Top 20: #3: YARD and LOT 15!

Growing up I did not have a backyard and our townhouse had a very small yard, which was mostly pavers. Now we have a BEAUTIFUL backyard and a huge side yard that ends at the tree line.We weren't expecting such a huge side yard! The kids enjoy the swing set and all the room they have to run. Luckily we are good friends with the neighbors whose yards are near us, so all the kids in our little section play together in the combined yards. It is so beautiful and peaceful out there, I could stay outside for hours. It is so nice to just let our kids go out and run around and not have to worry about them running into a street.

Out lot is tucked back off the street. It is like having your own little private driveway and cul de sac. We share the driveway down to the houses with the neighbors across the street and it then turns into our driveway with a little turn around at the end. I will have to take a picture of it tomorrow morning to better explain it! It is great because the kids can walk out the door and we don't ever have to worry about cars since it is just us and our across the street neighbors! It also makes it super peaceful and private. There are only 2 shared driveway areas like this, 4 houses total that get these lots. They are also significantly bigger than the others. With the trees and the view of the (water retention) pond, it is PERFECT! The best part is we got all this with no lot premium! Couldn't be more pleased with the lot we chose!

Here's the plan when we bought our lot. You can kind of see the set up. Lots 10, 11, 15, and 16 are
all shared driveways. We don't face the street, we are turned to the side (our house faces lot 16's house face).
