    I really enjoy living here so far. It is a nice area and very quiet.

    4.5/5 Carolynn K. on Nov 1, 2023

    I enjoy living at Winchell Way. The location is excellent and it is particularly nice to have my building overlook the lake and preserve. The staff are always very helpful and are very pleasant in the interaction I have with them. My neighbors are quiet and respectful. I would recommend living here to anyone seeking an apartment.
