What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Chestnut Hill

There is a large park within walking distance. We also have several food truck nights during the summer that are very well attended.

I like that it's so close to town! And it's really easy to find your way around. I grew up with this town so Ik it great for family's. It has a really sweet and welcoming people.

I have lived in the same neighborhood my entire life so I feel very comfortable being there. Also there are 2 shopping centers within a 15 minute walk from my house.

I like the fact that my neighborhood is safe. It is also walking distance from a shopping center. It has very little to no disturbance and is generally quiet.

Quiet with mature trees and still close to stores snnd grocery. Also close to my work location. Most of our family and friends live within a couple miles.

I like that we're close to downtown and can easily go out and explore. There are plenty of grocery stores nearby and we don't have to worry about traveling far.
