Breckenridge (located on Ray Thorington Road, right past Deer Creek) looks pretty, but what’s it really like to live there?  We wanted the scoop on this newer neighborhood in east Montgomery, AL, so we asked a homeowner.  Check out what Marla had to say below.

Question:  Why did you choose Breckenridge when you were looking to buy a home?

Answer:    We chose Breckenridge because we wanted to be a little further out of the city but still have all the city perks (ex., water, garbage, fire department,).  We also liked the feel about Breckenridge!  We thought it would be nice to be a part of a newly developed neighborhood.

Question:  What perks have you found living in this neighborhood (that you may not have considered when you bought)?

Answer:  The clubhouse is wonderful!  The weight room is extremely nice, the kids (and I) LOVE the swimming pool, the tennis court is great as well.  An added bonus is the 2 ponds that are just a short walking distance from our house.  Our new puppy will LOVE them!  The middle school that is almost directly behind my house is a huge added bonus that we did not know would be ready when we moved here.  Also, the location is EXTREMELY convenient to so many things!  Most things that I need are only 8 to 9 minutes from my driveway.

Question:  What’s one piece of advice you’d give someone relocating to Montgomery

Answer:  Convenience!  With everyone’s busy lifestyle no one wants to be in the car any longer than they have to.  Look at what is available close to you.  Also, look at a neighborhood at different times of the day.  Are families outside playing, walking the dog?

Thanks so much for your help, Marla!  Not only are you a most fabulous pre-school teacher, you are also a huge help to families looking for homes in the River Region.
