I currently live about a mile from the highest point in Norman. For the past 8 years, I've walked up to the top of the hill hoping that some day I could live there. That may happen soon!! Summit Lakes, one of my favorite neighborhoods in Norman, recently expanded to the top of the hill with home sites now available.
One of the lots is now reserved for me!!! It's at the top of a street called Horizon View Ct. It's about 2 feet lower than the highest point in Norman. Hopefully, if everything goes according to plan, this will be the view from my front yard in about 9 months:
The lights on the far left are buildings in downtown Oklahoma City, 25 miles north. Some of the towers on the right are over 30 miles away. It's an awesome place to watch storms, which I used to do there before any houses were built.
The neighborhood has several lakes with walking trails around them, and most of the houses are part brick and part stone (my favorite!). And it's only 2 minutes from where I live now, which will be handy if I rent out my current house. The main cross street, 36th Ave, happens to be the street that country singer Toby Keith lives on.
Here are a few more pictures either from "my" street or the next street over:
