Jester Estates feels like an escape from the city, a place where you can enter a more leisurely, carefree lifestyle. The community features winding streets with lots of cul-de-sacs and circles, so there are lots of quiet, private streets. There are beautiful views of the drops and hills as the sun sets in the west. There is a real sense of belonging, and the homes themselves are spacious.
