Our neighborhood was established in the mid 1930's and has been lovingly maintained ever since. The historic homes offer a glimpse of American architecture in the 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's. Though located in the heart of the city, this well-established neighborhood is friendly and quiet. Its well-lit streets and tree-lined drives create a charm and ambiance not found in newer developments. Located just across Sheridan Rd. from The Knolls, Peoria's premier historic neighborhood.
As mentioned above, it is also minutes from the riverfront, malls, dining and casino.
Just minutes' drive to Grandview Drive, often said to be one of the most beautiful drives in America. Grandview boasts glorious mansions with stunning river views. Also in close proximity to historic Moss Ave., which is dotted with mansions dating back to the 1800's, as well as a Frank Lloyd Wright house.
Our party includes 2 adults, a computer engineer at Caterpillar and an Administrative assistant/student. We are tidy and take good care of our home. We enjoy volleyball, sight-seeing, shopping, rock climbing and spending time with friends and family.
