Picture a street off the TV show "Mad Men" and you'll get a pretty good idea of the neighborhood. This home is tucked away in a beloved neighborhood off Rivermont Ave, but this section of the neighborhood is so unique because there are a few blocks of these midcentury homes that were originally built for the executives back in the day. It's safe, quiet, and you'll likely see people out walking to and from the nearby walking trails.Getting around
Walk (or drive) to the nature trails, coffee shop, or restaurants nearby.
