"Barton Hills – Close to Ann Arbor Minus the Traffic"

What could possibly be better than living in the college, trendy and hip city of Ann Arbor? How about living just outside of it so you can enjoy all the amenities and events that the city has to offer, without traffic congestion and loud music?

Don’t blink when you go through Barton Hills, if you even realize you are in this tiny village. There are just over 300 residents, so this brings new meaning to knowing all your neighbors.

Everyone loves to go to Ann Arbor; the streets are lined with restaurants, bars, boutiques, shopping plazas, art galleries and even cafes with poetry readings, but not everyone enjoys dealing with the constant chaos that many neighborhoods offer. Living in Barton Hills means that you enjoy all this, plus outstanding schools, fantastic hospitals and everything else you could want, only in a small, quaint community.

Barton Pond is lovely, there is a wrought iron bridge and streets are lined with lush shade trees. The houses are gorgeous, landscaping is manicured and the area is beyond safe, but you are going to need to make a lot of money to live here, because the average home costs around $850,000.
