Default Quakertown: Academy Place, Brayton Gardens II, or Hunters Crossing?

After a long search in Bucks County, we decided that Quakertown is the best place for our family. We are looking at homes in these three neighborhoods. We have young children and want to be in a safe friendly neighborhood with alot of other families with children. Of course, we want newer construction ... but we don't want to go through the nightmare of building.

We drove through Academy Place, and the homes are nice, but traffic by the schools seems dangerous. Brayton Gardens and Hunters Crossing seem quiet. The homes in Brayton Gardens are at the south end far away from 309. Hunters Crossing backs up to that Goodwill shopping center so there is a small concern.

Any opinions about the 3 neighborhoods?

jzzy - glad to hear you decided on Quakertown, it really is the best place in Bucks, especially for families! Lots to do, you're gonna love it.

Acadamy Place - To be honest, I have no idea what possessed that builder to plop those homes right in front of the school like that. They seem a bit out of place. The homes are big, beautiful homes. But you don't get the seperate community feel like you do in Hunters Crossing and Brayton Gardens, which have essentially private roads. School traffic can be a mess. And taxes are much higher on these homes. Nice floorplans.

Brayton Gardens is the nicest community of the 3. The Brayton Gardens II land covers 220 acres. Mostly half acre lots and larger so homes are spaced further apart. And the builder (THP) donate fully half of the land (110 acres) to the open space program meaning lots of nature trails, open spaces, fenced ponds. Kids everywhere! Big community of 200 homes and has entrances from Tollgate Rd, Trumbauersville Rd, and from a road that runs out to the light by the Giant so very convenient. Private. All homes are over 2000 sq ft. THP homes are very well built and have beautiful, open floorplans.

Hunters Crossing - a nice neighborhood, homes are generally smaller than the other 2 developments. About 60 homes. Much smaller lots, most are about a quarter acre, homes feel cramped together in places, some have almost no backyard. I'm not a fan of Americorp construction but it's just a preference in quality and floorplan design. Only 1 entrance to development on Mill Road - can be times where that is inconvenient. Part backs up to the Goodwill shopping center - I never heard of any problems but that would always be in the back of my mind. Pretty streets and homes.

Hunters Crossing is great only one way to get in and out of the community. The shopping center is not a concern at all. Especially if you have a lot in the back so much privacy and a very friendly place! Great walking trails
