-to-navigate system, with several ways to get in and out of the development, and they all connect to major roads for easy commuting. You'll love the abundance of trees and plenty of free, unmarked spaces for parking. The homes and town homes were built by a very well-respected builder, back when quality craftsmanship mattered! Each home has a deck and a back yard, many have fenced back yards. The amount of crime in the area is one of the county's lowest, and diligent patrolling by off-duty officers and a great neighborhood friendliness keeps the bad guys out of our development. The HOA does an excellent job of maintaining the common areas. You'll love Waterside!

Pros Cons
  1. Great layout and easy access
  2. Homes are sturdy and well-built

  4. Safe and convenient to everything!
