Hi Pat, we went to visit my brother over the holiday and we looked at some property.

Then we went to Meadowlakes.  My goal was to locate property that represents what is available that meets all of your criteria.  I found two that are over 2800 square feet with a nice golf course view and priced under 300k.

Lane knows a builder that is selling this property in a development called Packsaddle.  The development was not all that impressive but this home does have a very nice view as well as granite counter topes and cathedral ceilings.

195k  1900 sqft  rooms are small, granite counter, neighborhood not curbed, cathedral, sm back porch, fireplace great views * back view a shot of the golf course, subject property barely visible in right portion - builder claims course will soon be redesigned starting this week

Then we went to "The Legends".  Some of the marketing material refer to this as a gated community.  There was no guard as was  at Meadowlakes.
