"Bach - The Best of Ann Arbor"

Bach is one of my favorite neighborhoods, and arguably one of the prettiest in Ann Arbor, especially the area behind Bach Elementary School. Located just a short walk from downtown on the city’s west side, this neighborhood offers charming Victorian-style homes, complete with lovely flower gardens and sizeable yards for children to play in. While an older neighborhood, many of these 19th century homes have been lovingly restored to their original beauty. Of course, restoration does come with a price, which, therefore, has caused the rental, and purchase property values to increase exponentially. Sitting alongside these beautifully, well-restored homes are condominiums that are more modern, as well as some newer, single-family homes, adding charm to this already well-established neighborhood. In spite of this, there are some affordable rental options still available for those seeking good deal.

Shopping is made easy, as the Farmer’s Market and the Kerrytown Market and Shops are just a few steps away. With plenty of restaurants and nightlife nearby, the Bach area of Ann Arbor is able to provide everyone with plenty of entertainment and good living. Allmedinger Park is located on the southern side of Bach and houses baseball and intramural fields for sports of all types. West Park, located on the western edge of Bach, have fields as well, along with picnic facilities and a band shell for outdoor concerts.

Many of the local schoolchildren attend Bach elementary school and then, depending on which area of Bach you live in, will attend a variety of high schools, many of which leave the choice up to the students living in the Bach area.

If you choose to visit Bach, you will likely find it as charming as I do. With so much to see and do, it is a wonderful place to raise a family.
