I am just about equally attracted to both (mature landscaping, real fireplaces, traditional, larger lots, etc.) Are there any real differences in these two fine developments? Thanks in advance.

I gotta tell you; I love them both.
Find the home you like, and you will love the neighborhood.
If anything, MacGregor tends to have a "higher low end" price point.

Both nice thats right, but personally Lochmere for me. Especially the lots on the lake. A friend of mine has on for sale on that lake now that is a beautiful home and what a backyard and screened in porch.

I ditto everyone's comments. Lochmere probably has more options as far as smaller houses and larger homes, where mcgregor seems to just have the larger houses.

They are both very nice, I tended to see more people out walking (or running) every day in lochmere. Seemed to be a very active community with lots of people and dogs out and about.

Both are very nice neighborhoods as the others have stated. You can't go wrong with either. For me, I like Lochmere personally. Love the lake.

The homes in MacGregor are older, and you're now seeing homes being bulldozed to make way for bigger newer homes. I don't believe this is happening in Lochmere yet.

I have been watching some homes in MacGregor...don't mind an older home with the larger lot and mature trees. Can always update.

I have seen Lochmere homes I like also.

I have a question, which is quieter. IN regards, to train, planes, and automobiles on highways. Thanks.

About had it with all those here in Flagstaff, you can't get away from any of it. At least 110 trains a day blowing horns over two intersections is about to drive me nuts.

So much for quiet enjoyment at night.

Appreciate your responses.

Linda

Linda,

You can get away from P, T & A in either. Or you can get into a noisy area near US 1, or Kildaire Farm Road.
Like I first said, it is difficult to go wrong in either.
Find a home you love, listen for highway noise, and make it happen.
We can get a plane anywhere, but very seldom in either Lochmere or MacGregor.
Trains should not be an issue in either.

Default Pools Allowed?

Thanks Mike. Are pools allowed in either MacGregor or Lochmere?

I just love the house at Lochinvar but I plan on downsizing and going down 300 ft isn't quite downsizing. It is a lovely home though.

But man that wallpaper, what are people thinking..lol.

It's nice to here those areas are not bothered by trains or airplanes. I never knew how loud they blew the horns on the dangs things here. Every ten minutes thru the night is horrible.

But I guess the tradeoff is the appreciation this home has gained. $450,000 in 4.5 years is great. Let me do the math 59150 trains blowing their horns at two crossings,,hmm, that would come down to $3 a crossing.

Linda,
People have private pools in both communities.
And there is wallpaper in both, too.
