What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Downingtown

while close to major highways, it seems isolated so little to no traffic other than residents. there are many restaurants and shops but not within walking distance.

It is neat and clean. The community have become friends and we have developed a good relationship. All the kids play outside and there is a lot of space.

Our neighborhood has a good mix of young couples with kids and older people. We also live where trees are mature and provide nice scenery. The school district we are in is highly-rated but our property taxes have not increased in years.

Looks good. Nice houses and good restaurants. People who love here are sweet. I love living here for 19 years now.

Our neighborhood has a lot of space. I like Buffalo Wild Wings chicken wings. I like going to the parks and water ice.

Neighbors are friendly and help each other out when needed. It is Quiet and uneventful for the most part.
