The address is on San Miguel, but the 16 condos in this friendly, low turnover HOA community sit back off the street on a private drive. This gives the complex a central location, while still feeling sheltered from the hubbub of everyday life.
The attached dedicated garage with interior access makes bringing home the groceries an easy task, plus there is an additional deeded parking space on site.
