My husband and I looked at Sunset Ridge and Sunset Oaks on a recent trip. We really liked the communities and the idea of the water park for the kids. We have not been to Holly Glen but have looked at the homes online. Can anyone give us a comparison of the different subdivisions (pros & cons). Does anyone have photos of these neighborhoods? Does anyone know what the pool is like at Holly Glen?

Thanks for your help

Default all OK but....

I would really look at the community pools on a hot Sat. early afternoon, most are packed to the max so much you cant get in. all the subdiv. you mentioned are nice, not really a negative except for the density in realation to much these amenities can handle.

My question would be what is the price difference between the communites to use the pool. I know Sunset Ridge/Oaks has a hefty fee on top of their HOA to use the pool. I think most neighborhoods include pool usage in their HOA

I heard (just hearsay) that the big waterpark pool over there was closed a fair portion of the time for ummm, floaters from little kids. The mom I was talking to said it was a great pool but had to be closed down a lot for that reason. Anyone know if that is true?

Hi!

We live in Holly Glen. The HOA fee is $100 per quarter. The pool is decent size, but does get very crowded on weekends (like most neighborhood pools). No water park, just a normal pool. I've heard that the HOA is considering building an additional pool due to the increase in new construction. There is also a wooden playground, volleyball, tennis courts and a small pond. We like it here. Plus I believe homes are a little more affordable than the other neighborhoods you mentioned. Let me know if you have any more questions!

We live in Sunset Ridge. Looked at Sunset oaks. Have no idea about Holly Glen (where it even is ) I can tell you we chose SR over SO because the lots were larger, homes were larger and more custom, had more trees and has more of a rolling landscape so that everything doesn't look like it is stacked right next to each other of that makes any sense. Also because it has easier access to shopping areas and commuting routes. As far as the pools go......we only went once to the SR pool last labor day on a one way pass to try it out. My kids loved the slide. It wasn't overly crowded on that particular day. It served its purpose. We are deciding between joining the pool or putting one of our own in.

Not sure if you've considered Wescott. We have pool here at Wescott and lots of community activities are planned as well as a residents website. Our HOA is $150 per quarter. We looked at SO and SR and for whatever reason, decided on Wescott. I had never heard of Holly Glen either til I found this board. Where is it?

Yes good call that would be another neighborhood I would consider! We liked the neighborhood but they just didn't have the right house at the right time for us.

Holly Glen is located off Avent Ferry Rd., just past the new elementary school and high school. (The entrance to HG is on the right side of Avent Ferry.) I've heard Wescott mentioned before. Where is it located?
