Neighborhood Spotlight: Sturbridge in Montgomery, AL

September 11th, 2008 categories: Montgomery, Neighborhoods

Sturbridge EntranceIf you’re looking for a great location, Sturbridge Plantation is close to just about everything east in Montgomery.  I’m often envious of its position right in the heart of retail, restaurant, and residential development along Vaughn and Taylor roads. It’s hard to get much closer to grocery stores, pharmacies, shopping, movies, gas stations, banks, etc. and still have the privacy of this neighborhood.

Sturbridge is big, but it doesn’t feel big.  It’s new enough to offer modern amenities (pool, fitness center, playground, etc.), and old enough to have a little history (as far as east Montgomery goes) and a little foliage!

Ducks at Sturbridge PondSturbridge is divided into subdivisions, so there’s a little of everything:  the colorful Cottages near the entrance, the traditional homes in the Plantation, the large stone and stucco homes of Rockbridgse, the estate lots on Payne Road.

Sturbridge PoolBottom line: People in Sturbridge do a lot of living there.  They are zoned for two new schools: Wilson Elementary School and Carr Middle School They take swimming lessons sponsored by the YMCA at the pool.  They host holiday craft markets at the clubhouse (which are well attended).   I’ve been to a Super Bowl party at the clubhouse and I’ve met friends at the park for play dates.  I get a real sense of community when I’m in Sturbridge.
