Resident Profile: The Barbee Family

How long have you lived in Pinewood Forest? Since February 2018.

What drew you to Pinewood Forest? We were attracted to Pinewood Forest because we wanted to spend more of our time caring for and maintaining relationships than caring for our house, lawn and possessions. The creative and diverse environment was also a big draw for us.

What makes your home unique? We live on the Great Lawn and enjoy seeing all the activities and people as they pass. In December 2018, our daughter Lydia married Cedric at the pavilion on the Great Lawn.

What are some of your favorite hobbies or activities? We love being active outdoors—walking the trails, riding bikes and we are well known for riding our electric scooters around the neighborhood. We enjoy the neighborhood kids stopping by for ICEEs or asking for Josiah to come out and play.

What amenity are you enjoying the most in the community? We enjoy games in the parks, playing basketball and tennis, meeting new neighbors and their dogs at the dog park. The swimming pool remains at the top of the list, with the infinity edge and the Jamaican music - it really feels like a true getaway.
