Not to mention it’s like living in the mountains while being right next to town. If you are going to check one of these neighborhoods out, though, make sure it is the Eyrie Canyon Subdivision.

The existing homes, however, have an approximate average of 3,000 square feet and have either 3 or 4 and sometimes 5 bedrooms. These homes will also usually have 2½ baths.
