They take their name from the Andover Golf Club, which was named after the streets and houses began building. The situation is similar to the development that Ball is doing around Hays Blvd. There are several of around town and it makes it quite confusing.

Andover takes the cake for confusion. There is Andover Forest, Creek, Village, Hill, Lakes 1, Lakes 2, Estates, Club, Park, Green, Meadow. Everybody just calls the Country Club side of Todds Road "Andover Hills". I have a listing in Andover Park, but I put it under Andover Hills since nobody really knows the difference.

Micahgirl - Those garden homes would be a great place for in laws. The area, as I'm sure you've seen is a bit of a mixed bag. There's some rental property in there along with young first time owners. However, there's also some very well kept and charming homes of some retirees.

Thanks so much for all the input. By the time I'm done I'm going to know more about this area than any of my friends or neighbors.

Thanks for the information on the stucco. That actually was a house we were thinking about!

You've been more than helpful.

When you do find a house, I am sure you will have it inspected. I used Pruitt Property inspection for my own house. They have done probably 10 or so inspections for my buyers. They have 3 or 4 inspectors, but I think Steve or Larry are the best. (Larry did my house!)

Thanks for the tip. We have also looked at properties that we would possibly want to add on to. Do you have any suggestions for contractors who might be able to give us estimates on how much an addition would cost if we were going to make an offer on a smaller home with a large lot?

You can PM me if you like.

Thanks,
