Heh, I grew up in Sugar Pond Manor, near St. Rita's Church and Wellington Elementary.

It's alright. A lot of houses are pretty old (by Wellington standards), like 20 to 30 years old so they aren't going to be brand new and might not have the nicest newest amenities. But you might be able to get a better deal than in some of the newer subdivisions. Also it is kind of in the middle of Wellington so you're pretty close to the grocery stores and so on and not too far from the mall, some of the outer parts of Wellington can feel more remote. There are some parts with bigger lots, like just east of Wellington Elementary, I can't remember the name of the subdivision but I can look it up. Also there are some big new McMansion type houses on Paddock that have gone up pretty recently.

I tried looking up the name of the subdivision but I can't find it and in the google maps streetview of the entrance to it the sign out front is too small to read. The main entrance is at Gold Piece Trail and Wellington Trace. Might be good to check it out if you want bigger lots and somewhat nicer homes than are in Sugar Pond Manor. I think the Greenview Shores area is even bigger homes on even bigger lots. Binks Forest is a bit to the west of that and is a golf course subdivision, it was considered pretty ritzy when I was a kid, I have no idea what it's like now.

Thanks. Older is OK as long as it's safe and schools are good. Someone had mentioned those as we are looking for a neighborhood that will allow me to have a small vegetable garden, although I don't need a huge lot. We're hoping to find a happy medium as far as HOAs go - reasonable rules to keep things neat but not ridiculously strict.

It's definitely safe and any Wellington schools are pretty good by Palm Beach County public school standards.

I was the one who told you a garden should be fine. Sugar Pond Manor (SPM) is not really a subdivision in the sense of having an HOA or a HOA charter, there are none. You have to abide by Wellington's city rules which can be a little weird but they aren't that bad. In SPM you will be able to do whatever you want with your backyard so long as stuff isn't going over your fence into your neighbors yards and annoying them. In your front yard you can definitely have fruit trees though a vegetable garden might be pushing it with the city rules. I actually asked my mom about what you can put in the front yard when I was home at Thanksgiving and she said she didn't think it would be possible to put one in due to the city rules, but you could definitely do it in the backyard. My parents' front yard is sort of messy though, a few oak trees and seagrapes and a palm tree and an orange tree, most yards in the area are a lot neater but I don't think the city cares that much as long as it doesn't look like a farm and you don't have junked cars or garbage sitting around out front!

I don't know about rules in Greenview Shores but I imagine it's the same.
