Some Reasons Why Oxxford Hunt is One of My Favorite Cary Neighborhoods

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

       One of the many Bond Park Trails

Bond Lake TrailOne of the songs that I would sometimes hear and sing along with as a child  was a little ditty called "Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood?" The short answer to that question was always "They're the people that you meet, when you're walking down the street; they're the people that you meet each day."
Now I actually live in an area that reminds me of that song. Cary's "Oxxtord Hunt" subdivision doesn't have stone signs to mark its entrances. Oxxford Hunt residents make due with a stylized yellow fox design on blue plastic. On the other hand, we have mature landscaping, a well-appointed clubhouse, a resurfaced tennis court, a pool with a generous deck, and an
unusually responsive homeowners' association. When I asked permission to cut down a tree that leaned ominously over my driveway, the board responded quickly, and did not force me to wait a month  before approving the request.

I think what I like best about Oxxford Hunt are the animals who share the neighborhood with us. There are cats and dogs here, of course, but there is alxo a motley collection of wildlife drawn to the neighborhood because it plays host to Bond Park. Hgh school cross-country teams see bluebirds and cardinals wherever they run. A small herd of deer in the park sometimes glides through people's backyards. Wild cottontail rabbits can thwart vegetable gardeners when garden plots aren't fenced off. And if you walk attentively along the shores of Bond Lake, you can see not just geese and ducks, but also owls and a pelican or two. People who walk quietly along the streets and trails of Oxxford Hunt can sometimes even catch a glimipse of the swim team's namesake, the Swamp Fox.

Cathleen -- I agree with Georgina -- excellent method of connecting with people --- personal yet professional.   You describe Oxxford Hunt in a manner where people can visualize the neighborhoods, the animals(wild and domesticated) and the idyllic setting.  Nicely done.
