Rock Creek features beautiful, custom built homes in a wonderful family-friendly environment and is situated among a championship golf course. This desirable community boasts a great location right off of Hwy 98 within close proximity to downtown Fairhope, Thomas Hospital, and schools (you'll read more about that later). On the other hand, the developers designed the neighborhood perfectly by situating all of the homes tastefully away from the traffic of the Highway. You won't see the homes from the road and you won't hear car noise from your property.
For those who are already familiar with this area, they would tell you that Rock Creek is one of the most sought after and well-appointed neighborhoods in Fairhope. As you can see from the photo above, there are plenty of mature trees throughout and most of the home sites are larger than what's typical in the county. These two factors alone give home owners a sense of privacy while living in a large community.
Rock Creek is very walk-able and family friendly. You'll find wide streets, rolling elevations, sidewalks, and plenty of street lamps. If you love to run or walk this place is for you! You'll never have to leave your own neighborhood to get in your exercise for the day. While driving through, you'll find that the whole area is "easy on the eyes" from residents showing a tremendous pride of ownership.
