Cordova: The Town

31 05 2010

Do you have a place in your heart where you always imagined you’d “end up”? Your final home? Your dream home? Where you’d be happy to live out the rest of your days?

That place may have changed for me over the years, as I’ve had new experiences, but my first such dream home just happened to be in a beautiful community in Memphis.

Cordova is a suburb of Memphis — your classic suburb. In fact, I went to high school in Cordova, where everyone knew each other, you could cheer for the local high school at a football game or run into your neighbor at church on Sunday.

Tucked away within this section of town is a quaint, perfect community named “Cordova: The Town.”

Developed in the 90’s, near the heart of downtown Cordova, it is a perfect picture of the traditional neighborhood, surrounded by the conveniences of location. The houses are built near to each other, but spacious in that most are 3-stories tall, built with hardwood floors. Centered around a classic “main” circle, this neighborhood is high on charm.

I love that newer neighborhood developers are paying attention that home-owners wish for the days with Southern charm, a community feel, and beautiful surroundings.

Where do you dream of living?
