"Nice Tract Homes--No Really!"

So this is another one of those homogenous Danville neighborhoods where the tract houses all look somewhat alike. Unlike the impression that you may have of tract houses, however, these tract homes were clearly made for an upper crust clientele—really nice looking and big, big, big (over 3000 ft. as a starting point).

Here is the basic essence of the houses: a drive way that leads up to a two door garage on one side (the doors are different sizes, one just big enough for a single car the other big enough for two cars). The front door is in the middle of the house and it has a high entrance area with a window on the floor above the door that sometimes has a little Romeo and Juliet style balcony. The living room to the other side of the front door usually has big panorama style windows and are close to the windows on floor above. Sometimes the fireplace is up front, sometimes it is on the side of the living room inbetween homes.
Other rooms are also above the garage.

They vary everything from colors to tile types to window types but the floor plan seems to be pretty close to this throughout.
It’s nice. It would be good in case you need to borrow some sugar—you can just let yourself into your neighbor’s house and head right over to kitchen. You will know in advance where everything is—no guess work necessary.

You are right by Blackhawk here, so you will definitely have to pay for it, but if you can afford it, you might like it here. It seems like a good quiet—somewhat boring—place to raise kids.
