I know all this because I live in Sandhurst. I've been here since 1982...(Imagine a REALTOR that has stayed in one place for 28 years)....my next door neighbor built her house in 1961 and still lives there.
I hang with the crowd that says: "THEY'LL HAVE TO HAUL ME OUT-A-HERE !!"
Great place to live.
