We love the Homestead. We wanted land around us, and we got our house (which needed to be gutted and lovingly put back together) and 10 acres of land for about the cost of two nice cars, so our appreciation has been significant.
However, our Walk Score is zero.
The second choice of homes would have been downtown in a very urban but neighborhood-rich area with, I'm sure, Walk scores topping the 80s. Most days I'm happy with our decision, but with the snowstorm we are in, not so much today.
